Scotties upset Trojans

GLASGOW — If there were ever any questions about how balanced the 15th District is in boys’ basketball this season, all of those questions should have been answered Friday night.

The Glasgow High School Scotties jumped on top of archrival and district powerhouse Barren County early in Friday’s contest and they kept the pedal to the floor as they rolled to a 64-51 victory.

“I thought all of the kids had good games tonight,” said Glasgow coach John Tinsley. “Steely Harris played well. Quentel Bradley played well, Ryne (Tinsley), Trey (Tinsley), Milas Norris, everyone played well tonight. And I thought Thomas Kingery really played big for us tonight. He has been an integral part of this team all year.

“But listen, this is just one game. It is a big game for us because it puts us in a better position in the district. However, we’ve got to go over to Monroe County on Tuesday and play with a purpose.”

Glasgow seemed to play with purpose Friday as the Scotties frustrated Barren County for most of the night with a swarming zone defense which created some turnovers and easy buckets in transition.

“Their zone wasn’t a surprise,” said Barren County coach Warren Cunningham. “It was something we prepared for and something we thought we might see tonight.”

The game was back and forth early as the Scotties took the lead in the first period, claiming a 13-11 advantage at the end of the quarter. Glasgow outscored Barren County 15-12 in the second period and held a 28-23 lead at the intermission.
