Ram boys end season with tough loss to Carroll

The Ram boys basketball team lost to Carroll 60-52 on Feb. 22 to end their season, but the underdogs did not go down quietly. Greene County led 10-9 after the first period, trailed by four at intermission, and were behind 37-34 going into the final quarter. They stayed close to the 17-4 Tigers until late in the fourth quarter, when Carroll increased their lead to six and then made free throws when they needed them to keep the Rams from getting closer.
This was the Rams best defensive effort of the year, as Greene County’s eight man rotation made it difficult for the Tigers to get the ball down the court and get good looks at the basket. The Tiger’s defense was intense also, as they had a height advantage and blocked several shots in the paint.
Freshman Wade Adcock led Greene county in scoring with 11 points, including 7 of 8 from the charity stripe. Tyler Beger and Trey Tucker added eight points each. Adcock was also the rebound leader with six, while Riah Nelsen was credited with five boards.
The Rams finish their season 6-12 in conference play and 6-15 overall.
