Bandon’s boys basketball team got a road win Saturday, overcoming a slow start to beat Rogue River 75-61.

The Tigers trailed 16-13 after one quarter, but outscored the Chieftains 42-30 over the next two.

“We had a very sluggish first quarter,” Bandon coach Matt Angove said. “After that, we did a great job of executing our offense and hitting shots. It was a much-needed win after two close losses this week.”

Coby Smith had 25 points, Braydon Freitag 22, Matt Yarbor 14 and Jason Wilhite 11 for the Tigers. Derek Nelson scored 19 for Rogue River.
