Steamboat boys basketball drops season opener

Steamboat senior Ethan Hoy gears up to take a shot during a Steamboat boys basketball practice on Nov. 21. The Sailors began the regular season with a loss to Lutheran but hope to bounce back with two more games this weekend.

Opening the season against Lutheran, the Steamboat Springs boys basketball team suffered a 62-35 loss on Thursday, Dec. 1, during a tournament at Golden High School. 

The team struggled to put up points and made just 40% of its shots on the floor while Steamboat sophomore Jeffrey Sturges led the Sailors in scoring with 11 points including three 3-pointers. 

The 0-1 Sailors have a tough schedule to begin the season and will continue tournament play with games against Vista Peak and Sierra to close out the weekend.
