Hunters succumbs to comeback
Hunters looked to have another win on their hands Wednesday night against Curlew, but a fourth quarter comeback by the Cougars sent the Lions home with a 57-55 loss.
The Lions held a slim margin over Curlew through the first three quarters, getting out to a three point lead in the first and getting to half up by a basket. Hunters (2-14, 0-12) pushed the lead back to three at the end of the third, but the Cougars picked things up just enough in the fourth to flip the lead and get the win.
Ryan Reynolds had 23 for Hunters to lead all scorers, and Trae Young added another 15 for the Lions.
