The Montana State University-Northern men's basketball team was riding a seven-game winning streak into Saturday night's Frontier Conference game at UM-Western. But for the second straight trip to Dillon, the Lights couldn't find a way to get past the Bulldogs, as Western handed the Lights their first conference loss of the season, 69-64.
With the loss, the Lights dropped to 2-1 in conference play and 13-5 overall. Northern will host Carroll College and Rocky Mountain College this weekend in Havre.
