Tuesday hoops roundup

The host Cook Inlet Academy boys team defeated Noatak 52-49 in nonconference action to celebrate senior night.

CIA coach Justin Franchino said it was a back-and-forth game, with neither team leading by more than six points.

Franchino said the three seniors in the lineup played well. Braden Chumley did a good job guarding Noatak’s best player. Scott Habermann came up big on the offensive boards, while Keefe O’Dell made some big steals.

The final senior for the Eagles is Koebryn Mlynarik, but he missed the game due to illness.
