Greenville also had a 4-point edge scoring from the floor (52%). That, plus free throws gave them the margin of victory.

The Rams and the Comets were locked in a 13-13 tie after the 1st period, then Shelbyville took a 1-point lead at the break, 27-26.

Greenville picked upo the pace in the 3rd and the Rams lost the lead, but it was still anyboidy's game at the start of the 4th with the Comets leading by just three, 43-40.

Greenville finished strong as they blue-streaked away from the Rams on a crushing 14-4 final run for the win.

The Ram leading scorer for the game, Cwenton Williams finished with 11 points, but on the bench with five fouls.
