The Scottie boys lost to the Wolf Point Wolves and the Malta Mustangs in two games held in Glasgow Jan. 12 and 13.

Wolf Point 48, Glasgow 44

It was a good match-up between the Scotties and the Wolves with both teams bringing high energy and consistency to the contest. Starting for the Scotties were Tyler Hersom, Luke Breigenzer, Trent Herbert, Brayden Ross and Cade Myrick. Ellis McKean and Bryce Legare came off the bench in each quarter of the game also.

For the Wolves, Brady Babb, Morgan Bauer, Owen Lepper, Joseph Williamson and Chevy Boos were the starting five. Coming off the bench during the game were Marques Whitehorse, Wesley Weeks, Deshon Smoker-Dewitt and JJ Azure.

The top scorer for the Scottie was senior Herbert with 13 points, followed by Myrick with 12. Ross led in rebounds, grabbing eight off the boards. Wolf Point was led by Babb, who scored 16 points.

In addition, the Scotties tallied up 12 total steals and 12 total assists in the game.

Neither team out-did the other at the charity stripe, with Glasgow going three for seven (43 percent) and Wolf Point hitting seven of 16 (44 percent.)

Glasgow did lose both Herbert and Hersom as they fouled out of the game.

Malta 60, Glasgow 32

The following night at Scottie Gymnasium, Glasgow hosted the Malta Mustangs. It was a less balanced contest with the Mustangs out-scoring the Scotties for the 60-32 win, although Glasgow did claim the second quarter 12-8.

In addition to the regular starting five for Glasgow, Legare, McKean and Tim Wageman also saw some time on the floor. Malta starters were Nate Costin, Hunter Love, Jace Bishop, Ostin Welch and Taylor Matthews. Tel Jensen, Konnor Kvetin, Blake Sjostrom and Kendall Koss came off the bench to play as well.

The top scorer for the Scotties was Herbert for the second game in a row with 15 points. It was an unusual game for Ross, as he was only able to score two points from the field and ended up fouling out of the game. Myrick also struggled offensively, contributing just four points during the contest, although he led the team in rebounds with five.

Costin and Welch were the high scorers for Malta with 16 points each.

Although the Mustangs didn't shine at the free throw line with 56 percent, and it wasn't really a factor in the outcome of the game, they performed better than the Scotties, who completed just 33 percent of their attempts.

Overall, head coach Norm Braaten points to the Scottie offense as lacking. "It's just not there for us," he explained. "Our shots aren't going in. We need to work on our confidence and take more shots in the game."

Coming up, the Scotties will play two non-conference games in Glasgow, hosting the Sidney Eagles on Thursday, Jan. 19 and the North Country Mavericks Saturday, Jan. 21
