Ridgeview Bounces Back with Decisive Win in State 3rd Place Game

PEORIA -- The Ridgeview boys basketball team used a hot start - and just as strong of a finish - to capture the 1A 3rd place trophy Saturday in a 53-35 win over Forreston.

The Mustangs bounced back from Friday's loss to Brimfield nicely, outscoring Forreston 17-8 in the opening quarter.  They maintained control from there, shooting 4-of-8 (50%) from 3-point range.

William Tinsley led Ridgeview with 14 points, shooting 5-of-11 from the field, and 4-of-6 (66.7%) from 3PT.

The third place finish is the best in program history.
