Brady Carandang is the Juneau Empire’s player of the week.
Carandang, a Thunder Mountain High School junior, scored 37 points in a weekend home series on Friday and Saturday against Juneau-Douglas. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound guard, led the Falcons both nights in 3-point field goals, scoring three treys on Friday and four on Saturday. Carandang made an unlikely half-court shot with about two seconds left in the second quarter on Saturday, sending the entire Thunderdome into a tizzy.
