Practice paying off for Ng
Sarah Ng owes her Joe Floyd Tournament 3-point contest title to her father Jimmy. The groundwork for her precise shooting was laid years ago inside the Coast Guard base gym. “He said, ‘Sarah, you can be a shooter,’ and I said, ‘OK, let’s work that.’ So we did,” Sarah said. Daughter and father spent endless nights inside the base gym, Sarah shooting and Jimmy rebounding. The two even played a little one-on-one and ...

Joe Floyd: Defense powers Kodiak boys to second place
Take away the opening six minutes of Kodiak’s 68-54 Friday night loss to West Anchorage, and the Bears could have easily won their 18th Joe Floyd/Era Aviation Winter Classic Basketball Tournament. West Anchorage blitzed the home team with a barrage of layups in the opening moments, racing to a 17-3 lead. Kodiak played the Cook Inlet Conference team even the rest of the way, but could never sustain a rally long eno...

KHS girls hold on to defeat Juneau
In need of a spark, Kodiak’s girls received it in the form of Jerica Nelson.
