Bucs unable to get offense on track in loss at Morgantown


MORGANTOWN — A cold-shooting effort from the floor and 28 turnovers were too much for Buckhannon-Upshur to overcome in a 70-38 setback to sectional foe Morgantown on Monday night.

The Bucs, now 4-10 on the season, connected on just 12-of-36 of their field-goal attempts for 33.3 percent. They were also just 1-of-7 from beyond the arc.

The Mohigans (8-7) led 33-20 at the intermission before outscoring B-U 21-12 in the third quarter to build a 54-32 advantage entering the final frame.

Brayden Cutlip had 12 points and five rebounds to lead the Bucs. Jacob Loudin added three assists.

Drew Selders had 14 points, Cam Selders 11 and Garrett Haines 10 for Morgantown, which had 24 steals on the night.

The Bucs will return home at 7:30 p.m. Friday to face old rival Lewis County for a Big 10 Conference contest.
