In the first quarter of its first two games this season, the Seymour boys basketball team was unable to get its offense rolling.

In the Owls’ third game, on Saturday night at home, Franklin scored the first 13 points and went home with a 55-27 win.

“We shot the ball pretty poorly tonight,” Owls coach Scott Miller said of his team going 10 of 34 from the floor. “Our worst spots tonight were certainly shooting percentage and we did a really poor job of rebounding.”

The Owls missed their first three shots from the floor and had three ­turnovers. Nicholas King’s basket with 3:30 left in the first quarter put the Grizzly Cubs on top 13-0.

Logan Miller made a 3-pointer for the Owls at 2:50, and Zak Lucas made another shot from beyond the arc with 50 seconds left in the period to make it a 17-6 game at the end of one.

Landon Booth added a pair of 3-pointers in the second quarter, and Seymour shot 4 for 20 in the first half and trailed 29-12 at the break.
