STURGIS — Three Rivers girls’ basketball team is at its best when the pace of the game is quicker.
Sturgis’ plan to slow Three Rivers down worked for two and a half quarters.
But it was only a matter of time before Jason Bingaman’s Lady Cats found its rhythm on the offensive end and ran away to a 40-21 Wolverine Conference South Divisional road win Friday.
The win improves Three Rivers to 7-1 overall and 2-1 in the division. Sturgis falls to 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the division.
The game was a seesaw defensive battle through three periods with Three Rivers on top 18-17 entering the fourth quarter.
