The Three Rivers girls basketball team reeled back and swung for a first-round KO on Friday night and connected as a offensive explosion out of the gates led to a 69-35 victory over the Shamrocks of Berrien Springs.
The Wildcats (12-2 overall and 7-0 Wolverine West) wasted no time, spending the first four minutes of the contest building a 14-0 lead. They would finish up the first quarter with a 16-4 lead, which would avalanche into a 34-11 advantage at the break.
Head coach Jason Bingaman said that he was pleased with the effort of his team, which included double-digit offensive scoring performances from Teagan Reeves (17 points, 11 rebounds), Linsey Masnari (16 points) and Krishanna Carter (10 points).
Wildcats fans saw a glimpse into the future with Carter and her 10 points. This was the freshman’s first varsity game of her career after being moved up from the JV team.
Three Rivers was very efficient from the field, finishing the night 30-for-52 and only resorting to two 3-pointers. Reeves drained her team’s only 3-ball.
With a firm grip on the first place spot in the Wolverine West, Three Rivers continues its schedule with a Monday game at Coloma. That is a make-up game.
