Pioneer jumped out to a 20-9 first-quarter lead and never looked back in a 61-47 victory Monday over Roseville in a non-league game at Pioneer. The Pioneers host undefeated and state-ranked Skyline on Thursday following the Eagles’ win Monday over Huron.

Senior Jacob Williams (5 of 10 from the floor) and sophomore Robert VanRenterghem (10 rebounds) each scored 11 points in the win. Senior Drew Lowder, who continues to work himself back into game shape, finished with 10 points, four steals, three assists and just one turnover.
Aidan Wright had six points and Jack Fitzgerald scored five.
