Highland Park’s boys basketball team remained unbeaten with a 73-70 home win over Richardson last Tuesday. The Scots trailed the Eagles by 2 at halftime, but came out strong in the third quarter with a 23-11 scoring advantage to take the lead, which they never relinquished.
Evan Beucler and Clayton Murtha paced the Scot scoring with 24 and 23 points, respectively. Derek Cahn added an additional 18 points.
Both teams made eight 3-point shots, with the visitors making more regulation baskets. The difference in the game came down to foul shots, with the Scots sinking 17 to the opponents’ 10.
Highland Park will host McKinney at about 8 o’clock this evening as part of a girls-boys doubleheader.
