Josh Raley, who scored nine points on the night, hit a three-point shot for the game’s first basket, but the Little Muskies would go 0-11 from the three-point range for the remainder of the game.

Despite a sub-par shooting performance, John Glenn improved to 6-1 in MVL play. Tri-Valley has one more league win, now 7-1 after their loss to Sheridan on Tuesday night.

Casey Smith lead John Glenn in scoring with 10 points.

The Little Muskies are back in action on Friday when they travel to Maysville to take on the Panthers.
