Anchorage Daily NewsJanuary 31, 2014 

Bartlett 66, Eagle River 59, 2OT

Marquis White came through in overtime Friday for the Bartlett Golden Bears in a 66-59 Cook Inlet Conference barnburner at Eagle River.

White hit a seemingly impossible shot at the end of the first overtime — he was more than half a court away from the basket when he netted a 3-point to send the game into a second extra period. 

“We pressured the inbounds pass and kinda left those guys open,” Eagle River coach Fred Young said. “He dribbled a couple times and threw it up.”

And hit nothing but net, Young said.

White scored four points to help Bartlett dominate the second overtime 8-1 and finished with a game-high 21. Bentiu Panoam tossed in 18 for Bartlett.

Four players hit double figures for the Wolves — Eric Andersen (15), Collin Metzel (11), Thomas Jones (11) and Alani Collins (10).

 

West 79, South 48

Deandre Wilson registered a triple-double Friday to carry West to a 79-48 victory over South in CIC action at South.

Wilson racked up 11 points, 10 rebounds, 10 steals and seven assists. Da’Zhon Wyche and Brandon Huffman each added 13 points for the Eagles.

Jared Hudson scored  team-high 13 points for South.

 

Service 55, East 54

Reece Robinson and Brad Wacker teamed up for 26 points Friday to spark Service’s 55-54 CIC boys triumph over host East.

Robinson led all scorers with 14 points.

Eudy Gomez led East with 12 points, seven rebounds and four steals, and Louis Bonner added nine points.

East had a chance at the end to win it, but Desmond Johnson’s shot missed the mark.

 

Dimond 53, Chugiak 32

Zach Deloney drained four of six shots from 3-point range Friday, highlighting Dimond’s 53-32 CIC win over visiting Chugiak.

Deloney and Carlos Diaz both finished with 16 points for the Lynx, who pulled away from an 11-11 first-quarter tie to lead 29-22 at the half. 

Dimond outrebounded Chugiak 34-22, getting six boards apiece from Diaz and Austin Osborne.

Alex Hess led the Mustangs with 12 points.
