The Three Rivers girls basketball team sure knows how to cement a victory.
After building a 10-point lead through the first three quarters of play on Monday, the Wildcats blanked nonconference opponent Coloma in the final frame to claim a 59-37 victory on the road.
Like last game, Three Rivers (13-2, 8-0 Wolverine) was able to jump out to another relatively hot start, earning the 16-9 advantage after a quarter of play. The two teams went toe-to-toe for a couple of quarters before the Wildcats slammed the door shut by outscoring Coloma 12-0 in the fourth quarter.
Teagan Reeves and Linsey Masnari controlled their team’s offense. Reeves had a standout game for the Wildcats, pouring in a game-high 29 points. Only three of those points came from the free throw line, leaving her to earn the rest of it from the field. Masnari piled on 20 points, shooting a strong 10-for-14 from the field.
The two-woman wrecking crew, and the rest of the Wildcats, dominated the battle on the boards in the victory.
Alexis Herbert finished with six points and three assists, and Cheyenne Richardson posted four points for Three Rivers.
