POST REGISTER

At Rigby, sophomore Tori Anderson scored 16 of her 19 points in the second half to lift the Rigby High School girls basketball team to a 49-43 win Wednesday against Shelley, its first win of the season.

"We kind of let her get going and didn't do a good job of recognizing where she was on the floor," Shelley coach Burke Davis said.

Shelley took a 24-22 lead into halftime but the Russets have struggled coming out of halftime all season. It surrender the lead as Rigby outscored Shelley 14-7 in the third quarter.

"It's kind of another chapter, same book," Davis said. "Third quarter, it's been our Achilles heel. Seven points is the most we've scored all season."

Sam Orme led Shelley and all scorers with 21 points and went 9 of 10 from the free-throw line while teammate Kimber Call added 11 points. Kelsie Blanchard added 10 points for Rigby (1-3).

Shelley (1-2) hosts Idaho Falls on Tuesday.

Ririe 58, Aberdeen 40: At Ririe, Tasha Huff scored a game-high 20 points to lead Ririe to a nonconference win.

"She's just a hustler," Ririe coach Damien Smith said. "We're not running straight plays. She's crashing the boards and giving us second-chance points."

Ririe broke out to a 15-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and built it to 35-16 at halftime despite making 4 of 16 free throws.

Kenedee Moon and Madeline Connaughton each added nine points for Ririe (2-2), which travels to South Fremont on Tuesday.
