Ogden, Iowa — The Humboldt Wildcat boys basketball dropped their non-conference finale last evening, 54-45 at Ogden High School.

The Bulldogs started hot taking a 12-6 1st quarter lead, which they held at halftime as well, 28-22. The Cats won just one of the four quarters, outscoring the Bulldogs 15-14 in the final quarter.

Ben Heeren led the way for Ogden with 21 points, while going 8-for-12 and 2-of-4 from three.

Heeren also registered 13 rebounds for his second straight double-double.

Humboldt dropped to 1-2 following the loss, and will head to Webster City Friday to begin North Central Conference play.
