The Monmouth-Roseville Lady Titans received a few votes in the first IHSA Class 2A basketball poll of the season and showed why in their TRAC West game with the Lady Panthers on Monday.
Sydney Schwartz hit her first two 3-point shots of the contest to give the Panthers a quick 6-0 advantage, but that would end up being the highlight of the night as the Titans demolished the young Panthers 56-20.
EP trailed 38-12 at half and 50-15 after the third quarter. A running clock and the Titans clearing the bench in the fourth quarter made the final eight minutes competitive.
M-R used a full court press and a big height advantage to put the game out of reach early.
The F/S also took a loss 36-27. Kaelyn Sibley had 10 for the Panthers with Gabi Abell adding 8.
The Panthers will host Sherrard on Thursday in Erie.
