Unalaska's basketball teams will start their quests for the state championship on Thursday.
The Raider boys (12-3) are entering the tournament as the top seed.
In the first round, they'll face Hooper Bay — a team they beat last year, 48-29.
"With tournament play, you've got to take it one game at a time, survive, and advance without letting kids think ahead," said Coach Riley Spetz.
Spetz also said tough defense and rebounding will be key for his team.
