Tyler Portwood and Richie Phares came off the bench to combine for 29 points to lead Scott County to a hard-earned 73-68 victory over Mason County.  Scott County raced out to a 16-5 first quarter lead but the combination of a determined Mason County team and a combined 10 of 33 from the field by star Scott County guards Bud Mackey and Matt Walls kept the game close.  Mason County actually tied the score 36-36 in the third quarter and trailed 69-66 with approximately 20 seconds left in the game, but could not catch the Cardinals.
