Ram 7th Makes Title game

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville 7th grade basketball (13-4), the winners of six in a row, opened the conference tourney on Saturday as the #2 seed against a game Meridian #7 seed. It was a back and forth affair, but the Rams were able to hold on down the stretch to advance, 36-30.

Shelby took a 2-point lead early as Tylr Gottfriedt scored twice and Turner Pullen once. Meridian answered with two solo twos and trailed, 6-4 heading to the 2nd.

Meridian pushed back in the 2nd, as Getz, the game’s leading scorer got started from the arc. He cashed in twice and Doss scored twice from 2-point range for 20 points. The Rams got three more scores from Gottfriedt for 10 of his team-high 16 points in the 1st half. Cade Watson added two free throws and that left the teams tied at the break, 14-14.

The 3rd period Ram run made all the difference. Out of the locker room, Gottfriedt scored three more times, Payton Howell sank a triple and Turner Pullen converted a 3-point play. Watson got to the line again and made 3-of-4 shots to cap the 15-3 Ram run in the 3rd. Meridian only got a deuce and 1-of-2 at the line in the 6:00 period.

Leading 29-17, the Rams were in the catbird seat. The Ram lead held up despite Getz going off for 12 points in the final 6:00. He had a trey and a deuce, made two foul shots, then another two and another triple. Hurelbrink split a pair at the line for the other Meridian point in the 4th.    

That would have been enough to nip the Rams, but the Rams also scored in the 4th to stave off the upset. Howell was the line in the sand, making a deuce, then another trey. Brett Spears also made both ends of a 1-and-1 to seal the deal.

Gottfriedt shot 72.7% from the field (8-of-11) in his 16-point performance. Howell shot 50% from the field for his eight points, 2-of-3 from the arc.
