A three-point game at halftime turned into a blowout in the fourth period as Canton outscored Scotland County 34-18 in the final 16 minutes of Tuesday night's game in Memphis en route to the 58-39 victory.

The Tigers kept pace early. Harley Stone had six points in the first period and Jacob Blessing and Cordie Kigar added three pointers to keep SCR-I within a bucket at 14-12.

Kigar connected from distance again in the second period and Stone, Andrew Mathes and Lucas Howard added buckets for the Tigers, who trailed 24-21 at halftime.

Drew Miller scored all eight of his points in the third period, but it wasn't enough to prevent Canton from extending the lead to 42-32 at the end of three periods of play.
