Like the girls game before, the Badgers fell behind in the opening quarter, but the end result was different as the Lee Williams Volunteers beat Prescott 73-70 in the Badger Dome, Thursday night.

Kade Juelts was a huge thorn in the Badgers' side all night, scoring 38 points. Lee Williams opened up a 15-10 lead after one quarter and increased their lead 36-28 at the half. 

Prescott came out and had a big third quarter behind Jason Parent and Milap Owens, eventually tying the game heading into the final eight minutes.

Badger coach Travis Stedman said, "The game was in the balance in the second half. Every run by each team resulted in a counter run. We had our chances. I did a poor job in the last few possessions not putting our guys in easier situations to be successful. Our guys did enough to win the game, but it just didn't work out in the end. Sometimes the better team just does not win. That was the story tonight."

Jason Parent led the Badgers with 26 points. Milap Owens added 15, and Korey Schwartz had 12. 

Lee Williams won the battle at the free throw line, shooting 64% while the Badgers hit 50%. The Volunteers outscored Prescott 16-11 at the charity stripe.

The Volunteers improved to (3-1) in the Grand Canyon Region, (13-6) overall, while the Badgers drop to (2-2) in Grand canyon Region, and (3-8) overall. Prescott will face rival Bradshaw Mountain on Tuesday at 7pm in Prescott Valley.
