After three losses, two of which featured lost leads, the Lady Kings (8-10, 2-2) had watched a 31-10 lead over Thunder Mountain be cut to 6. Then Nadire Zhuta iced the game with a jumper with 1:32 and Kayhi prevailed 35-27.
The win brought Kayhi’s streak against the Falcons to 20 games and snapped a 4-game losing streak.
“It felt good to play together,” senior Ashley Huffine said. “It leaves a better taste from the trip that we get to go home on a win.”
Huffine said the streak doesn’t impact how the team prepares.
“I don’t really think about it too much, it’s just another game against the Falcons,” Huffine said. “They can be dangerous, so we can’t take them lightly.”
The Falcons gave Juneau-Douglas its only conference loss (40-36) on Feb. 1.
