The Ninilchik boys toppled Cook Inlet Academy for the first time in three years Tuesday night at CIA, using a strong first-half effort to notch a 57-41 win.
The last time the Wolverines came out winners against the Eagles, Ninilchik senior Sam Mireles was a freshman. Tuesday, Mireles came up big with 22 points, many as a result of pinpoint assists from teammates that resulted in acrobatic layups.
“We locked down on defense like our coach showed us,” Mireles explained. “We locked down and when (CIA) tried to run their plays, they just ran out the clock on themselves.”
