The Raiders put together about as complete an effort as you’ll see Tuesday in their second consecutive win. Tallon Fonda led the Raiders with a season-high 29 points and 11 rebounds, and Austin Parker added 21 points and 13 boards on a perfect 8-of-8 from the floor as Three Rivers shot 54.7 percent from the field in a 96-80 win over Southern Arkansas University Tech. “It was a good team effort. I knew those guys were good,” Three Rivers coach Gene Bess said. “... They had a pretty good record, and I knew that they were very athletic and have a good program, so I knew we’d have to play pretty well to beat them.” Parker’s 21 points were a season high and his 13 boards were one shy of his season-best.
