In a game of runs, Shawano’s last one fell just short. Dakota Maltbey’s rebound tip-in at the buzzer didn’t fall and the Hawks fell to Pulaski 55-53 for their first loss of the season. After trailing by 7 points with under two minutes to play, Shawano (2-1) cut the deficit to one before Pulaski converted one of two free throws with 16 seconds left.
Dylan Hendricks led all scorers with 17 points and said it was a taxing game.
“It was a lot of running, a lot of up and down,” Hendricks said. “We were really tired but we knew that It were going to give it one-hundred percent so we came out ready to play and I think we really executed well.”
Cole Nelson had 16 points for Shawano who are off until Tuesday when they travel to Xavier. Pulaski’s (2-0) back in action on Friday when they host Green Bay Preble.
