There are no tangible consolation prizes for coming up just short on the basketball court. But the West Las Vegas Dons (4-11) will take a moral victory at this juncture of the season.
The Dons came within two possessions of beating Wingate on Saturday night in the St. Michael’s Round-Robin Tournament before falling 62-56 and finishing 0 for 3 in the three-day event.
West’s Jordan Lopez and Wingate’s Lambert Michalski traded trips to the foul line, then Martin Blea’s free throw cut the Bears’ lead to 58-53.
