Shelby Stumbles At Vandy

JOHN CURTIS - Daily Union Sports Editor


Shelbyville basketball seemed to have their chemistry figured out prior to Christmas, but they stumbled on the first day of the Vandalia Holiday Tournament, losing to Vandalia, 66-55, then to St. Anthony.
Shelby fell behind by five in the 1st period against Vandalia, 13-8. They found their stride in the 2nd and matched Vandy's 18-point period. Shelby was still down by just five at the break, 31-26.
Vandy asserted themselves again in the 3rd and the Rams struggled, falling to a 21-12 run and trailing by 14, heading down the stretch, 52-38. The Rams pushed in the 4th and out-scored Vandy, but not enough to undo the damage.
Shelby shot 25 3-pointers and made seven (28%). Vandy shot 3-of-9 from the arc (33%). Shelby had a 12-point adavantage from 3-point territory. However, Shelby only got to the line for seven free throws, making four (57%). Vandy got to the line for 27 foul shots, making 19 (70%).
Shelby shot 15-of-33 from 2-point land (45%). Vandalia shot 19-of-39 from in close (49%). Vandy scored 38 points in close and Shelby 30 points. The 3s offset Vandy's 8-point advantage inside the arc, as Shelby out-scored Vandy 51 to 47 from the floor.
Not getting to the line cost Shelby. Vandy had a 15-point advantage at the line in an 11-point win.
Only one of Shelby's top scorers got in double figures, while Vandy had the game-high scorer and three more players in double figures. Devin Peterson led Shelby with 11 points, including 3-of-4 at the line. Luke McConnell scored 10 points and had nine boards to be just shy of a double-double.
Shelby was out-rebounded 36 to 21. Shelby also had 15 turnovers and Vandy 12.
