Boys Leapfrog Up Conference Standings With Win Over Knox

The Scotland County Tigers leapfrogged up the conference standings with a pair of victories in Tri-Rivers Conference play. SCR-I completed the two-game spurt with a 47-36 victory over Knox County in Memphis on February 10th.

Chris Humes got the Tigers off to a quick start, scoring five straight points to open the first period. Knox County rallied to lead 8-6 at the end of the first quarter.

The Tigers took control of the contest in the second period. Bryce Blomme scored seven points as the Tigers outscored the Eagles 15-5 to lead 21-13 at the intermission.

Matt Wickert put the game away in the third period. He poured in 10 of his teamís 12 points to extend the margin to 33-19.

The two teams opened up the offense in the fourth period, but it was too little, too late for Knox County despite some shaky free throw shooting by SCR-I. The Tigers made just four-of-12 from the charity stripe in the gameís final eight minutes.
