The Wisconsin Dells boys basketball team's recent struggles continued on Saturday with a 61-42 non-conference loss to River Valley on Saturday afternoon at Wisconsin Dells High School.

The loss was the third in a row for the Chiefs, and the seventh in their last eight games.

The Blackhawks (7-6) had four players score in double figures and were led by the senior duo of Gale DeVita and Tim Kinney with 15 points each.

Wisconsin Dells (4-10) was led by freshman Peyton Rohling, who hit three 3-pointers and finished with 13 points. Nate Scott chipped in with 12 points.

The Chiefs were scheduled to play host to undefeated Lodi, the Associated Press' top-ranked team in Division 3, but that game has been postponed because of the cold weather to Thursday, Feb. 6. The next scheduled game for the Chiefs is at home against Westfield on Friday night.
