Siuslaw: 42  Creswell: 52

Though it wasn’t the final outcome the Siuslaw boys basketball team had hoped for in its 2017 debut in Creswell Wednesday night, the 10-point loss to the Bulldogs still showcased the team’s potential with a senior-dominated line-up that includes four all-league returners — Jared Brandt, Trent Reavis, Jake Hickson and Kyle King — from last season.

King and Hickson led scoring with 9 points apiece in the match-up against the Bulldogs, a team ranked 8th in the OSAA 3A division and the only Mountain Valley League team currently ranked in the division’s top 10.

Full results were unavailable at press time.

Tonight, Siuslaw is on the road at Elmira for a non-league game with the Falcons (after press deadlines).

Tuesday, the Vikings face Newport in their home opener at Glenn Butler Court

Tipoff is 7 p.m.
