On Wednesday evening Saline made the quick drive to Pioneer for an SEC Red showdown. Saline was coming off a tough loss to Ann Arbor Huron, while Pioneer looked to continue their winning ways. 

The game started out with a quick triple from Pioneer senior Aiden Wright. At the 6:42 mark, Pioneer star Kasean Pryor picked up a quick second foul. Down 3-0, this was a huge opportunity for Saline. They didn't take advantage as Pioneer extended the lead to 7-0. Saline fought to stay with striking distance behind 7 1st quarter points from Griffin Yaklich

The 2nd quarter started with Pioneer leading 17-9. Drew Lowder heated up for 10 points in the quarter. Saline rode their traditional tough defense to stay in the game, waiting for scorers to heat up. They had opportunities to cut the deficit through their offensive sets, but missed too many open looks. Pioneer led 30-18 at the half. 

Saline came out of lockerroom with a spark. Two triples from Logan Evans helped Saline cut the lead to 6. Lowder responded with 6 points, including a fall away baseline to jumper to close the 3rd quarter. Pioneer pushed the lead back to double figures and took a 41-28 advantage into the 4th.
