Boys: The beat went on for the Reed boys basketball team Friday, but it didn’t come easy. When the dust settled, the Raiders came away with a 62-58 win over a spirited Douglas team that came into the contest with just one win on the season.
After trailing 38-24 early in the third quarter, Reed went on a 15-0 run to give them their first lead since early in the game. The Tigers didn’t go away easy and trailed 59-58, but that was as close as they would get. Reed finished the game with 20 steals to keep their record perfect at 9-0.
