Angoon boys blow by Kake to win 3rd straight
Angoon's biggest defeat of the season may have been its biggest win.

Ketchikan girls tame Chugiak to claim fourth at state
The Ketchikan Kings trailed for most of Saturday's fourth-sixth place game of the girls Class 4A state basketball tournament, but the Kings led when it counted as Cassie White and Mary Scudero led Ketchikan to a 57-44 victory over the Chugiak Mustangs at Sullivan Arena.

Yakutat girls slice Kake to claim 2A championship
Paced by a no-panic defense in the fourth quarter of Saturday's Region V-Class 2A women's high school basketball championship, Yakutat improved its Southeast season record to a perfect 17-0 with a 65-53 win over Kake at the Juneau-Douglas High School gym.

Juneau boys end up fifth
After rallying to take a 10-point halftime lead, the Juneau-Douglas boys basketball team found itself in a state of denial for the second half of the Crimson Bears' 72-60 loss to the Kodiak Bears in the third-fifth place game of the Class 4A state tournament Saturday morning at Sullivan Arena.

All-out Carrawell not enough to carry Duke
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - It was over. It had been over for a few minutes, actually, only the buzzer hadn't sounded. And by the look on its face, Duke's senior class knew it had been beaten by a better team, the dang Florida Gators.

Wrangell, Metlakatla eliminated
Brent Chadwick and Casey Perkins dominated the overtime period as the Nome-Beltz boys basketball team came from behind to eliminate the Wrangell Wolves with a 65-61 victory Friday in the Class 3A state tournament at Sullivan Arena. Chadwick and Perkins scored all 11 of Nome's points in the overtime period, plus both players made big steals down the stretch.

Tompkins keeps Olympics in sight with top finishes
Juneau's disabled skier Joe Tompkins notched four top-5 finishes at the U.S. Nationals in Mt. Snow, Vermont, last week.

Gold medal means more than basketball
When Kake won two Gold Medal trophies in 1998, they welcomed their players home like conquering heroes.

When Wrangell girls basketball coach Tami Meissner realized her team was going to be in the Breakfast Club game of the Class 3A state tournament - the 8 a.m. game Saturday for fourth and sixth places - she knew it would take a little extra to get the Wolves ready to play.
