Pirates' journey to lofty goals starts tonight

One sure strength that the Greensburg boys basketball team, the defending Class 3A state champion, has on its side is its desire to play unselfish ball.

Head coach Stacy Meyer, whose program prides itself on sharing the offense, appreciates that out of his players.

“Maturing one year is the continued unselfish play,” he said. “That’s been what we’ve done very well the last few years offensively, sharing the basketball, and we have to continue to do that. We have to make other guys around us better, and we have to continue with that attitude.”

All five starters return on a team that competed in one of the state’s toughest paths to the finals. The starters accounted for 87 percent of Greensburg’s scoring. Lost to graduation were sixth man Tyler Burcham, Shane Ploeger (91 points and 48 rebounds) and Riley Billieu (36 points, 18 rebounds).

Senior point guard Bryant McIntosh, who signed his national letter of intent this month to play basketball for Northwestern University, will run the floor for a third straight season. Greensburg’s career leader in assists, named All-Conference and All-State, averaged more than 16 points and seven assists. He also shot 45.6 percent on three’s.

Senior forward Sean Sellers, who signed to play for Ball State, is the program’s career leader in scoring and rebounding. The All-Conference and All-State player posted 17.7 points and more than seven rebounds per game. Sellers also shot 83 percent from the foul line and 41 percent on three’s.

Senior guard Macy Holdsworth, a fourth-year starter, was All-Conference last winter. He signed a letter of intent to play baseball for Indiana University. Holdsworth scored seven points per game – including 45 percent from the 3-point line - and added more than 90 assists last season.

Senior guard Collin Rigney, a second-year starter, averaged 7.3 points and shot 40 percent on three’s. Rigney signed to play tennis for Ball State.
