MARION - After trailing 25-21 at halftime, Shalom Christian came out looking like a whole different team Thursday night.

The Flames exploded for 39 points in the second half of a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference boys basketball quarterfinal and held off Heritage Academy for a 60-51 victory.

“This was a big playoff win for us,” Shalom coach Danley Shank said. “We played a very good team in Heritage, and in the first half, they had us working hard to get good looks. In the second half, we were able to pressure a little more, get some stops and then get good looks on offense.”

Cameron Roseman was clutch from the charity stripe. He went 10-for-10 from the line, including eight in the final quarter, and finished with 20 points - just one shy of his season high.

Micah Lehman contributed a career-high 15 points, and Jonah Stains scored 13 points.

“I thought Micah played a good game offensively in the second half and that Jonah set the tone on the defensive end against their best player,” Shank said. “Cam was able to knock down some foul shots to help seal the win.”
