A pair of winnable games against good teams slipped away from host Russellville in the Class A Fourth Region Tournament Wednesday and Thursday.
The Lady Panthers spotted the Glasgow girls a huge lead and couldn't quite recover Wednesday. The Panthers got off to a great start, stumbled in the middle of the game, caught up and then lost by three points.
Glasgow not only advanced to Friday's championship games but got to play them at home with both Russellville teams eliminated. The Scotties and Lady Scotties both won and are headed to the state Class A Classic at Eastern Kentucky University this week.

Glasgow 53, Panthers 50

Russellville started strong, behind a pair of 3-pointers by Trevor Clark from the same angle that he had hit the game-winner a few days earlier at Logan County. The Panther lead was 14-9 after a quarter.
Devonta Bryant's rebound shot raised the lead to 16-9, and the Panthers seemed ready to blow the visitors out. Instead the Scotties scored 12 of the game's next 13 points before Victor Hampton got a shot to fall for the Panthers on an assist from Damien Elam. Glasgow led 24-21 at the half.

The Scotties built a 31-23 lead on a 3-pointer by highly regarded guard Cameron Hall, but baskets by Elam, Hampton and Clark cut the lead to two. Glasgow led 38-35 as the third quarter ended.

Russellville regained the lead twice, at 40-39 on foul shots by Elam and 41-40 on a free throw by Kevin Temple. The final tie came at 43-43 on a basket by D.J. Quarles, assisted by Bryant with 3:50 remaining.
Rebound buckets by Parker Cash and Karrington Bradley gave the Scotties a 49-43 lead with 1:49, but Elam put together a 3-pointer, and Temple hit a free throw. After Hall's foul shots made it 51-47, Quarles hit a 3-pointer with 22.6 seconds to cut the margin to one.
Russellville had a chance to win when Glasgow's Dean Glass missed a pair of free throws with 10.7 seconds left, but Hampton and Elam missed close in shots, seeming to get entangled with each other, and Glasgow survived.

Quarles was Russellville's only double-figure scorer with 13 points along with 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Clark had 8 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocked shots. Elam added 7 points 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
By switching up quicker defenders on him, the Panthers held Hall to 18 points, about two-thirds of his average. Cash scored 10 points and had 8 rebounds while Michael Bradley added 8 points and 11 boards.
The Panthers didn't shoot well, hitting just a third of their shots, They were 10 of 15 at the line and 4 of 17 on 3-pointers. Glasgow, however, was an atrocious 9 of 23 at the foul line.
