Raiders up 4-0 in a matter of seconds ... More from Stevens as Kenadi Rising is going to find Bailee Sobczak ... and Sobczak knocks down the baseline jumper as the Raiders are taking full control of this game early ... Now it's more Sobczak as she rips the board and gets the ball ahead to Rising ... who misses the jumper long ... but that turns into a nice pass as Jayda McNabb grabs the board and puts it right back in ... the Raiders jumped out to a 17-3 lead in this one and never looked back ... taking an 81-46 win ...
