Riverside’s Lane Willoby scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough as Botkins beat the Pirates 46-41.
“Tonight‘s game really showed the importance of every possession,” Riverside head coach Seth Bodenmiller said. “In the first half, we gave them too many easy looks on offense. Then in the second half, we had a lot of poorly timed miscues on both ends of the floor. Every time we got their lead down to one, they would score four or six in a row to keep their distance. Now we have three league games over the next 10 days, so we have to get back to work tomorrow and get things going in the right direction.”
