Delta's boys basketball season continues to look a lot like last year's start. So far this season, Delta has failed to earn a win in four starts.
Its latest setback came on Dec. 10 in Cortez where it lost a 63-58 decision.
Last week's loss has the Panthers resting on the bottom of the 4A WSL standings with Summit. Both teams are currently 0-4 in 2013.
The Panthers trailed 11-7 after one period of play but owned a 25-24 lead at the break.
Each team scored 17 points in the third quarter keeping Delta on top by one, 42-41. Cortez used a 22-16 run in the fourth quarter that gave the host Panthers a 63-58 non-conference win.
Cortez had three players with double-figure scoring: Brackin Whiteskunk (19), Taylor Wilson (16) and Randy Haley (11).
Delta's statistics were inaccurate and no final credits were posted.
