Caitlin Pusich knocked down four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter Saturday to lead Juneau-Douglas High School over South Anchorage High School on the final day of the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout.

The 51-43 victory gave the Crimson Bears a third place finish in the Maroon Division of the tournament, hosted by Dimond High School.

Pusich led JDHS with 16 points, all coming in the second half. Kallen Hoover followed with nine, Erica Hurtte with eight, Tona Fogg with six and Cassie Dzinich added four.

Isabel Babiak led South with 13 points on the night.

The Crimson Bears jumped on the Wolverines early, building a 14-7 first quarter lead by giving up just two field goals.

JDHS then managed just two field goals of its own in the second, allowing South to cut the deficit to 22-19 at halftime. In the third, South chipped away at the lead even further leading to a one-point game, 30-29, starting the final period.

Despite putting up its high point tally in the fourth quarter, there was little the Wolverines could do to stop the Crimson Bears, or more specifically, Pusich. JDHS rallied to score 21 points in the final period behind Pusich’s four 3-pointers.
