Reed's Leilani Young hit the second of her eight 3-pointers at the 2:32 mark of the first period and it gave the Raiders a 23-2 lead.
"We always want to come out strong and set the tempo. I thought our starters did that," Reed coach Sara Schopper said. "They got the tempo going and when that happens our shots fall. It just seems easier for us."
North Valleys scored the next eight points, a run capped by a Brenda Robledo layup. The visiting Panthers were never as close as that 13-point margin again. Reed closed out the initial period with back-to-back three-point bombs by Young and Erica McKenzie. The deep balls saw the Raiders hold a 29-10 edge at the conclusion of the first eight minutes.
Young finished with a team-high 24 points, all on the strength of her eight treys.
"She's making a conscious effort to get her feet set and shoot," Schopper said. "When we put her on the same side as Danielle (Peacon) and Erica (McKenzie) people tend to focus on them, so she can get some good looks. Leilani knows she has the green light."
Reed pushed its lead to 34-10 less than two minutes into the second period after a McKenzie runner through the lane. North Valleys scored the next six points, trimming Reed's lead to 34-16 with 5:22 still left before halftime.
The Panthers were able to keep the gap at 18 points over the next two minutes. However, they could get no closer as the Raiders reeled off an 11-1 run to conclude the second quarter. The outburst left Reed with a 49-21 halftime advantage.
The Reed offense never really slowed. After the 20-point second period, the Raiders put up 20 more points in the third period.
Young's final three of the contest came with 22 seconds to go in the third quarter. It gave the hosts a 69-34 lead. The 35-point lead was Reed's largest of the night.
"I thought the subs came in and took care of the ball," Schopper said. "I wanted to get the young kids some confidence. I thought they did."
In addition to Young's big night, Reed also got 14 and 13 points from Peacon and McKenzie respectively.
Shakia Walker scored 17 points to lead North Valleys.
"I thought Shakia was hard to guard at times and we gave up too many second-chance points. We've got things we still need to work on," Schopper said.
North Valleys did not play dead in the final quarter. The Panthers outscored a lineup comprised mostly of Reed reserves, 19-10, in the last period.
Panthers post Laynie Icard pulled down a rebound and went coast to coast for a layup that trimmed Reed's lead to 22 points, 75-53, with just over two minutes left in the game. That was the closest North Valleys could get after halftime.
Reed improved to 8-5 overall and 3-1 in conference clashes with the Friday's romp. The RHS hoopsters play at Hug today at 3:15 p.m.
