After a sluggish start Glasgow rallied in the second half to take the lead on Todd County Central before the Rebels ended the game on an 8-0 run to pull past the Scotties 55-53 Monday night in the first round of the Trinity Pepsi Shootout.

It was the first loss of the season for the Scotties (8-1), who defeated the Rebels 68-51 back on Dec. 9.

“I hate to lose, but we probably got what we deserved today,” Glasgow coach Jeff Hall said. “Give all the credit to Todd Central because they definitely deserved to win.”

Glasgow trailed 27-21 at the half before coming back to take the lead late in the third quarter. Michael Bradley’s basket tied the game at 39-39 with 1:44 left in the quarter before Cameron Hall’s jumper put the Scotties on top for the first time since the first quarter. Bradley added another bucket for a 43-39 lead. The Scotties led 43-40 heading into the fourth quarter.

Glasgow took a 47-42 lead on a layup and pair of free throws by Andrew Wade before Todd used a 5-0 spurt to knot the game at 47-47.

Wade’s long jumper with 3:03 left put Glasgow back on top, 49-47, and Cameron Hall’s score pushed the lead to four. Wade hit two free throws with just over a minute left as the Scotties took a 53-47 lead.

The Rebels (4-6) then roared back with a pair of 3-pointers, the second by Paul Lacy with 26 seconds left to tie the game. Lacy’s layup with three seconds was the game-winner and gave Todd the 55-53 win.

“We were in the bonus and just had to take care of the basketball,” coach Hall said. “We had a couple of miscues and they were able to capitalize on both of them. We forced them to miss the jump shot and they got the offensive rebound and putback. We were just about a half step slow on everything we did tonight.”

Cameron Hall led Glasgow with 15 points while Bradley added 13 and Wade scored 12.

Glasgow faces Frederick Fraize today at 6 p.m. in the final round of the tournament. Frederick Fraize (0-6) lost to the host school, Trinity Whitesville, by a 68-32 clip in Monday’s second game.

“We’ve got to be ready to get back to work tomorrow,” coach Hall said. “That’s the good thing about sports is that you usually don’t have to wait very long to get back at it again. We just have to show back up and be ready to work and correct the mistakes that we made today.”
