He might be older, but Juneau’s Carlos Boozer is still a beast in the post.

The 6-foot-9 forward collected his second double-double in his third game with the Ghost Ballers of the BIG3 pro basketball summer tour.

The 13-year NBA veteran scored a team-high 17 points on a game-high eight field goals to go with a game-high 11 rebounds. His team lost 50-40 to the Ball Hogs.

After three weeks, the Alaska Sports Hall of Famer leads the BIG3 with 27 rebounds and is fourth with 54 points.

Ghost Ballers are 0-3, one of two winless teams in the 8-team BIG3. The team includes Mike Bibby, Ricky Davis, Marcus Banks and is coached by George ‘Iceman’ Gervin.

They will play Power (2-1) in Week 4. That team features Corey Maggette, ‘Big Baby’ Glen Davis, ‘Birdman’ Chris Anderson and is coached by Nancy Lieberman.

The game is a rematch of last year’s BIG3 third-place game won by the Ghost Ballers in the league’s inaugural season.
