Wolves bounce back with huge win over visiting Whitehall

Just moments after a 57-22 loss on January 4 at Twin Bridges, Three Forks High School Girls' Basketball Head Coach Lacy Noble said she wanted her team to learn from what she described as a humbling experience and use it to fuel them for their game the following night against Whitehall. The Wolves (6-3, 2-2 5B) did just that, coming out of the gates strong and never looking back in an impressive 66-32 win over the visiting Trojans.

Three Forks had an 18-6 lead at the end of the first quarter and took a 38-13 advantage into halftime.

"We had a much better night. I'm really happy with the whole court effort tonight, and each girl had a positive aspect to their game. It's nice when every girl can contribute in their role and teammates can appreciate it. We worked on pressuring the ball, and it paid off. The start was fast and up-tempo, and we didn't set up a half-course offense much. Then, when we settled down, the girls were patient with the ball and had some nice offensive movement," said Noble. "After a hard loss the night before, it's good to see what these girls have at their core, and they stepped up tonight."

Three Forks was led in scoring by sophomore sharpshooter Maddie Tesoro, who had four three-pointers and a game-high 25 points. Tanaya Hauser and AdaRae Thomas were also in double figures with 12 points, Kylee Reichman and Devynn Judd had five, Maya Noble finished with four, Bella Jones had two, and Zandra Potts added one.

"Maddie Tesoro had a big night for us and worked hard on both ends. It was a good conference win, and I'm happy the girls got this one tonight," Noble said.

Tesoro led Three Forks in scoring against Twin Bridges with 11, Reichman finished with five, Hauser had three, Maya Noble finished with two, and Judd had one.

"Twin Bridges is really good, but we cannot live and die by the three-point line. We have to be multi-dimensional," Coach Noble said.
