NILES – Niles' varsity basketball team fell to Mishawaka Penn Saturday evening, 50-35.

Leading the way for the Vikes was Danny Rodts, who ended the night with 20 points and five rebounds. Mat Peters ended with eight rebounds.
"Danny played a great game for us and Mat's defense was tremendous," Pawielski said.
