As a doctor, I usually need to ask similar pooping questions for every well visit and even most acute visits at the office.

KALIDA - The visiting Ada boys basketball team lost 47-40 at Kalida Friday night in a non-league defensive battle.

The Wildcats improved to 1-1 with the victory, while the Bulldogs fell to 1-2 with the defeat.

"We fought like heck; I am proud of our effort," said Ada fourth-year head coach Dre White. "Little things made the difference. We had some untimely errors and missed free throws." 

Kalida led 15-10 after the first period, yet the Bulldogs inched within 23-21 by intermission. The Wildcats stretched the lead to 36-28 after three quarters, then hung on to post the win.
