The Sigourney boys’ basketball team entered the season full of question marks and left it with some questions answered and others still needing fulfilled heading into next year.

Three nights after blowing out Moravia by 42 points, the Savages got blown out themselves, losing by 43 to an excellent Van Buren squad.

Van Buren, who has just three losses this season, made a statement early on against Sigourney, outscoring the Savages 24-5 in the first quarter and 20-9 in the second. After building a commanding 44-14 halftime lead, Van Buren kept after it and built its lead even further in each of the next two quarters, before pulling away for the 73-30 win.
