Sabado rewarded for staying in program
With 4 minutes, 10 seconds remaining in Friday’s boys basketball game against Palmer, Kodiak’s Juwan Sabado hit a floater in the lane. To the normal observer it was just a bucket that trimmed Palmer’s to 14 points. It meant more than that to Sabado. It was the senior’s first career varsity points. “I kind of just threw it up there hoping it would go in,” Sabado said before Tuesday’s practice. “Once I saw it go in ...
