Top seed Rogers put 16th seed Tiverton away in the second half to win 51-38. This ends Tiverton’s season whereas Rogers moved on to play the winner of Prout vs. West Warwick on Saturday. The score was almost identical to the 50-38 loss to Moses Brown that closed Tiverton’s season last year, also in the first round.
After opening Tuesday’s game on a 14-0 tear, Rogers was able to build on that lead in the early going. But the Tigers clawed back into the game and was able to go into the half-time break down 22-14.
Tiverton managed a few runs in the second half, aided by their three-point shooting. At one point, the Tigers were able to close the deficit to seven points, but in the end Rogers had too much talent for the Tigers to handle and finished the game going away.
Senior Mariah Caldwell led Tiverton scorers with eight points.
