For the Tigers (2-8, 1-5 SHL, 1-4 ICC), Mikell McGee fired in 28 points, Lucas Wingert had 12 and Layton Hoffmann 10.

Shenandoah Valley 60, Shalom Christian 41 >> After starting out slow and having a difficult final quarter, Shalom Christian suffered a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference loss at the hands of Shenandoah Valley.

The Flames (9-4, 4-1 MDCC) scored just four points in the opening quarter, and after catching up to trail by only six heading into the fourth, Shalom got into another slump and scored six points in the final eight minutes.

“We struggled early on making shots and fell behind early in the first quarter,” Shalom coach Danley Shank said. “I thought we were able to get back in the game with our defense and played a pretty good second and third quarter. We can take some good things from this game and also learn from some of the things that we need to do better.”

Jonah Stains stayed on a roll with 21 points.
