In the final game of the Kewpee classic, Shelby stunned the host Lima Sr with a 73-69 victory. Shelby and Lima Sr played a tight first quarter, but Shelby took control in the second as Lima Sr really couldn’t find the bottom of the net very often. Fueled by efficient offense and grabbing defensive rebounds, Shelby controlled about a 15 point advantage throughout the entire third quarter. Thanks to 27 points from Juniors Brazure Roberts and Marshall Shepherd, the Whippets were able to maintain their scoring advantage. Lima Sr has a never quit attitude, and the Spartans stormed back in the fourth quarter. The Spartans were using their full-court press to create steals and on offense were doing a good job of scoring in transition as the Spartans struggled mightily from the outside and in the half-court. Lima Sr had a 3-point shot to try and tie the game with five seconds left that rattled off the rim and Shelby escaped with the win to improve to 3-0 on the young season and hand Lima Sr their first loss, dropping the Spartans to 4-1.
