HARRISBURG — Sweet Home handed the Sutherlin boys basketball team its first loss of the season Thursday, winning 45-44 in overtime on the first day of the Les Schwab Eagle Booster Classic at Harrisburg High School.

Casey Tow led the Class 4A Huskies (3-1) with 13 points, including a 3-pointer at the end of regulation to force overtime. Jake Swanson added 12 points.

Mason Gill scored 16 points for the Bulldogs (3-1) before fouling out. Brandon Carr had 14 points.

Sutherlin struggled at the free-throw line, shooting 39 percent (7-for-18).

Coach Willis New felt his team played a solid defensive game.

“We didn’t shoot free throws well and didn’t handle their pressure well,” said New. “They had some fairly quick guards and we turned the ball over too much. We have some young guards who have to grow up in a hurry.”

The Bulldogs will play Harrisburg (1-3), a 60-39 loser to Baker, at 5 p.m. Friday.
