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.

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.
