The Lady Kings (15-2) took 5th place in the gold bracket going (2-2) at the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout. The Kings beat Soldotna 44-29 and Colony 54-43 for the first two games of the tournament but fell short to Dimond 76-59 and East Anchorage 60-56 for the first two losses of the season. The Kings will be looking to get back on track this weekend playing Mt. Edgecumbe on the home court. The Dimond game was physical and they were hitting all of their shots said senior Eliah Anderson.
“It was a really physical game both teams giving it their all,” said Anderson. “The shots were going in for them to the point where they were just banking them all in.”
