Riverside upends Triad in girls hoops


Staff report



DeGRAFF – Triad lost to Riverside, 34-29, in non-league girls basketball on Monday.

“We played well on defense and we handled the ball as well as we have all season, but we had some breakdowns on defensive rebounding and only shot 1-20 from beyond the arc,” said Triad Coach Jeff Merklin. “If you’re shooting well, you can get away with some mistakes in other areas, and if you’re rebounding well, you can get away with an off night shooting….but you can’t be short on both.”

Alea Ferguson had 11 points and 8 rebounds to lead Triad (3-16).
