The Juneau-Douglas High School boys basketball team will try to win their 11th straight championship and 12th overall when the Crimson Bears host the 13th annual Princess Cruises-Capital City Classic this weekend.
After struggling to an uncharacteristic 1-3 record on its season-opening Anchorage road trip, the Juneau-Douglas High School basketball team needed to open the Princess Cruises-Capital City Classic on a strong note.
In the 2002-03 season, the Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball team had an standing goal of scoring 50 points a game. The Crimson Bears opened the 2003-04 season Saturday with a 60-point showing - and left the game feeling they could have scored even more.
The Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball stumbled a bit on defense Monday night. But the Crimson Bears' balanced offense lifted the team back up and delivered a 53-36 victory over the North Pole Patriots in the Princess Cruises-Capital City Classic, leaving the Crimson Bears on the verge of winning their home tournament for the first time since 1999.
