An initial sentiment of exhilarating expectancy at the Alaska State Regionals Tournament was met with abrupt disappointment as the ASAA State Basketball Championship Tournament was cancelled March 11, and the Unalaska Raiders basketball teams were sent home prematurely.

 

Despite the untimely end to their seasons, both teams gallantly completed the regions tournament and arrived home with a few well-deserved wins under their belts.

Over the weekend, the Unalaska girls' basketball team played their first game since teammate Alexis Magalong died earlier this month. The Raiders beat the King Cove Rookies 36-19 on Friday. 

The game started with a moment of silence to honor Magalong, as well as Trey Henning – a 2017 graduate of Unalaska's high school – who died last week.

Unalaska's girls' basketball team swept Glenallen in last weekend's homestand.

On Friday, the Raiders beat the Panthers 41-19, before claiming a 47-27 victory on Saturday.

The girls' season record improved to 7-2 after the home contests, which included a "senior night" celebration for the squad's nine seniors.

Meanwhile, the Raider boys split their homestand.

On Friday, they defeated the Panthers 50-43, before dropping Saturday's game 42-49. Their season record is now 6-5.

The Raiders' next matchups are Feb. 13-15 in Valdez.
