Lady Scotties walk over Jones County, 45-28
The Lady Scotties invited the Jones County Coyotes to a basketball game on Tuesday, February 5th. That invitation was to the Coyotes' own defeat.
The Scotties made the first basket. Within seconds the Coyotes made their own to tie the score. This was to be the only close part of the game. The Scotties used the low scoring first quarter to learn the abilities and weaknesses of their opponents. The other quarters were a steady walk-away by Philip.
