It’s hard to believe that after beginning the season with six straight Northern Lights Conference losses, Kodiak’s boys basketball team has a chance to move out of the North Division cellar. But that is the case when Kodiak hosts Palmer in a pair of NLC games today and Saturday. Tonight’s game begins at 7:30 p.m., while Saturday’s tips at 4 p.m. A Kodiak (2-6, 8-12) sweep of Palmer (4-4, 13-10) would give the Bear...
