Still untarnished

It’s a good kind of broken record. The R-P boys and girls, and the Chatfield girls, are still yet to taste defeat as the 2013 basketball season turns into the 2014 basketball season. It’s not much a surprise the R-P boys are undefeated (8-0 in the 3-Rivers, first place in the south, 11-0 overall, ranked #2 in Class A). Their latest victim was Wabasha-Kellogg. The Trojans had things under control at halftime (42-15) and cruised to a 72-44 victory. Senior Ryan Ruberg hit all four shots he took including three trifectas for a team-high 11 points (off the bench). He is now the seventh Trojan to lead (or co-lead) R-P in scoring in a game. Alex Vix and Charlie Krambeer each added 10. Jorli Hauge had 9 points and 7 rebounds. Of R-P’s 11 wins, only one is by less than 10 points (73-66 over Caledonia). Nine of the other 10 wins have been by at least 18 points. Seven have been by 30 points or more. They’ve reached 70 points in all but one game (Chatfield) this season. The Trojans’ female counterparts also stayed undefeated (6-0, 9-0) and tied for first, also downing W-K by a healthy margin (76-36). Senior Hope Morrison likes to play the Falcons. She hit a season-high five 3-pointers for a season high 19 points (four off her career-high of 23 set against W-K late last season). Brianna Koop (17 pts, 7-12 FGs, 3-3 FT’s, 10 rebs), Kendra Crawford (14 pts, 7 assists, 4 stls), and Keela Brand (11 pts) also reached double figures. Crawford has done so every game this season, the only female county player to do so. Koop has scored in double figures every game but one (had nine versus FC). The Trojan girls last six wins have been by an average of 37.8 points. Matching the R-P girls win-for-win are the 7th-ranked Chatfield Gophers (6-0, 9-0). They had things a little tougher against the team that vanquished them from the post-season last year, Cotter. Chatfield led the whole way including 31-22 at halftime, only for the Ramblers to close to down four with around five to play. But three-pointers by junior guards Kirsten Keefe and Maddy Larrabee pushed the lead back to ten. Chatfield got the win 56-45. Larrabee led the way with a career-high 16 (2-3 three’s, 4-5 FT’s). Keefe was solid all-around (9 pts, 5 rebs, 4 assists, 6 stls). To keep their records perfect, all three teams have big tests to pass in the very near future.
