Scotties handle Greyhound men by 18 points

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Fort Scott Community College's men came out with hustle at Arnold Arena Wednesday night. Unfortunately, visiting Highland came ready to shoot the roof off the building, posting an early 12-point lead with the aid of four 3-point goals and going on to a 69-51 victory in Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division play.

De'Andre Upchurch and Roderick Camphor made five of their combined eight 3-pointers in the first half of play, leading Highland on a 16-0 run right after Desean Miles and Derrick Thomas had scored the game's first 4 points for the Greyhounds (1-4 East, 2-15 overall).

Julian Mills brought Fort Scott within 21-15 with 7:02 to go in the half by making a layup and a 3-point shot. But the Scotties (4-1, 10-6) scored the next 13 and 20 of the final 23 of the half to go into the locker room up 41-18.

A 13-2 run early in the second half boosted the Scotties' lead to 56-27 with 12:53 remaining. The 'Hounds had a late 10-0 run capped by a pair of Tony McGilveary scored to bring Fort Scott within 64-47 with 3:09 to go.

McGilveary led Fort Scott with 14 points and Danner added 11. Upchurch scored 20 for Highland and Camphor finished with 16.

Fort Scott outrebounded Highland 46-40. Maurice Fields hauled down 10 boards for the 'Hounds.

Fort Scott turned the ball over 21 times to just 11 for Highland.

The Greyhounds will play at Neosho County Saturday night. Tip off will be at 8 p.m.
