In the second game Wednesday night of the Columbia Tip Off classic Alton Marquette played Triad. It was a tight game going back and forth. Triad was up 4 at half and down 2 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Alton Marquette was able to carve out a 4 point lead with about 2 minutes left, but did not score again. Triad finished on a 6 run to take the win 45-43.

  • An old lesson was re- learned in this game. Free throws win games. Triad was 17/21 in the second half and 22/30 for the game. Alton Marquette was 0/4 in the second half and 4/15 for the game. Heather Rood came back from a knee injury that sidelined her at mid season last year to go 11/15 from the line. Ali Barisch, who led Triad in scoring in Rood's absence last year went 8/10 from the line. Triad made 2 field goals in the 3rd quarter and 2 in the 4th. In the end, that was all they needed because they converted at the free throw lne.
  • Another lesson you hear when you are around this game is that guards, and especially experienced guards, win games. Barisch and Rood proved this theory
