FAIRBANKS, Alaska - We start today's sports with the biggest under dog story from the Alaska State Tournament.
The Ketchikan Kings came into the tourney as the eighth seed and walked out with the championship over the Dimond Lynx in dramatic fashion.
The Kings won 57-53 in overtime over the Lynx thanks to some of the greatest offensive brand of basketball I have ever seen.
KayHi was led by future Alaska Nanook Marcus Lee throughout the tournament, and had 14 points in the final game.​
His brother Chris Lee ended the night with 28 points and 10 rebounds.​
This is KayHi's first title since 1974 and they can thank the three point shot from Kristian Pihl.​
They also got the tip in from Robert Hilton-Seludo to put away the Thunderbirds and they spoke after the game about winning the title.

"Definitely this, this is going to be my last memory," said Marcus Lee. "This is going to be what we remember throughout our life and at our team reunion one day we are goin to be looking back at this moment and it's going to be awesome I couldn't ask for a better season with these guys and they're great and awesome. And these are my brothers right here, we're brothers and known each other for forever and man I'm stoked."​

"I knew it, I knew it," started Kristian Pihl; "I was having an off night. I had to keep my confidence and my composure and keep my confidence and just have the guts to knock it down. And fortunately."​

"I can't believe they put us at the eight seed," began Robert Hilton-Seludo. "When was the last time that we won? '74, that's crazy. We couldn't have done it without any of these guys right here all seniors. I don't know, I suck at interviews but hey."​

Eirc Stockhausen, the team's head coach, said, "I feel great I feel for the kids and I feel great for the community, these kids have worked really hard. They have given up so much to be a part of this and they are a very selfless group."​
