Chugiak 73, West 66

Chugiak upset the West Eagles 73-66 Tuesday night in a Cook Inlet Conference boys basketball game at West High.

Shooting guard Derryk Snell led the Mustangs with 14 points and 13 rebounds and point guard Zach Hauger added 13 points.

"That's a huge win," Chugiak coach Jocquis Sconiers said. "That's the first time we've beaten West in I don't know how many years."

West's Joey Barranco hit a buzzer-beating trey at the end of the first quarter, giving West a 18-14 lead.

Chugiak led 33-29 at the half, with Hauger scoring 11 of his eventual 13 points in the first half. The Mustangs extended their lead in the third quarter by outscoring West 23-20.

"They just wanted the win more than us," West center Sean Duffy said. "We had a bad warmup and didn't play very good defense late."

Chugiak forward Terrance Coates had 11 points, Josh Wilson contributed 10 and Hunter Harr provided eight points and nine rebounds.

For West, point guard Da'zhon Wyche had 28 points and Barranco added six.
