The Shippensburg High School boys basketball team looked right at home playing in the pressure-packed atmosphere of district playoffs.

Not only do the No. 3 seeded Greyhounds (15-2) have a wealth playoff experience, they also hosted a familiar opponent in the No. 14 seeded Big Spring Bulldogs (10-9), whom they had already defeated twice before this season. This time — despite a spirited effort from their rivals — the result was no different, as the Greyhounds pulled away in the fourth quarter in order to defeat the Bulldogs in the District 3 Class 5A opening round matchup Tuesday at SASHS, 63-44.
