Eagles Extend SCR-Is Losing Streak to 11 Games With 64-48 Defeat

The Tigers looked poised to put a damper on the Courtwarming celebrations at Knox County High School on Friday night but a bad fourth quarter kept SCR-I from raining on their rivals parade.

The Eagles did some raining of their own, from behind the arc. Knox County opened the game with a barrage of three pointers to jump on top 20-16 at the end of the first period.

Jacob Howard kept the Tigers close, scoring 10 points in the opening frame as Scotland County was able to beat the Eagles pressure defense and produce easy scoring opportunities in the paint.

SCR-I continued its success to start the second period. Kyle Shelley and Harley Stone scored on the fast break. Shelley then brought the SCR-I faithful to their feet. He blocked a Dennis Dent shot on defensive and then was rewarded on the other end, scoring on the fastbreak to pull his team within 23-22 and force a Knox County timeout with 5:33 to play in the first half.

But Howard was whistled for his third foul on the next possession, taking some of the wind out of Scotland Countys sails. Shelley picked up the scoring slack, scoring eight points in the second period to keep the Tigers close. Knox County led 32-27 at the break.

The two teams traded buckets for much of the third period. Howard scored on an offensive rebound and Brandon Garnett had a pair of buckets to keep the Tigers within striking distance.

Scotland County held Dennis Dent to just two free throws in the third period. But turnovers on offense kept the Tigers from taking advantage of the solid defensive effort. Knox County pulled ahead 46-37 at the end of three quarters.

The margin grew to 13 points early in the fourth period as Knox County capitalized on several more SCR-I turnovers. Shelley finally got the Tigers on the board in the final period when he scored in the paint with 5:04 on the clock to make it 50-39.

Shelley and Garnett combined for all 11 fourth quarter points for the Tigers but it wasnt enough as Knox County went on to the 64-48 Tri-Rivers Conference win.

Scotland County dropped its 11th straight game to fall to 2-13 on the year and 0-1 in conference play. Garnett and Shelley each had 16 points to lead SCR-I and Howard finished with 12 points.

Dent led Knox County (7-4, 2-1) with 23 points.
