The Indians led 27-6 midway through the second period before Howard hit back-to-back buckets. Kyle Shelley hit a shot at the buzzer to make it 35-12 at the intermission.
Derrick Muntz and Brandon Garnett got into the scorebook with buckets in the third period but that was all the scoring for SCR-I, which fell behind 52-16 with eight minutes left to play.
Scotland County picked up the scoring in the final period, putting up 11 points despite the running clock that shortened the opportunities. Drew Miller opened the scoring with a basket. Dakota Wells connected on a three pointer. Kyle Shelley had a couple buckets before Harley Stone closed out the night with a bucket to make the final score 57-27.
Howard scored seven points in limited action to lead Scotland County (5-16, 0-4). Shelley finished with six points.
