Lady Tigers Heat It Up In Courtwarming Win

Spectators obviously were a little warm Friday night as a packed house was on hand to help cheer Scotland County on in the schoolís Courtwarming basketball games February 10th in Memphis.

Normally one would blame the high temperatures on the crowd itself, but knowledgeable basketball fans knew where to point the finger. The Lady Tigers were to blame for the heat as SCR-I was simply on fire all night in the 56-26 victory over Knox County.

ďIím not sure what our field goal percentage was tonight, but we definitely shot the ball extremely well this evening,Ē said Coach Kelli Swearingen.

Early on, it was senior Ali Fromm that took the blame for the heat. She erupted for 14 first-period points, including four three pointers as Scotland County jumped out to a 22-6 advantage.

Despite the big lead, the team did not let up on defense. SCR-I clamped down on Knox Countyís top scoring threat, Stephanie Hicks. The Eaglesí center did not score a point in the second period. That allowed SCR-I to expand its lead to 32-11 at the break.

The intermission did little to cool off the hot shooting of the Lady Tigers. Sophomore Jessica Bair hit a couple of jumpers from the wing to start the third quarter. Jamie Fuller nailed a trey as well as a deep jumper as the team demonstrated excellent ball movement en route to 16 points in the quarter.

ďJessica played a really good game tonight, not only shooting the ball but rebounding and on defense in particularĒ Swearingen said. ďI think overall, we just have begun to play with a lot more confidence.Ē

Kellyn Wickert converted a three-point play and Fuller hit another three pointer in the fourth period to help close out the 56-26 victory.

Fromm finished the night with 21 points to lead all scorers. Bair had 10 points and Angie Bulen had nine points while Fuller finished with eight. Scotland County moved to 14-8 on the year and 4-1 in the Tri-Rivers Conference.

Hicks led Knox County (5-13, 1-3) with 12 points.
