Kodiak senior Jemuel Mangalus fits the bill. “I picked the number out for him when I put him on the team,” KHS boys basketball coach David Anderson said. “I said, ‘you look like a double zero,’ and he went, ‘what?’ It is just a number that is different.” It is so unusual of a jersey number that only 28 players in the history of the National Basketball Associat...
