Huskies hoopsters fall to Tiverton

Third-place Mt. Hope faces Wheeler Tuesday night


The Mt. Hope High School basketball team fell to Tiverton Monday, snapping the Huskies' five-game winning streak.

The Tigers nearly doubled up Mt. Hope on the Tiverton High School court, beating the Huskies 57-30. It was the first loss for Mt. Hope since the Tigers visited Bristol on Jan. 12. That was another lopsided affair as the top-ranked Tigers won 66-48.

Mt. Hope sits in third place in Division III East, behind Tiverton, who at 14-0 is undefeated in league play (16-3 overall), and Wheeler at 11-2 (15-3 overall). The huskies have a chance to gain on Wheeler during a home game Tuesday night.
