Sectionals mark several milestones for Pirates

Greensburg — The Greensburg boys basketball team did more than clinch its third straight sectional championship Saturday.

The program also achieved several school and individual records.

Team and personal milestones seem to have become as common as the championships that the Pirates bring back to their hometown.

History came full circle Saturday as head coach Stacy Meyer, a Greensburg alumnus, coached his 200th career victory on the same night that his team clinched a third straight sectional title.

In his 13th season coaching, Meyer is now 200-104 overall and 142-48 his eighth year at Greensburg. To put the program’s success into perspective, Meyer’s 100th defeat was during the freshman season of the current seniors. Just 11 losses have spanned more than four seasons.

“It’s a great milestone to reach, but it’s not me,” he said of the 200th win. “It’s these kids that we’ve had since I’ve been here. Our coaching staff, the administration – it takes a culmination of all that to have success. I’ve just been blessed since I’ve been here.”

Senior point guard Bryant McIntosh is producing the most prolific assist totals of his career, averaging more than 12 in his past three games. The Northwestern-bound guard tallied 15 assists in the semifinal against Franklin County, and 10 against Batesville. He became the school’s record-holder for assists in a season during last year’s regionals, passing Tom Greve’s previous record of 176.

After falling just short of 200 as a junior, McIntosh now has 226 after 25 games this season (more than nine per game).

Senior Sean Sellers, the program’s career scoring and rebounding leader, surpassed two personal milestones in the fourth quarter. He passed 1,800 points and now has 1,802, along with 502 for the season.

“I think it’s great that we both were able to break those records, but it wouldn’t have been possible without my teammates and them putting me in positions where I can be successful,” said Sellers. “And it makes it easier that Macy (Holdsworth), Collin (Rigney), and Ryan (Welage) help stretch the floor for Bryant and me to create and drive.”
