Beloit Turner’s girls basketball team wasn’t fazed by a last-minute change of venue Monday.

The Trojans bolted out to a 19-0 lead and cruised to a 55-32 nonconference win over Parkview in Orfordville.

The game was moved to Parkview because of a leak in Turner High’s gym roof, according to a release by Turner athletic director Andy Coldren.

Carson Nitz scored 17 points to lead the Trojans (9-6), who led 33-9 at halftime.

Amber Hudson paced Parkview with 14 points. The Vikings are averaging 34.4 points in their last five games.

“Starting off like that doesn’t help your cause,” Parkview coach Chad Smith said of his team’s early deficit Monday. “We’re sputtering offensively right now.”
