BAKER CITY - The Pendleton boys' basketball team dug their way out from a 22-9 first quarter to lead by a basket at one point in the third quarter of their nonconference game at Baker Tuesday.

But the Bucks couldn't find the bucket in the fourth quarter and were outscored 15-7 as the Bulldogs maintained an unblemished record with the 69-64 win.

Pendleton coach Stu Clem said the Bucks (2-1) simply hit a bad spurt in the fourth quarter where they missed everything they put up.

While praising the play of Baker (3-0), Clem said it was a good performance for his team to learn from.

Spenser Sundin led the Bucks with 27 points while Devon Polhamus added 15.

The Bucks will host the Red Lion Holiday Classic this weekend and will play Ontario Friday.
