Girls BB - Colby topples SCHS
Updated: Jan 12, 2020
In a battle of two Top 10 girls basketball teams, who look to battle it out for the rest of the season in the Great West Activities Conference, the Colby Eagles managed to soar in Scott City, although the host Beavers nearly rained on their parade.
Brynn McCormick scored a career-high 31 points for Scott Community, but it wasn't enough to bring her teal all the way back, as Class 3A No. 7 Colby held on for a 52-49 win at the Scott Community Events Center.
McCormick made seven three-pointers to buoy No. 3 Scott Community (6-1), and the Beavers held the Eagles (8-0) to just one field goal in the fourth quarter, however a turnover on the game's final play sealed the win for the visitors.
Jill Stephens paced the Eagles with 15 points, while Brittany Foss added 13 and Hollie Vaughn chipped in with 11 points. Colby out-rebounded Scott Community, 31-19, and converted on 12-of-18 foul shots for the game, while the Beavers were limited to just five free throws, making four of them - all of which were taken by McCormick.
