Learning to finish off the easy basket would go a long way toward a victory, hinted Eagle River boys basketball coach Fred Young after the Wolves’ 42-35 loss to Dimond last week. “It was another game that we let slip away,” he said, referencing the shortfall to South Anchorage High of the previous week. “We missed 15 layups — and nine of those were uncontested. We had breakaways; we just needed to learn to finish. We held Dimond to only 42 points. Our defense is doing well.”
