Loss to Spartans
Culver also lost to the Sheridan Spartans (15-5) 58-37 Jan. 31.
The Bulldogs had some key players in foul trouble and had a tough time keeping the Spartans off the glass. Culver also missed 15 free throws in their league loss.
Freshman Logan Macy led Culver in scoring with 12 points and three assists, while Gomes added nine points and six rebounds. Spinelli ended the game with eight points and five rebounds.
Culver has three home games next as they face Santiam (16-4) at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5. They also face Colton (1-19) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, and Gervais (6-14) in a very important league game which will likely decide who gets the last league playoff spot at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11.
