Playing on the biggest stage thus far in their high school basketball careers, the Ninilchik boys should have been a nervous group Thursday morning.
Instead, the Wolverines are playing with the moxie of hardened veterans.
Ninilchik dominated the glass for a second consecutive day to claim a 64-39 win over King Cove and clinch a spot in the Class 1A March Madness state tournament semifinals. The Wolverines will face Anaktuvuk Pass, 49-48 winners over Minto, today at 3:30 p.m., with the winner going on to Saturday’s 1A title game.
