First day scores of Ninilchik hoops tourney

Posted: February 13, 2013 - 11:54pm  |  Updated: February 14, 2013 - 1:15pm

The 2013 Ninilchik Tournament kicked off on Wednesday with four teams duking it out — Cook Inlet Academy, Noorvik, Chevak and host Ninilchik.

On the first day of competition, both Cook Inlet Academy and Ninilchik’s boys and girls squads split games against Chevak, Noorvik and the Soldotna girls junior varsity squad, who were a late addition as a fill-in for the Chevak girls.

Noorvik boys 68, CIA 60

A poor second quarter hurt the Eagles in their effort to beat the reigning 2A state champions on Wednesday.

Leading 16-13 after the first quarter, CIA only scored nine points in the second, while Noorvik had 19, putting the Bears up 32-25 at halftime.

Danny Wells of Noorvik had a huge game, scoring 38 points, including 14 in the second quarter alone.

Cook Inlet’s Timmy Smithwick led the Eagles with 23 points, and teammate Mylon Weems added 13.

CIA tried to claw back in the fourth quarter by outscoring Noorvik 17-14 but the deficit was too much to overcome.

Noorvik will advance to play Unalakleet on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., while CIA will play Chevak at 3:30 p.m.

CIA girls 49, Noorvik 30

The Eagles pulled away in the third quarter after a 21-12 halftime lead, outscoring Noorvik 15-6 to grab a first round win on Wednesday.

Chevak plays Cook Inlet Academy at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday while Ninilchik gets a rest day.
