Rebels seniors Ally Bode and Brooke Wegge played their final home game on Thursday, February 23, at Willow River.

The Moose Lake/Willow River Rebels girls were toppled 53-19 by the undefeated 22-0 but unranked Rush City Tigers in Willow River on Thursday, February 23. The Tigers roared to a 34-4 halftime lead before their coach pulled back the reigns with Rush City out-scoring the Rebels only 19-15 in the second half.

Senior captain Ally Bode played her last game on her home court and led the Rebels with seven points before the MLWR reserves came in with 5:20 remaining and the game in running time. Bode ended the regular season with a 12.3 points per game average. Laura Walker had all four of the Rebels' first half points.

The Tigers went 3-for-13 (23 percent) outside the arc and 19-for-40 (48 percent) in the paint for an overall field goal rate of 22-for-53 (42 percent). MLWR was only 1-for-6 (17 percent) on three-pointers and just 6-for-33 (18 percent) on the inside game for an overall field goal rate of only 7-for-39 (18 percent). Rush City added 6-for-10 (60 percent) on free throws, while MLWR went 4-for-6 (67 percent).

The Rebels got out-rebounded only 29-20, but the Tigers tore down 12 offensive boards as compared to four offensive boards for MLWR. The Tigers took the take-aways at 14-5 and their very effective passing game yielded 17 assists as compared to four shares for MLWR. The Rebels lowered the lost possessions to 18, while Rush City did an excellent job taking care of the ball with only eight turnovers.
