With Junior Guard Hunter Yager Out Of The Game Due To Foul Trouble, Faurot Took Over The Game Offensively. “we Talk To Guys About Understanding The Game And Situations. Marshall Stepped Up And He Kept Us In The Game,” Gentry Says. Key Second Quarter

Scott Community High School head coach Brian Gentry has emphasized to his team that it won’t find success by settling for the easy shot.

During the first half of Friday’s season opener, the Beavers settled and as a result they held only a 28-25 halftime lead over Wichita County.

That didn’t happen in the second half as SCHS pulled away to a 68-49 non-league win.

“In the first half we settled . . . we settled for average shots we can get all the time,” explained Gentry. “In the second half our ball movement was better and we did a better job of attacking the basket.”

“The final score was no indication of how tight the game was for a little more than two quarters.

Neither team had more than a three point lead in the first 16 minutes and there were six lead changes.

SCHS didn’t own its first lead of the game until a basket by senior Marshall Faurot put the Beavers on top 8-7.
