Smarter offense and better defense sparked the Shelby County Rockets Saturday to a come-from-behind win over Kentucky Country Day.
The Rockets trailed, and trailed big, in the early stages of the game before re-grouping to score a 70-55 win.
With KCD’ s Anthony Mathis holding the hot hand, the Bearcats jumped out to an early 16-point first-half lead. Mathis hit six three-pointers in the game to finish with 27 points and got KCD out quick.
Shelby County was able to weather the Bearcats’ offensive storm and slowly got back into the game.
