Shelbyville loses to Batesville in closing seconds in season finale

Shelbyville and Batesville came right down to the wire Thursday at Garrett Gym.  In the end, an airball three-pointer led to the game winner for the Bulldogs in a 49-48 decision.



After a timeout, Shelbyville reached halfcourt and stopped the clock again with two seconds.  But after an inbounds to Luke Asher the senior's foot slipped and the Golden Bears (8-14) didn't get a good look at a final shot.


Asher scored a game-high 27 points to go with seven rebounds.
