Mallory McGwire scored 12 points and Daranda Hinkey had 11 as the Reno girls basketball team rolled over Spanish Springs, 73-25 on Friday at Reno.
Reno improved to 7-1 in league and Spanish Springs fell to 3-5.
“We’re really coming out hard, and it was a really good start,” Hinkey said. “We worked on our game. That gives confidence to our whole team.”
Reno raced out to a 22-0 lead and was ahead 49-10 at the half.
When the Huskies went ahead 52-11 early in the second half, the running clock was implemented.
Reno coach Shane Foster said when Bishop Manogue beat Reno last week, that loss lit a fire under his players.
“We’re trying to make sure we take everything one possession at a time,” Foster said. “We want to make sure we’re competing on the defensive end every time. We’re trying to get better at talking, boxing out. We’re really trying to improve on the little things.”
A lot of the Huskies bench players got playing time Friday as 10 players scored.
“They’re working real hard in practice and when they get their opportunity, they’re playing well too,” Foster said. “We played a solid ball game today.”
Anhelica Shanrock led the Cougars with 11 points.
Spanish Springs coach Art Cardenas was glad his team kept competing.
“We didn’t start off very well, we got rattled at first and just weren’t doing what we were supposed to be doing,” he said. “We worked on it, but we didn’t execute our fast break.”
