    The hiatus was over as the Trimble County Raiders returned to the court for its season opener Monday night against the Grant County Braves. However, it wasn’t the home opener the Raiders hoped for as Grant County’s offense outpaced the team much of the night, with a 93-52 loss at the final buzzer.
