East Troy's hot first-half shooting performance was too much for Janesville Craig to overcome Monday night.

The Trojans made seven of their 11 3-pointers in the opening 18 minutes to build a big early lead and race to an 81-67 victory in a nonconference boys basketball game.

Four different players made at least one 3 in the first half, when East Troy built a 43-25 lead by the break.

Ryan Nixon led the Trojans with 25 points, while Chase Cummings added 21, including three 3s.

Angelo Rizzo led the Cougars (0-2) with 17 points.

Craig plays at Beaver Dam on Tuesday night.
