Rams Go Down Fighting

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — New look Shelbyville opened their season at home against a quick Hillsboro club with a 6-8 standout and despite slipping back by 13 with 2:42 left in the game they lost by just three, making the final shot at the buzzer, 58-55.

Shelbyville outscored the Hilltoppers 10-5 in a defensive 3rd. Cwenton Williams scored back-to-back baskets and Tyler Hendryx drove for two in an 8-1 run, and trailed by just five to start the final frame, 35-30.

Hillsboro stretched out to a 10-point lead in the first two minutes of the 4th. Cwenton Williams left Miller in the post and hit a 3 from the key cutting the lead to six, 41-35.

Tyler Hendryx hit another Ram 3 to make it a 5-point game with 3:40 left, 43-38. Hillsboro then had their best stretch of the game, getting out in transition and going on an 8-0 run and building a 13-point lead, 51-38.
