"We opened it up with a big second-quarter highlighted by (junior guard) Kylen Kubas with back-to-back 3-pointers," Dickinson Trinity head coach Carter Fong said via email. "She has made big improvements this year. She used to be strictly a slasher, but has spent lots of time on her shot."
Kubas added another three in the third, during which the Titans netted 25 points.
Sophomore forward Abbey Kubas led all players with 18 points, while senior guard Bre Tessier added 17. Fourteen Titans put their feet on the hardwood as nine inked their names in the scoring column.

Dickinson Trinity went 9-for-14 at the free-throw line as Richardton-Taylor committed 13 fouls. On 15 Titan fouls, the Raiders hit 9 of 16 attempts from the charity stripe.
"To the credit of the Raiders, their players were aggressive and looked to score and gave us some trouble early," Fong said.
