Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau-Douglas Yadaa.at Kalé boys basketball team opened their season in the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas, Nevada with a 42-30 loss to home town Amplus Academy.
“We had pretty balanced scoring,” JDHS coach Robert Casperson said. “But not enough scoring overall.”
Amplus led 19-13 after one half of play. The tournament is run with two halves of action instead of four quarters.
Juniors Orion Dybdahl and Josephy Aline and Sophomores Alwen Carrillo and Sean Oliver scored six points apiece for the Crimson Bears. Junior Kai Hargrave added four points and senior Porter Nelson two. Hargrave had six rebounds and took two charges.
“Everyone played,” Casperson said. “Which is my expectation on this trip. So we talked about being ready to go.”
Casperson noted that Dybdahl played a solid game for the Crimson Bears.
“He is getting more confident and more aggressive every time he steps on the floor,” Casperson said.
The Crimson Bears next face Somerset Losee, from Las Vegas, on Saturday.
