As the #1 seed taking on a junior varsity squad, Scotland County took care of business on Tuesday night in Shelbyville blasting Highland’s JV 66-18 in the tourney opener.
The Lady Tigers jumped out to a 22-0 lead in the first period as the junior Cougars struggled versus the full court press. SCR-I forced 45 turnovers on the night.
A pair of freshmen did plenty of damage for SCR-I in the opening frame as Hannah Feeney and Emiley Dial combined for 12 of SCR-I’s 22 points.
Kaylyn Anders and Katie Feeney combined for 12 points in the second period as SCR-I extended the lead to 41-4 at the intermission.
The duo scored back-to-back transition buckets to open the third period before Dial and Hannah Feeney closed out the quarter with six points to extend the lead to 56-8.
Kiley Bradley-Robinson scored six straight points to open the fourth quarter and SCR-I cruised to the 66-18 win.
The Tigers road a very balanced scoring attack to the victory. Micah Colley led all scorers with 15 points. Dial finished with 12 and Bradley-Robinson had 10. Hannah Feeney had nine points and also added seven assists and six steals. Khloe Hamlin recorded 10 steals to lead the Lady Tigers defensive efforts.
Scotland County improved to 8-4 with the win and advanced to the North Shelby Tournament semifinals.
