SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Neoga was ranked the #2 seed and Dieterich the #5 seed in the NTC Basketball Tournament. But, the two teams were a lot closer than that as they played to a 1-point win for Dieterich in the 3rd place game of the NTC tourney on Saturday, 37-36.

Neoga carried a 9-6 lead into the 2nd period and a 16-12 lead into the half. Dieterich's leading scorer Candace Niemerg was held to just two points in the 1st half. But a 9-4 run by Dieterich in the 3rd gave the Maroons the lead.
