MISSION, Ore. - Nixyaawii's girls basketball team lost a close game with Ione in Oregon 1A Big Sky Conference basketball action Friday night, 60-55.

"It went back and forth for a while," said Golden Eagles head coach Jeremy Maddern. "Neither team had a lead bigger than five."

"It came down to the wire like both teams expected," Maddern said. "We had the ball with 18 seconds left and we were down by one, but we had a costly turnover and foul. They had some free throws at the end to ice the game."

The loss dropped Nixyaawii to 12-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play. They played a league game at Horizon Christian Saturday.
