JDHS at State Basketball Championships
You can forgive the Juneau-Douglas High School boys basketball team for leaving Colony junior Sullivan Menard a little too open from the 3-point line in the third quarter.
His last three had come and gone 18 minutes earlier in the game. Plus, he and the rest of the Knights offense were quiet through the first five minutes of the quarter.
But the 6-foot-3 guard caught fire from deep, scoring three 3-pointers in a row, the last of which put the Knights up 46-35 late in the third at the University of Alaska-Anchorage’s Wells Fargo Sports Complex.
JDHS drew within seven points of Colony in the fourth, but the Knights held on for a 71-59 win in the fourth-place game at the ASAA/First National Bank Alaska state basketball championships. The loss results in a sixth-place finish for JDHS, its lowest at the tournament in the last three years.
