Scotties beat Whitley Co. in double OT

GLASGOW — The Glasgow High School Scotties finished a run of five games in four days Monday night by beating Whitley County 70-65 in double overtime to finish third in the Arby’s/KFC Holiday Classic at McCreary Central High School in Stearns.

“It was a great effort from the kids,” said Glasgow coach John Tinsley.

“To play fives games in four days (and play this well), showed a lot of guts and determination. I think this proved we can play tired. We showed a lot of mental toughness.”

The two teams battled back and forth early in the game with the score tied at 15 at the end of the first period. Whitley County took a one-point advantage in the second quarter to lead 31-30 at the intermission.

Glasgow outscored Whitley County 13-8 in the third period to lead 43-39 as the fourth quarter began. However, WCHS came roaring back and actually took the lead in the fourth quarter before the Scotties rallied  to tie the game at 54-54 to send it to overtime.

Glasgow trailed in the first overtime period, but Quentel Bradley hit a 3-pointer with eight seconds to go to send the game into double overtime, tied at 60-60.

“In the second overtime, we took care of the basketball,” said Tinsley.

Bradley led Glasgow with 20 points on the night. Milas Norris had 16 and Connor Glass scored 12. Anthony Walker tallied 11 points with Julius Shirley scoring five, Jacob Poynter getting four and Nelson Glass scoring two.

“Connor Glass had a great defensive effort tonight,” said Tinsley. “He’s proving to be a great leader for us and he’s playing really hard.”

The Scotties got to the third place game by beating McCreary Central 82-68 in the second round of play Sunday. Shirley had a good game for the Scotties, scoring eight points but also pulling down 14 rebounds.

As a team, the Scotties scored 31 points in the fourth quarter against McCreary Central. Glasgow hit 17 of 19 free throws in the period.
