The Reed boys basketball team fell to 0-3, 0-1 on the young season with a 82-49 loss to Jesuit on Friday night in its second game of the Wild West Shootout at Bishop Manogue.
Despite the lopsided final score, the Raiders hung with the private school early. They trailed just 18-14 after one quarter and 36-25 at the break. The distance remained respectable after three quarters, 56-40, before Jesuit outscored Reed 26-9 in the fourth.
“The score is not indicative of our effort,” Reed coach Zach Sanford said. “We were close until we got tired.”
Jeremy Ramos led the way for Reed, going for 22 points. Lincoln Turner finished with 14.
