Region V Basketball: Mt. Edgecumbe forces Sitka into Saturday playoff

The Mt. Edgecumbe Braves have come out of the loser’s bracket to challenge Sitka for the Region V Basketball championship.

The Braves defeated the Wolves 66 – 61 in what could have been their last game of the season. Instead, they’ve forced an “if” game, scheduled for 3:45 PM Saturday (3-8-14). In a double-elimination tournament, a playoff is required if a team has only lost one time. Friday evening’s defeat was the first loss for Sitka in the tourney.

Trailing Sitka nearly the entire game Friday evening (3-7-14), Mt. Edgecumbe rallied in the last two minutes of the 4th quarter — sparked by a gutsy basket and free throw from a first-time player. Listen to the call by Daily Sitka Sentinel sports editor Tom Hesse and MEHS athletic director Andrew Friske here:
