RIDDLE — The Riddle boys basketball team continued to roll as it remained undefeated through 13 games so far this season. The Irish beat Glide, 72-41, Saturday night in a nonleague game.

Nate Hopkins led the ninth-ranked Irish (13-0, 3-0 Skyline South) with 29 points, while Dylan McFadden had 12 points.

Senior post Dillon Towne had 18 points for Glide (7-6, 1-2 SCL), but dealt with foul trouble throughout the game before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

"Dillon Towne picked up his fourth foul in the third quarter. Without him in the game, they couldn't get into their offense and we took advantage of that foul trouble," Riddle coach Russell Hobson said. "We got some steals and transition buckets. It was over once we got going. I was proud of them, especially in the second half as they executed at a high level."

Riddle led 35-29 at halftime before outscoring the Wildcats 23-7 in the third quarter.

Glide plays Canyonville Academy on Tuesday. Riddle visits Glendale Tuesday.
