The Nikiski girls basketball team rained 11 3-pointers, including seven from Emma Wik, in picking up a key, 64-59 Southcentral Conference win over host Anchorage Christian Schools on Friday.

The Bulldogs improved to 10-1 in the league by avenging a loss less than a week ago to the Lions, who are 10-1 in the league. Nikiski was able to tie ACS atop the league standings by defeating Redington on Saturday.

The Bulldogs grabbed a 45-38 lead after three quarters and held on for the win in the fourth quarter.

Wik had just two points in the first quarter and eight at the half, but then erupted for 19 in the second half to finish with 27. Bethany Carstens hit a pair of treys to finish with 20 points.

Destiny Reimers had 27 points to pace ACS.
