Basketball: Royal girls lose to Tigers 47-40 in M8 finale

The Rogers Royals lost their regular-season finale to the Princeton Tigers 47-40 on Friday evening.


The Royals, who beat Princeton 56-44 earlier in the year, finished 6-10 in the Mississippi 8, tying for fifth place.


“An off-night shooting dashed our hopes,” said coach ┬áJeremy Digiovanni. “We were an ice cold 25 percent from the floor against Princeton.”

The much taller Tigers also outrebounded the Royals decisively.

Rogers will take a 12-14 overall record into Section 5AA starting Tuesday. The Royals were seeded second and will host No. 7 Dassel-Cokato.


Mariah Clarin tallied 16 points and Kadie Savage and Becca Haas 13 each for Princeton, 5-11 in conference and 10-15 overall.


Emily Reichert and Jordyn Motter sank 11 points each for Rogers.
