30-Point Club

Please forgive the Point Guard if he misses anyone here. Sometimes it’s difficult to spring back from vacation without a hiccup.

Over the past two weeks, the PG accounted for four different players hitting 30 points.

Bringing back a name from 30-Point Club past, Timmy Knipp saw one of his scoring records fall in the Raceland Derby Classic. Lewis County’s Brett Ruckel notched an eye-popping 40 points in a loss to Raceland, setting a single-game mark in the eighth annual tournament. The previous high was Knipp’s 38.

Ruckel also tallied 30 — 31, to be exact — in a close loss to Ryle this past week.

Russell’s Kyle Skaggs is averaging right at 30 points per game on the year. He tossed in 35 in an agonizing two-point loss to Harrison County. He later put in 30 against South Laurel in the AIT.

Russell classmate Hope Parsley netted 32 points in a Lady Devils’ defeat of Central Hardin.

Rose Hill’s Myriah Porter logged a career-high 33 points when the Lady Royals trounced Glenwood.
