Senior Night started out well for the Shelby County boys’ basketball team.
Reed Mills sang the national anthem, then the fired up Rockets led visiting DeSales after the first quarter.
The Colts spoiled the celebration, though, coming back to beat Shelby County, 70-52, Tuesday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium.
“They had a couple shooters knock down a couple shots, and they had a big kid inside who hurt us,” Rockets Coach Rick Parsons said.
Early on, though, Shelby (6-24) held its own against the Colts (12-15).
