The Shelby County boys' basketball team got the season underway with a 75-65 win over the visiting Seneca Redhawks Tuesday.
SCHS head coach Mike Clark said his team progressed as the game went on, pushing the lead out in the second and third quarters.
"I thought we played extremely hard," he said. "I was surprised that we were able to handle their full court press as well as we did, and that we shot so well from the field (53 percent for the game)."
Clark said his sophomore point guard tandem of Cache Tomlinson and Boomer Beckley handled Seneca's pressure very well.
