Wolves look to bounce back, hosting Jefferson Friday

The Three Forks High School Boys' Basketball team had a five-game winning streak come to an end last week when they fell 67-35 at home on January 11 against Manhattan.

The visiting Tigers came out on fire from behind the arc and hit seven threes on their way to a 26-4 lead at the end of the first quarter and would hit two more in the second to take a 38-11 lead into halftime.

Wolves (6-4, 4-1) Head Coach Terry Hauser said during the hot stretch for the visitors, his team gave up about three or four offensive rebounds, which gave Manhattan second chances.

"They hit threes on every single one of them," he said.

Following the game, Hauser said good basketball teams would have shooting nights like Manhattan, but a problem was his team did not keep their composure.

"If we hold our composure, we can chip away at it, but oh boy, we lost our heads worse than I've seen in two years," said Hauser. "We've just got to learn from it, and we've got to get back and watch some film, show them the mistakes they made, and see if we can own up to it. It's easy to have good character when you're winning. It's times like this that really show who you truly are, and we will see what we are made of."

Three Forks was led in scoring by freshman Kanon Reichman with 15 points. Dylan Swenson and Shane Williams had four, Sam Tesoro, Hunter Feddes, and Dryden Frisinger finished with three, Colten Hayder had two, and Devon Long added one.

While Hauser said he would have liked to get his team back on the court on January 12 at Lone Peak, the game was postponed until January 26 because of the weather conditions. The Wolves will host Boulder on January 19 and travel on January 20 to play Ennis.
