Three Rivers took its Windex to Edwardsburg Friday, using a dominant performance on the boards to wrap up a 52-42 Wolverine Conference girls basketball victory.
Outrebounding the Eddies 51-29, the Wildcats’ 21 second chances on offense helped offset a rough night at the foul line (14 for 28). Three Rivers, which finished 19-for-50 shooting, was carried by senior Teagan Reeves’ 25 points and 23 boards.
Alexis Herbert added 14 points and two assists, Linsey Masnari scored eight points and secured 13 rebounds, and Kimmy Sibert had four points.
The Wildcats were down 7-5 after the first quarter, but outscored Edwardsbug 35-16 in the middle stanzas to get out of harm’s way.
“Played very well in the second and third quarters after a rough first quarter,” Three Rivers coach Jason Bingaman said. “I was happy with our execution after a six-day lull due to the weather.
“Our rebounding again was key to allowing us to get in transition and our press looked the best it has all year at times.We got some good minutes off the bench from [Addy] Cooper, [Alicia] Schmidtendorf and [Cory] Sanders.”
Three Rivers moves to 10-1 overall and 6-0 in the league. Edwardsburg is now 8-3 overall and 4-2 in conference play.
