CORRECTIONVILLE - Coach Dean Norris' River Valley Wolverines had an easy time of it in their first-round contest in the annual Maple Valley Conference Tournament, besting Whiting by a decisive 74-31 score here on Jan. 22, in a game postponed from Monday night, due to inclement weather.

The Wolverines showed excellent balance in their scoring, with five players scoring in double figures. Tyler Clark scored 18 points, Austin Hansen and Anthony Volkert 12 each, and Zach Hullinger and Ethan Todd 10 apiece.

Todd and Volkert each snared 10 rebounds, Pat Parcels had four steals, and Sam Lundt dished out four assists as the Wolverines had a complete team effort.

The RV boys jumped to a 19-11 first-quarter lead, and ballooned that to a 33-13 lead by limiting the Warriors to just two points in the entire second period. The Wolverines led 46-20 heading into the final frame.
