Tanner Nelson scored a game-high 31 points, but it wasn’t enough to rally Union at the Barlow Trail Tournament in Gresham, Ore.

West Linn led 62-49 after three quarters. Union cut the deficit to single digits, but poor free throw shooting hurt the Titans.

Union will play at 1:30 p.m. Friday against Barlow or Canby.
