SPARTA — A 15-3 second-quarter run was the boost that the Highland Scots needed on Tuesday. The second place Scots (11-5, 8-3 KMAC) kept within mathematical reach of the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference crown, by taking down the improving Fredericktown Freddies (5-10, 3-7 KMAC), 64-52.

With the game tied at 14 in the second quarter, the Scots surged ahead with a 15-3 run. Highland’s Chris Branham (13 points) scored three baskets and found Andrew Wheeler (10 points) and Mack Anglin (17 points) with assists.

“We broke it open and that was huge,” said Highland coach Chris Powell. “We made a 19-5 gallop into halftime. We were making shots — That’s for sure. We’ll take every, little bit of mojo, going into halves.”
