The Scottie boys faced the Harlem Wildcats at home and the Scobey Spartans on the road last week. On Feb. 2, Glasgow hosted Harlem in a senior night conference game at GHS. Feb. 4, the Scotties were in Scobey to take on the Spartans for a non-conference match-up.

Glasgow 49, Harlem 38

For the second time this season, the Scottie boys defeated the Wild Cats, claiming the win quarter-by-quarter.

The starting five for the Scotties were seniors Tyler Hersom, Brayden Ross, Luke Breigenzer and Trent Herbert. Completing the lineup was sophomore Cade Myrick. Coming off the bench to contribute offensively were Ellis McKean and Bryce Legare.

The Scotties' defense effectively prevented the Wild Cats from making any significant progress in the game, with just one player reaching double digits in the game.

For Glasgow, Myrick was the top scorer with 22 points, followed by Ross and Legare with 10 each.

Although the Wild Cats didn't get many opportunities at the charity stripe, they made use of the ones they did get, shooting 90 percent. In comparison, the Scotties completed just half of their attempts. With 11 rebounds, Myrick earned a double-double in the contest. Ross, Legare, and Herbert also made an impact defensively, grabbing a combined 16 off the boards.

Although the Scotties did get into some foul trouble, they all managed to stay in the game.

Scobey 69, Glasgow 51

On Saturday, Glasgow was in Scobey to face the scrappy Spartans in a non-conference game. The Scotties struggled the entire first half, scoring just 16 points to Scobey's 35. Glasgow returned to the court after the half and out-scored their opponent in both remaining quarters, but they were unable to come back from their low-scoring first half.

Myrick again led the team in scoring with 21 points, but was out-matched by Scobey's Kobe Ralston, who scored one-third of the Spartan's final 69 points.

For his second double-double of the weekend, Myrick also grabbed 10 rebounds, followed by Legare with five.

Opportunities at the charity stripe were few and far between for both teams, with just 17 total infractions called during the contest.

The Scotties will finish up their regular season this week as they travel to Malta on Thursday, Feb. 9 and to Wolf Point on Feb. 10.
