Anchorage Christian Lions Roar Past Grace Christian

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--Many sports fans would say perfection is a mentality granted by years of hard work and practice toward a given facet of life.

For Anchorage Christian's boys and girls basketball programs, perfection (or near perfection) can be seen in not only the dominant win-loss records, but also through the style of play on-court.

Tuesday night proved to be another solid one-two performance from both the girls and boys basketball programs.

Final (boys basketball): Anchorage Christian 80, Grace Christian 49

For Anchorage Christian, Calvin Hoffman added 16 points, 11 of which came in the first half. Hoffman scored the game's first two buckets.

Jaylen Terry, Gus Simmers and Alex Brown delivered a knock-out punch by shooting lights out in the second half. Terry exploded in the third quarter by shooting 12 of his 21 total points in the quarter.
