It was a slow offensive weekend for the Turkey Valley boys basketball team (1-12, 1-10 UIC) as the Trojans managed just 32 points in two games, losing both.
Friday the Trojans hosted Clayton Ridge (11-3, 8-2 UIC), falling to the Eagles 71-22. The Trojans trailed 20-3 after the first quarter and 34-16 at the half. They scored just two points in the third quarter.
"Clayton Ridge pressured us to start the game, and we turned the ball over and it led to easy baskets for them," said Coach Chris Sullivan. "Clayton Ridge had a lot of athletes, and we had a hard time matching up with them. We played a lot of different defenses against them, but none of them seemed to get them out of rhythm. We thought the kids got some good looks tonight, but we failed to knock them down once again. Until we start knocking down shots we will continue to have low scoring outings."
The Trojan offense was led by Riley Buchheit, who had seven points and 12 rebounds. Nic Schaufenbul knocked down five points. Nathan Suell had four rebounds.
