You might expect a little rust after a couple weeks without a game, but if Scotland County was bothered by the layoff it didn't show on Monday night in Brashear as the Tigers cruised to a 77-26 victory.

Brice Cowell and Lucas Howard did the heavy lifting early on. Howard had six points and Cowell had nine points in the first period as Scotland County jumped out to a 19-7 lead.

The Tigers put the game away in the second period, pouring in 24 points. Cowell continued to lead the scoring, accounting for eight points during the key run. Bailey Johnston added five points. Howard and William McRobert each added a pair of field goals that helped extend the lead to 43-22 at the intermission.

Scotland County found the range from long distance in the third period. Cordie Kigar knocked down a pair of three-pointers and Jacob Blessing also connected from behind the arc. Kyler Burkhiser and Howard each added a pair of field goals as SCR-I erupted for 25 points making the lead 68-26 with just eight minutes to play.

Even with a running clock the entire fourth quarter, SCR-I's offense kept churning, ultimately posting the 677-26 victory.

Cowell led all scorers with 19 points as the Tigers improved to 5-6 on the season. Howard added 14 points and McRobert and Kigar each chipped in with 10 points.
