Hannah Wandersee racked up a double-double Saturday to carry the Kodiak Bears to the championship of the Lady T-Bird Hoops Classic at East High.

Wandersee scored 20 points and collected 11 rebounds in Kodiak's 56-45 win over East. It was the closest contest in three tournament games for Kodiak, which had to play twice on Friday after missing Thursday's action because its flight to Anchorage was delayed by bad weather.

Megan Pyles chipped in 12 points and Carissa Cannon 10 for the Bears, who led 20-7 after the first quarter.

East was led by Taria Page's 21 points and 18 rebounds.

In Saturday's other games, Palmer beat Seward in the third-place game, Houston topped Nome in the fourth-place game and Service nipped Eagle River in the seventh-place game.

Palmer 47, Seward 34

Palmer claimed third place with a 47-34 win over Seward that was fueled by Carly Venzke's 15 points and Leya DePriest's six points, four blocks and four rebounds.

Laura Kromney led Seward with 14 points and six rebounds.

Houston 43, Nome 32

Savannah Wells pumped in 22 points to lead Houston to fourth place with a 43-32 win over Nome.

Kimberly Quincy contributed eight points and seven rebounds for the Hawks, who lead 12-5 after one quarter.

Adelaine Ahmasuk (17 points) and Senor Ahmasuk (11 points, 8 steals) powered Nome.

Service 48, Eagle River 47

Amanda Allard dropped in 10 points and Kavla Swan grabbed 10 rebounds to help Service edge Eagle River 48-47 in the seventh-place game.
