Wildcat boys give it their all on the hardwood on a big stage….an NBA one down in the Rose City

Mount Si High School’s boys’ basketball team opened their season last night competing on a rather big stage – the home of the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers.

And for the Wildcats, things seemed to go well but a slow start out of halftime ended up costing Mount Si in the end as they suffered their first loss of the season.

Churchill, of Eugene, outscored the Wildcats 16-7 to open the second half and handed Mount Si a 55-47 loss in a “Border Battle” game pitting top teams from Washington and Oregon at the Moda Center in Portland. The brothers Patterson – senior and Montana State-bound Tyler and sophomore Quin – each had 14 points to lead the Wildcats while Tyler’s senior classmate, St. Mary’s-CA bound Jabe Mullins, added 13.

Mount Si meets Redmond on Tuesday to open Kingco play at Redmond High School at 7:15, then hosts Union from southwest Washington Saturday night for their home opener at 6:00.
