Gerber, who was 3-for-5 from three-point range, also contributed five rebounds and four steals. She shared the team lead in steals with Brittany Schaller and Sam Yancy. The Tigers had an impressive 18 steals.

The Tigers, who bounced back well after a disappointing 40-29 loss to Valders Thursday night, improved to 2-1. The Zephyrs dropped to 2-1 on the season.

“I thought we bounced back well after the loss last week. The defense was pretty solid all game and we rebounded well. We struggled in the first half to finish some shots but shot 50 percent overall from the field for the game,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“Addi Gerber had a very complete game. She shot the ball well and played an outstanding defensive game.

“She’s a triple-threat on offense. She can beat you off the dribble, shoot from the three or post you up. I’d love to see her keep playing like she did last night,” said Georgeff.

“Brittany Schaller passed well and found her shot after struggling in the last game. She finished shooting 8-for-11 from the field.

“Taylor Bublolz was a spark off the bench for us – chipping in 11 points in the paint. She’s given us a much-needed boost in bench production,” said the Tiger coach.

Abbi Thelen led the Zephyrs’ offense with 13 points, including three three-point goals.
