NORTH BEND — Spencer Barker scored 19 points and North Bend edged Roseburg 41-40 on Tuesday night in a nonleague boys basketball game.

The Indians (4-5) had three shots to win the contest in the closing seconds, but couldn't convert.

Brady Messner added 11 points for the Class 5A Bulldogs (3-6), who hit eight 3-pointers.

Freshman Mykah Mendoza led the Tribe with 14 points. Matthew Parker scored nine and Zach Martin chipped in six.
