The Southland boys basketball team lost to Kingsland (7-6 overall) 78-72 in Adams Friday.

The Rebels (9-6 overall, 6-5 Three Rivers) tied the game up at 69 when Nick Schmitz hit a three with two minutes remaining, but their offense went downhill from that point.

“We had a couple of untimely turnovers at the end and that’s just the way the ball rolls sometimes,” Southland head coach Jon Thalberg said. “Both teams played hard and it was a good game.”
