Shelby shuts down Maroa

Shelbyville Ram basketball (3-3, 2-1 OVC) locked down their defense on Friday night and held Maroa to less than 30 points in the conference win, 44-26.

The Rams were unable to run their recent recipe for a win, scoring through their big men. The Rams got just 12 of their points from the post players. The Rams stayed true to their limits of 3-pointer, taking just 16 shots from the arc. The Rams also shot just 32% from the field and 48% from the free throw line.

How did Shelbyville win? Defense.

The Bombers, true to their name made almost have of their buckets from long distance. However, they only had 11 buckets, total. They also got to the line for just two free throws.

Even then the game was still in the balance at the break.

Shelbyville started with a 10-5 run in the 1st, getting scores from five different players. Postmen Luke McConnell and Cwenton Williams had a basket, each and Tyler Hendryx scored. Devin Peterson got to the line and made 1-of-2, while Spencer Shadwell sank a 3-pointer. Maroa had a solo deuce and a solo trey.

But in the 2nd period, the Rams were caught by a 14-7 Maroa run and fell behind. Shadwell hit his second trey and Williams stepped out for a trey. But that was it, besides Bart Kennell making 1-of-2 foul shots.

Meanwhile Maroa, got seven points from Ratts on two twos and a trey. Bryan hit a trey and Murphy and Ritter had solo twos, passing the Rams for a 2 points lead at the half, 19-17.

Shelby brought their hand cuffs out of the locker room and clamped down on Maroa, holding the Bombers to just nine points over the last 16:00 of play.

Shelbyville answered the Maroa 2nd period run with one of their own 14-3 run to start the 2nd half. Drennian Martin sparked the blitz with consecutive 3-pointers, then making a two for 8 of his 10 points. Shadwell added a deuce, as did McConnell and Williams. Maroa only managed a solo trey.
