The Highland Scotties got back to their winning ways on Wednesday night by taking down the Labette Cardinals 73-68 at Ben Allen Field House.
The Scotties have lost their last two games, but they found a way to win tonight against a Labette team that would not give up. Highland never trailed Labette for the entire game, even leading by as much as 20 points in the second half. Labette, led by Jermond Mosley, slowly cut away at the Scotties lead but could not find a way to draw equal to Highland before the end of the second half.
Scottie sophomore, Zyon Smith offered his usual outstanding performance (19 points, 40 percent from the 3-point arc) but it was sophomore, Denzel Knight coming off the bench who came up huge during the second half for the Scotties. Knight finished the evening with 19 points and 7 rebounds, while shooting 75 percent from the floor.
Sophomore, Dillon Dellatte gave a strong outing for the Scotties tonight adding 13 points and 11 rebounds for the only double/double of the evening.
