FEBRUARY 7, 2017 - COVINGTON
When you have a poor shooting night against a very good basketball team, it makes for a long evening.

And that's what happened to the Covington Buccaneers on Tuesday in a 64-38 loss to Tri-Village, which drops Covington's record to 9-9 on the season and 6-4 in the CCC.

The shooting struggles began from the outset as Tri-Village surged to a 19-8 lead after one and a 33-18 lead at the break. The Buccaneers converted on just two first half treys and five shot attempts from inside the three-point line.

Things didn't get any better for the Buccs in the second half as Tri-Village built a 44-26 lead after three and extended the margin to 64-38 by game's end.

The Buccaneers did manage three second half treys with two coming in the final minute of the contest.

From inside the three-point line, the Buccaneers managed to only connect on two additional buckets in the second half.

The remaining second half points came on seven of eight free throws. Covington converted on 9 of 12 free throws for the game.

For Tri-Village, 30 of its points came on two-point buckets - a 15-7 advantage in the contest.

The Patriots converted on nine three-pointers and made seven of nine free throws.

Covington was led in scoring by Trevor Miller, who had 11 points on the night. Nathan Blei had nine and Jett Murphy scored eight.

Gavin Richards led Tri-Village with a game-high 21 points with 15 of those coming on five treys. Tyler Couch contributed with 17 points for the Patriots.

Covington, which has dropped four of its last five games, looks to get back to its winning ways on Friday at rival Newton. The two teams played earlier in the season with Covington claiming a 62-45 win in the first game ever on the new home floor.
