SCR-I Scorches the Nets For 79 Points in Return From Break
A running clock in the fourth period may have been the only thing that kept Scotland County from breaking the century mark in its first return to hoops action following Christmas break. The Tigers singed the nets on Tuesday night in Queen City to the tune of 79 points in a 30-point victory over Schuyler County.
Cordie Kigar had the range from behind the arc early on. The SCR-I senior canned three, three-pointers in the game's opening minutes as SCR-I built a 24-10 lead. Bailey Johnston and Lucas Howard combined for 10 points to give the Tigers a balance inside-outside scoring threat.
Kigar continued to have the hot hand in the second period, finding the range for a pair of three pointers. Howard had eight points in the paint while Jade Holt, Jacob Hull and Aaron Buford all added field goals as the rout was on. SCR-I led 47-19 at the intermission.
The points poured in, in the third period as well. Brice Cowell had six points and Howard and Zach Doubet each had five points in the eight-minute stretch that saw the SCR-I lead bulge to 70-36.
The clock did not stop in the fourth period, but SCR-I still managed nine points to post the 79-49 victory.
Kigar led all scorers with 22 points while Howard finished with 19 to help Scotland County improve to 5-3 on the season and 3-1 in the Tri-Rivers Conference. Johnston finished with 10 points and Cowell added nine for the Tigers.
