It was a win, but Triad’s girls basketball team didn’t give itself any style points Monday against host Riverside.

The Cardinals overcame a sluggish start and cold outside shooting to grab a 58-38 win over the Pirates in a local non-league battle.
“We’re happy to win, but collectively we are disappointed the way we shot the ball,” said Triad head coach Jason Malone. “I think we only made three shots outside of 15 feet tonight. We have to shoot better.”
What Triad (9-4) lacked in offensive firepower it made up for with effective defense. The Cardinals forced 35 turnovers on Monday.
“Defensively, we didn’t see what we wanted to out there from Riverside,” said Malone. “Riverside had some good looks early on and we had to switch our defense up. That helped and resulted in us getting most of our points in transition.”
