The trip to Milan is one of the longest for Scotland County basketball players, so it was fitting that the Tigers used a long-range attack to dominate the Wildcats on Friday night in a 79-60 victory.
The Tigers knocked down a season-high 11 three pointers on the night to put together their best scoring output of the year.
Sophomore Cordie Kigar connected from behind the arc three times in the first period as Scotland County built a 20-15 advantage.
Drew Miller matched the shooting performance, hitting a trip of three point shots in the second period as Scotland County exploded for 25 points to pull ahead 45-31 at the intermission.
Harley Stone gave the team a solid presence in the paint to balance the scoring. He had 10 points in the first half.
Kigar connected on two more from behind the arc in the third period and Stone added six more points as the Tigers maintained a 59-47 lead heading into the final eight minutes.
SCR-I kept the pressure on in the fourth quarter. Stone and Brock Bondurant combined for 12 points as the Tigers rolled to a 79-60 win.
Stone led all scorers with 22 points. Kigar finished with a career-high 20 points, including six three pointers. Miller connected four times from behind the arc to finish with 12 points and Andrew Mathes pitched in with 10 points.
Mason Clark topped Milan in scoring with 21 points and Cooper Bankus added 12 points.
The Tigers improved to 4-2 on the season with the victory.
