EPHRAIM—Snow College men’s basketball team, playing on Saturday, March 3, to advance in the Scenic West Athletic Conference The Badgers were doomed by an unusually bad shooting night, where they could only manage 33 percent from the field and 27 percent from three-point land.

What made things worse, the Bruins had a banner night rebounding the Badgers misses. SLCC had 45 rebounds on the night, of which 32 were defensive rebounds (getting the Badgers misses).

The Badgers fell behind early and resorted to trying to catch up through the three-point shot.

But when you’re missing, and not getting your misses from the glass, that is a formula for a loss.

Stockton Shorts continued his recent trend of very efficient shooting and led the Badgers with 13 points.
