The Shamrocks held home court holding on for a 55-52 win in the region opener for both teams. Eau Claire used a 7-0 in the 4th quarter to go up 42-35, but was quickly answered by a 7-0 run from Saluda that tied the score at 42. Saluda went up by 4 points with 2:00 minutes to go, but the Shamrocks employed a 1-2-2 three-quarter court press that confused the Tigers and allowed them to score 7 straight points in less than 1 minute of action. The Shamrocks were led by Robert Johnson who scored a game high 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assist. The Shamrocks will go for three in a row on Tuesday when they travel to North Augusta to take on the Predators of Fox Creek.
