He was told earlier in the day that his team was going to play West Valley, a squad that placed fifth at last year’s 4A state tournament. The switcheroo was because West Valley was the only visiting team to arrive for the first day of The Floyd. ...

48th Joe Floyd begins today
Be careful what you wish for. Kodiak coach David Anderson took some heat for a weak boys field in last year’s Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Basketball Classic. Bristol Bay and Unakleet — a pair of 2A schools — and Northern Lights Conference rival Soldotna made up last year’s boys field. “I heard a lot of people last year ask why we didn’t bring in stronger teams,” the veteran bench caller said. “Well, we got the st...

The 3A boys basketball classification reigned supreme last season, and it appears that will be the cream of the crop this season. All the 3A hype is centered on Barrow — the early-season media darlings. The Whalers, with all-world freshman Kamaka Hepa, is 4-1 against 4A schools.
