CLINTON — Rancey Skaggs put on a clinic from behind the arc as Hickman County roared back from a 22-point halftime deficit to stop Paducah Tilghman 60-57 in girls high school basketball from Monday night.

The Lady Tornado pressed quickly and forced several turnovers from their hosts in the first half. The Lady Falcons trailed 39-17 before scoring the final four points of the first half. After the break, Hickman settled and turned up the pressure on Tilghman for a 24-7 run through the third that flipped the game completely. Hickman sealed the win in the fourth by hitting each of its six free throws.

Skaggs sank six 3-pointers in leading the Lady Falcons with 27 points. Kady Wilked added 12 points to the Hickman tally while Bayleigh Basch also hit two form downtown. Diamond Gray produced a third of the Lady Tornado offense with 19 points as teammate Jaaliyah Biggers added 12 points.
