Mount Si boys finish California tourney on down note, as turnovers plague ‘Cats in loss to Nevada team

Mount Si High School’s boys basketball team has finished up their tournament play, and unlike the girls earlier, the Wildcat boys were on the short end of a blowout.

30 turnovers did not help Mount Si as they fell to Foothill from the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson, NV, 67-47 in the final game at the Rancho Mirage Holiday Invitational at Cathedral City High School in southern California this afternoon.

Mount Si finished 14th out of 16 teams in the “Open” division bracket, the highest level of competition in the tournament, and went 1-3 on the week. Tyler Patterson led the way for the Wildcats, scoring 21 points while Jabe Mullins added 16. Mount Si had made things interesting late, getting to within five points of the lead with around two minutes left in regulation, before the turnover bug hit in a big way to close things out. A total of eight turnovers in that final stretch, part of the aforementioned 30 on the contest, ended up costing scarlet and gray.

The Wildcats now will get set to head back to Seattle tomorrow. They will return to Kingco play this coming Wednesday hosting Skyline.
