Wildcats Fall to Hot Handed Tigers
Salem Junior Nick Conklin was once again hot from the start, finishing the game with 24 points despite fouling out with just over three minutes to play in the contest. Nick Hempen had twelve points, ten of those coming in the second half.
Tate Noren knocked down four three-pointers to lead his team with 17 points. Alex St. Pierre and Evan Eagleson each added 14 apiece.
Salem struggled to get to the foul line, going only 2-for-2 from the charity stripe. Olney was 12-of-17 from the free-throw line.
Salem returns to action Friday night at Effingham.
