ASHLAND -- Expectations are higher than they've ever been for the Southern Oregon men's basketball team, who opened the season No. 11 in the country. Their season opener ended in a loss, though, as they fell to the University of Maine-Fort Kent, 101-95.

They jumped out to an early 25-12 lead thanks to solid three point shooting, but as that three point shooting percentage shrunk, so did the Raider's lead. The Bengals stormed back, taking a 41-40 lead with 3:03 left in the first half. It was a back-and-forth game from there as U of M-Fort Kent pulled away in the end.

Tate Hoffman scored a team-high 22 points in the losing effort, while Jordan Hunt poured in 20. Aaron Borich was impressive off the bench, scoring 13 points 3-of-5 shooting from three-point range.
The Raiders' next game is against Simpson in Redding, California next Tuesday night.
