With the temperatures dropping outside, Bellefontaine’s shooting inside took a big dip as well Tuesday night.

The host Chiefs shot 39 percent from the field, including a zero for seven effort from three-point range, in a lackluster 45-41 loss to rival Urbana.

“We didn’t shoot the ball well at all,” said Bellefontaine coach Henry Stolly. “It was one of our worst shooting nights of the season.”

The loss was the third in a row for Bellefontaine (7-5). It also marked their fourth straight loss to Urbana in the annual series.

“This is a big win for us,” said Urbana head coach Jeremy Dixon. “It is not easy to come up here and win on this court. It wasn’t pretty. I told our guys that you just have to battle and make plays, and that is what they did.”
