INWOOD - Buckhannon-Upshur lost a 37-32 decision to Musselman on Saturday.

"Considering the circumstances, I think we played very well," B-U coach Tristan Gray said. "We fought hard and kept them from hitting a field goal in the fourth quarter. If they had not hit their free throws down the stretch, we would have had an opportunity to pull of the win."
Musselman led 15-13 at the half and the game remained close throughout. B-U was led by a double-double performance from sophomore Megan Wilfong, who led with team highs of 13 points and 10 rebounds. The Lady Bucs (1-2) will entertain Webster County at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
