Scott shows leadership

By Jesse Osbourne

The Lebanon Lancers took out the Harrodsburg Tankers, a first year team in the Kentucky Basketball Development League, by a score of 104-85 at the Roby Dome on Friday night.

Head Coach Mark Bell said Elton Scott was a leader by example.

"It was probably his best game since he started this year," he said. "Once we put two whole halves together we'll be all right."

The Lancers trounced the first year team that is playing without a coach right now.

"They played good for their first year," Bell said. "They didn't just lie down. They'll be all right once they get a coach. The experience played out (Friday) night. They fought hard. They got within three with seven minutes left. My guys, once we get in shape, we'll be all right."

Bell said he was doing everything he could to help the Tankers find a coach.

"Unfortunately, I can't coach both teams. They have a GM that's doing all he can. They need a coach that cares about the game and can travel on weekends," Bell said.

Scott led all scorers with 28 points. Petie Spalding finished with 24 points while Marlis Scott added 17. Mitchell Hughes added 12 points. Chad Embry chipped in with eight points and Mark Graham finished with five. Andy Rucker had three points. Jute Bell, Ashley Wren, Shay Epps and William Pendygrast finished with two points apiece. Every Lancer in the book scored in the romp.

The Lancers travel to Harrodsburg to play the Tankers at 7 p.m. next Friday night. The Lancers are currently 2-1 on the season.
