Last-second shot doesn't fall for Spring Valley hoops

Kyle Shafer knocks the ball out of the hands of Glenwood City's Nick Schouten.

SPRING VALLEY - A half-court shot at the buzzer by Dylan Webster almost went in. Almost, as Spring Valley lost another close ballgame 58-56 at home to rival Glenwood City Friday.

The loss dropped Spring Valley to 0-17 on the season.

SV jumped out to an early 8-0 lead but Glenwood City game back in the second quarter and made for another classic contest between the two rivals.

The Cardinals were led in scoring by Ted Anderson's 17 points to go with 16 points from Kyle Shafer. Valley, however, saw both Anderson and fellow starter Kyler Gotzman foul out of the game. They also saw GC make 16-of-26 free throws compared to Valley's 9-for-16 effort.

The Cardinals were playing their fourth game in a row without head coach Rob Bosshart, who had been hospitalized two weeks ago due to a back injury. He's back home and reportedly will be returning to his teaching duties this week.
