Pirate 8B boys host Spartans

The Greensburg boys 8B basketball team hosted the Connersville Spartans and lost 30-28. The Pirates, now 3-5, attempted a game-tying buzzer-beater in the corner but missed to end the game.

“In back-to-back nights, our games have come down to the final buzzer,” said head coach Justin Tucker. “While it would be nice to win them all, I could not be more proud of this team. Connersville is an excellent team, and we played with them until the final second. These players should be very proud of themselves.”

Cory Adams, for the seventh time this season, led the team in scoring. He scored 10 points, including one 3-pointer. Zach Pokrzywinski added five points for the Pirates, while Keaton Atchley and James Scudder put up four each. Dylan Barber and Thomas Stevens each gave the Pirates two points, as Kirk Scott added one. Tanner Carman and Darian Davis each gave the Pirates a great defensive effort, according to Tucker.

Scudder, once again, led the team with double-digit rebounds with 12, as Atchley added two and Stevens chipped in one. Point-guard Keaton Atchley led the team in assists with two, while Adams, Stevens, and Barber each had one.

“I am truly honored to be the coach of this team,” noted Tucker. “They continue to show resiliency, especially when some things don’t go as planned. So many of these players have grown up and matured right in front of everyone’s eyes. I am truly excited to see how these guys continue to mold themselves not only into great basketball players and quality teammates, but into overall excellent people.”

The Pirates will conclude their season at home in the eighth grade tournament this Saturday. The tournament also includes the Connersville, Rushville and Jennings County. The first game begins at 9 a.m., where the Pirates will play Rushville.
