Pirates advance to semifinal, 105-38

Six score in double figures

Greensburg — The Greensburg boys basketball team opened the Greensburg Sectional 29 Tournament with an emphatic statement. Whichever team wants to win the title will have to stop the defending sectional champion first.

Greensburg (22-1) eliminated South Dearborn 105-38 in one of the most balanced offensive performances head coach Stacy Meyer has ever seen. Six Pirates scored in double figures, including three by halftime.

The Greensburg defense created the scoring chances in the opening minutes of the game. Greensburg jumped out to a 21-0 lead before the halfway mark of the first quarter, and the Knights (3-19) were scoreless until that point.

Seniors Sean Sellers and Tom Lawrence were active in the first eight minutes. Sellers scored seven points in the opening frame, while Lawrence added four – including a tip-in at the buzzer to make it 33-4 at the first stop. Senior Macy Holdsworth added eight points, including a pair of 3-pointers.

After missing three straight games prior to the season finale, senior Collin Rigney regained his shooting game. Rigney hit his second of three triples halfway through the second quarter. Moments later, Rigney, Sellers and senior Bryant McIntosh each hit a trey inside a span of one minute to build a 49-8 lead. Sellers later scored along the baseline at the buzzer, putting the Pirates up 57-13 at the half.

Coach Meyer applauded Greensburg for having an answer against a Knight zone defense.

“We moved the ball very well,” he said. “We stayed focused throughout on both ends of the floor.”

Sellers scored in a flurry to begin the second half. The leading scorer at the half (12 points) scored 18 points in the third quarter alone, helping the Pirates build a 50-point lead at 68-18.

Sellers finished with 30 points, a tournament career high, and 11 rebounds.

“He did a nice job in the third quarter of offensive rebounding,” said Meyer of Sellers.
