The Southwestern Warriors fell to 11-6 on the season on Saturday afternoon with another tough loss — this time to North Laurel in overtime.
The good news for Southwestern? It’s not like Chris Baker’s club is getting blown out in losses.
The 65-64 overtime loss to the Jaguars on Saturday at Clay County High School was the Warriors sixth loss of the season, and it was Southwestern’s sixth loss by a margin of three points or less.
That’s right — Southwestern, even in losses — has been right in every game all the way down to the wire.
Cole Dysinger paced the Warriors in Saturday’s loss with 22 points, while Brayden Sims recorded a double-double for the blue and orange, scoring 10 points and pulling down 10 boards.
The Warriors will try to bounce back on Tuesday night on the road before a huge showdown this weekend.
Southwestern will travel to Irvine tomorrow evening for a game at Estill County, before returning home to The Wigwam on Friday night to host arch-rival Pulaski County.
Both of those games are set to tip off at 7:30 p.m.
