OAK HILL — There wasn’t any fire department Rock Hill coach Dave Hopper could call to put out this fire.

The Oak Hill Oaks hit 11 3-pointers and shot well from everywhere including the foul line as they beat the Rock Hill Redmen 79-44 Friday.

“Oak Hill really shot the ball well. I thought Wellston was on fire against us. I think Oak Hill was even hotter,” said Hopper.

Garrin Stiltner had 21 points including 8-of-10 at the line to lead the Oaks (7-1). Jordan Fisher hit four 3-pointers and scored 16 points in the win while Jonathon Harrison added 13 points.

The Oaks were 14-of-16 from the foul line as a team.

Austin Collins led Rock Hill (1-6) with a game-high 24 points. He also had 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Alex Nance grabbed 8 rebounds and Aaron Dalton pulled down 6.

Harrison matched Rock Hill’s total in the first quarter as the Oaks took a 16-6 lead.

Fisher had 11 points and Stiltner 6 in the second quarter as the lead grew to 36-17 at the half.

Collins had 6 points in the third quarter but Stiltner scored 9 and the Oaks stretched the lead to 58-30.

Collins had 12 points of Rock Hill’s 14 points in the fourth quarter.

The Redmen play at Gallipolis on Monday.
