Ritchie Middle School opened fast and then let A. J. Collins do the rest as it posted an 86-20 victory over visiting Calhoun Tuesday night.
The Knights jumped to a 19-1 first quarter lead and never really looked back as it moved to 1-0 on the season.
Ironically Collins, who led the team with 30 points was that big of a factor in the first period with only four points. He only had six at halftime but in the second half he went wild with 24 of his game high total.
Travis Pickering added 11 while Dylan Beall, Shane Davis and Shawn Spencerall had 10 as the Knights placed five players in double figures.
Jackson Taylor led Calhoun with 10 while Zach Yanero added four, Jerry Jones three and Trevor Carder and Chris Thornton two each. Christopher Kirkland, Ben Fredrick and Sonny Wilson all played but fif not score.
Ritchie won the B game 58-4.
Connor Ensminger led Ritchie with 13 while Joshua Brannon added 11 and Chase Sullivan 10.
