Elementary school lessons pay off for Pittman, Bearcats at Shelby County

SHELBYVILLE -- All those free throws Dylan Pittman shot while he was in elementary school paid off Friday night.

“When I was nine or ten I was fifth in the nation in a ft contest,” Pittman smiled. “It was sponsored by the Elks Lodge.”

No one was thinking about that contest in the fourth quarter in the Bearcats’ district win at Shelby County, but it might have been prophetic for Anderson.
