New Run and Gun Offense Shoots Blanks In Tigers Home Opener

The ďrun and gunĒ offense in basketball is fun to watch, but just like any offensive scheme, it will have its off nights. Thatís what happened Thursday night in the home opener for the Scotland County varsity boys team. The Tigers debuted the new offense, but the gun was firing blanks, as SCR-I struggled through a brutal night of shooting, allowing Highland to take a 76-44 victory.

Greg Neagle scored in the paint to give SCR-I its only lead of the game 2-0. Highland (3-2) then went on a 12-0 run to build a double-digit bulge before Bryce Blomme broke the Tigers drought with a driving score. Chris Humes scored on an offensive rebound and added a pair of free throws but Highland held a 20-10 lead to end the first quarter.

Scotland County could not buy a basket in the second period. The Tigers went more than five minutes without a field goal as the Cougars advantage swelled to 40-15 with 3:05 left in the second period. Humes and Blomme hit back-to-back shots as the period elapsed to make the score 43-19 at the intermission.

Jared Shelley hit the teams first three pointer of the night to open the third period. He followed it up with a driving move to the hoop for two points. Chris Holt gave the team a boost with six points in the quarter. The Cougars still maintained a 71-34 lead.

Shelley and Dustin Roach hit three pointers in the fourth period but it wasnít enough as Highland cruised to the easy win.

Chase Meyer had 17 points to lead all scorers. Scotland County (0-2) was led in scoring by Shelley with 10 points. Humes finished with nine and Neagle and Holt each had six.
