Ram recipe bakes Stew-Stras

Cross-county combatants competed Friday night in Comet Country. Stew-Strasc is working on finding more points, while Shelbyville has found a recipe for success. The Rams got cooking and gradually pulled away for a near 20-point victory, 79-60.

Brandon Helmuth had a game-high 26 points for the Comets and Jason Fry had 13. Bryse Bugger produced another double-digit performance with 10 points.

Shelbyville got 35 points from their two post up players. Luke McConnell scored 20 points with a team-high eight boards and three blocked shots. Cwenton Williams 15, including stepping out of the lane for a trey hat trick, making 3-of-4 (75%).

Shooting guard Spencer Shadwell had another 15 points with a solo bucket from the arc (1-of-2) and a team-high five assists, while back-up board man Bart Kennell ground out another 10 points, four boards and two blocks, giving the Rams four men in double figures and 12-point advantage from their main scorers.

Three-point threat Drennian Martin added seven points on twobombs from downtown and Tice Robinson also hit twice from distance (2-of-4), finishing with eight points. Stew-Stras had six points from Mark Jones and four from Austin Rincker, falling another five points shy of Shelbyville’s second line.

The Rams inside men are gaining offensive confidence as McConnell and Williams have been the leading scorers recently, and the outside shooters are picking their spots after going inside. The Rams shot 27 3s in a loss to Okaw Valley. But in the last two games, they have confined themselves to 19 attempts and relied more on inside scoring.

The Rams shot 65% inside the arc on Friday and 42% long distance. Stew-Stras shot 52% inside and just 18% from the arc.

Shelby lit it from the arc early with a quartet of triples in the first quarter. Williams stepped out for back-to-back treys, then scored a two to lead the Rams 20-point period. Martin and Robinson also were early arc angels. McConnell scored twice and Shadwell once.
