DANVILLE -- The North Putnam freshmen basketball team dropped its contest with Danville 38-22 Tuesday.
Jacob Lucas led the Cougars with seven points while Payne Stewart added five. Cody Beck contributed four points with Tommy Welch adding three, Josh Hunt two and Garrett Porter one point in the lose.
The Cougars trailed by only six points at the half but a three point third quarter was too much for North Putnam to overcome.
"They had some good shooters," NP head coach Steve Peek said. "We play real hard, maybe the hardest they've played all year."
North Putnam will host Tri-West at 6 p.m. Monday.
