Milan No Match For Potent Lady Tigers Attack
Pick your poison... That is what the Scotland County Lady Tigers are telling their opponents early in the 2010 basketball season as they have demonstrated plenty of viable scoring threats both on the perimeter and in the paint. It was again the case on Friday night as SCR-I just had too many weapons for Milan to stop.
Jamie Shaw dominated the paint as SCR-I jumped out to a 13-5 first quarter lead. The senior center had six points early in the contest. forcing Milan to start sagging on the interior defense.
That opened up the perimeter game. Ashley Tague canned a three pointer to close out the first period with the home team up by eight points.
Skyler Alderton took over from there. She drilled three straight three pointers to open the second period and Scotland County looked poised to blow the game open.
But Milan battled back and trimmed the deficit to 22-14 with 2:40 left in the first half.
Coach Jaryt Hunziker slowed the momentum with a timeout. The Lady Tigers came out of the stoppage and quickly moved the lead back to double digits and Tague scored twice in the paint followed up by a basket from Shaw that made it 28-16 heading into halftime.
Scotland County did not relent coming out of the locker room. Cali Holt got the scoring going with a fast break basket. Tague knocked down a pair of three pointers to help SCR-I outscore Milan 14-6 over the eight-minute stretch to build a 20 point cushion, 42-22 heading into the fourth period.
Aimee Dale converted an offensive rebound and Kiley Frazier hit a three pointer as the Lady Tigers depth shined down the stretch in the 49-28 victory.
Scotland County improved to 6-0 on the year behind 15 points from Tague. Shaw finished with 12 points and Alderton added 11 points as the lady Tigers moved to 2-0 in the Tri-Rivers Conference.
Milan (3-2, 1-1) was led in scoring by Jordan Dunlap with eight points.
