REED CITY — Tri County (1-0, 1-3) held back a strong Reed City second half (0-1, 2-2) for a 46-39 victory in Friday’s Central State Activities Association Gold Division girls basketball opener for both teams.
“It was a tale of two different halves,” Reed City coach Brian Koopman said. “The first half, we came out and weren’t ready for that full-court 1-2-2 pressure. We just threw the ball around and panicked. We didn’t play good defense, we didn’t box out, we didn’t do anything the first half.”
