Prep boys basketball: Strong 2nd quarter lifts TR in win

By

Leading 14-9 after the first quarter, the Two Rivers boys basketball team held Campbellsport to two points in the second quarter en route to a 66-46 home win on the Raiders’ Senior Night.

After allowing Campbellsport to start on a 5-0 run, Two Rivers took its first lead of the game at 9-7 with two minutes left in the first quarter. The Cougars never led after that.

From there, Two Rivers (15-7, 9-5 Eastern Wisconsin Conference) held Campbellsport (10-12, 5-9 EWC) scoreless for the second quarter’s first seven minutes and the Raiders outscored the Cougars 14-2 in the frame to lead 28-11 at halftime.

Campbellsport mounted a slight comeback in the third quarter to cut its deficit to nine points midway through, but the Raiders’ offense found its groove and went on a 9-0 run in the closing moments of the frame to lead 43-28 entering the fourth quarter.

Brett Kasper led Two Rivers with 14 points and 10 rebounds while teammate Brett Linzmeier added 12 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds. Also for the Raiders — who went 2-of-2 from the free-throw line — Ethan Willman had 13 points with three of their six 3-pointers and Dexter Smith had 11 points.

Two Rivers, which has won 10 of its last 12 games, will be off until Friday when it hosts the winner of Tuesday’s matchup of No. 12 New Holstein (3-17, 2-12 EWC) at No. 5 Chilton (15-6, 12-5 Olympian Conference).

The Raiders are a No. 4 seed in the WIAA Division 3 State Boys Basketball Tournament bracket and the regional semifinal game will begin at 7 p.m.
