The Two Rivers boys basketball team got off to a hot start offensively and scored a season high in a 77-54 road win over Kewaunee on Tuesday night.

The Raiders began the contest with a 6-0 run but Kewaunee chipped away at the lead and tied the game up late to make it 15-15 at the end of the first quarter.

With a little more than five minutes left in the first half, Kewaunee took its first and only lead of the game at 23-22.

Two Rivers responded, though, with an 11-0 run to take a 40-30 lead into halftime.

Two Rivers, which made six 3-pointers in the game and shot 9-of-11 from the free-throw line, led 60-40 at the end of the third quarter.

The Raiders committed seven fouls in the game.

Brett Linzmeier led Two Rivers with 21 points, three 3-pointers and five assists while teammate Ethan Willman had 18 points with three 3-pointers — eight points in the first quarter and eight in the third quarter.

Also for Two Rivers, Brett Kasper had 11 points to go along with a team-high eight rebounds and six assists.
