The Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain girls don’t have much to show for their week at the Dimond Lady Lynx Prep Shootout in Anchorage.
The Crimson Bears and Falcons dropped their third and fourth respective games of the Anchorage tournament in Saturday’s maroon bracket action.
Eleven missed free throws came back to haunt JDHS in a 51-50 loss to Palmer. The Crimson Bears shot 5 of 16 from the charity stripe in their afternoon matchup, including 0 of 2 in the fourth quarter. Senior Alyxn Bohulano scored a team-high 12 points and sophomore Kiana Potter added 11.
Several hours earlier on the Dimond High School hardwood, TMHS fell to Ketchikan 35-27. Ketchikan, which secured fourth place with the victory, limited the Falcons to six points in the first half. Freshman Sydney Strong gave the Falcons a fighting chance with seven second-half points.
The Juneau teams, which will square off for the third and fourth times of the season March 1-2, played against each other in Friday’s consolation semifinals. JDHS won that game 33-31, and has taken two of the three crosstown games.
