RALEIGH — Due to a last minute schedule change, the Scotland boys basketball team did not take the floor against Western Harnett Tuesday night.
Instead, Matt Justin’s squad squared off against Sanderson in Raleigh, where the Scots dropped their fifth game of the season.
Sanderson defeated Scotland 59-53 to improve to 3-2 overall while Scotland fell to 1-5.
Sophomore guard Niem Ratliffe paced the Scots with 22 points, and senior guard Willie Douglas chipped in 11.
Scotland is off until Dec. 16 when it travels to play Jack Britt.
