SOU men ice cold in nonleague road loss

Another cold shooting night by the Southern Oregon University men's basketball team resulted in a 93-69 setback to Humboldt State Tuesday in an exhibition game at Arcata, Calif.

The Raiders (1-1) return to regular season play Friday and Saturday in Klamath Falls. SOU plays Lee University on Friday night and Bethany on Saturday night.

A pair of free throws by Jarrad Childs trimmed Humboldt's early lead to 5-4 at the 17:22 mark of the first half, but the Lumberjacks then took off.

Kyle Baxter hit a 3-pointer to give the NCAA Division II Lumberjacks an 18-5 lead.

A 3-pointer by Zac Tiedeman had the hosts cruising at 30-13 with 8:08 to play in the first half and Humboldt led 45-17 at the half and put the game away early.

SOU finished the game shooting 37 percent, hitting 21 of 57 shots, but the Raiders hit on only 4-for-14 shots from the 3-point line (29 percent).

Austin Wolfer led the Raiders with 18 points and seven rebounds. Trevor McCay finished with 12 points and Eli Thornton had 11 points.

Colt Mathews led Humboldt with 16 points.
