SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville girls basketball lost a close game on opening night to Okaw Valley, but  on Thursday, they were able to come back from a double-digit deficit and squeeze past Brownstown for a close win, 44-42.

"We had a five point lead, but then we got into foul trouble and were down 11 at the half," said Ram coach Greg Reynolds. "We started to panic, but we held on to pull it out. Now they know they can do it."

After a Bomber miss to start the 4th, Tiffany Heselton buried a three from the key, making it a 3-point game. Brownstown went up 36-31 and the Rams Lindsay Floyd (Windsor) fought for a rebound and was fouled. She sank both free throws 

The next time down the floor, Madison Boone droveinside then dished it out to Floyd for a trey, competing the Ram comeback and tying the game, 36-36, with 5:00 to play.

The Bombers scored off a steal, then scored inside, 40-36. After a near-steal at mid-court, Ram post player Lindsay Burton (Stew-Stras) threw a skip pass to Boone, then cut inside. Boone got her the ball and she put it up past two defender, got the bucket, and the foul. 40-38.

Ram point guard Courtney Schultz (Stew-Stras) stole the ball and brought it back for a fast break 2, knottying the score again with 2:20 to play, 40-40.
