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.

Dylan Miller (6-8) had his way in the 1st half. He slam dunked, blocked shots, hit outside jumpers, and even a 3. Hillsboro was up by ten, 30-20.

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.

In the last 2:42 the two teams put up 24 points, with Shelbyville going on a 17-7 run. Cwenton Williams split a pair at the line and the press got Luke McConnell the ball for a two.

Shelby forced another turnover and Devin Peterson was fouled, making 1-of-2 free throws. Devin Miner then came up with a big foul on the Topper's 6-8 star right at the bucket. He denied the sure two and Miller made only 1-of-2 free throws. 

Tyler Hendryx then hit a 3 and was fouled, cutting the lead to seven with 1:42 to play, 52-45. Miller scored, but Cwenton Williams came right back and scored bringing a Ram time-out with 41.5 seconds left, 54-47.

Shelby had to foul or they may have stole this game. They were down eight when Spencer Shadwell made another 3, mkaing it 56-50 with 17.7 seconds left.
