The Smith-Cotton Tigers got a win and a measure of revenge Tuesday night in their home opener against Hickman.

The Tigers won, 61-54, to avenge their first-round district loss to the Kewpies at the close of last season.

S-C’s combo of Keoni Hale and Dante Scroggins was too much for the Kewpies to handle. Hale scored a game high 26 points and grabbed seven rebounds, while Scroggins added 21 points and 13 boards as the Tigers dominated their opponent on the glass for the fifth straight game. S-C watched an 18-point lead diminish to 10 late in the fourth quarter after Hickman’s Judante Sutton got hot from behind the arc; he finished with four three-pointers on the game and led his team in scoring with 21 points. But the Tigers settled in and controlled the clock to close out the game.

The 5-0 Tigers will travel to Nevada Friday night for their first West Central Conference game of the season.

In the JV contest, S-C lost to Hickman 43-40; Derek Gehlken and Zach Gwaltney each scoring 9. They will also play Friday at Nevada.
