The Lady Kings will host the Juneau-Douglas Bears tonight at 7:15 p.m.
Kayhi has won 3 straight after a 1-3 start, but it will be difficult to keep that streak alive. Kayhi will be without starters senior Payton Simmons (knee) and junior Madison Rose (concussion). JD is 6-2, with losses to Bartlett (57-54) and East Anchorage (57-55). The Bears return their best two defenders and their top offensive player. The Lady Kings are 7-3 in their last ten match-ups against JD and have won the region championship over the Bears for the past four seasons.

Keys to the game:
Kayhi will have to take care of the basketball and hit open shots while keeping 2x All- Conference player Caitlin Pusich in check. Pusich can score off the dribble as well as hit contested 3-pointers. Sadie Tuckwood is one of the fastest girls in the state and, along with senior Alyxn Bohulano, will pressure the Lady Kings.
