Pirates set for epic Semi-State clash


Greensburg —

Senior power forward Cris Burrough, who adds bulk to the Eagles’ lineup at 6-foot-6, averages 9.1 points and 4.1 rebounds.

The game will spotlight two of the state’s best point guards in Greensburg senior Bryant McIntosh and Guerin senior Whit Rapp. McIntosh, the Pirates’ career assists leader, averages 14.1 points and nine assists. He was two rebounds short of a triple-double in the regional championship against Evansville Memorial Saturday, posting 12 points, 11 assists and eight boards. McIntosh’s assist-turnover ratio is an astounding 8.71. Rapp’s is also impressive at 3.91. Rapp averages 7.8 points and 8.9 assists per game, and adds 4.3 rebounds.

Junior forward Matt Holba, who transferred from Chesterton, brings his 6-foot-6 frame, 15.6 points and 6.9 rebounds to the court Saturday to boost an Eagle squad that fell short in last year’s Sectional.

Holba has drawn interest from Division I colleges, along with Brennan and Burrough.

Greensburg’s prolific shooting does not end with the starting lineup. Senior forward Tom Lawrence, the Pirates’ sixth man, shoots 50 percent from the field, 42 percent from 3-point range and 71 percent from the foul line. His 1.47 assist-turnover ratio only helps the Pirates, and his 6-foot-6 frame gives them matchup versatility. Senior Tye Fleetwood, an athletic guard with quickness, shoots 53 percent from the field and 65 percent from the foul line.

Guerin is coached by Pete Smith, who is 141-61 (69.8 percent) in his 10th year at the school and 325-214 (60 percent) in his 23rd year overall.

Greensburg head coach Stacy Meyer is 144-48 (75 percent) at Greensburg and 202-104 (66 percent) in his 13th year overall.

Sellers said the Pirates have confidence in each other and their coaching staff to prepare them for one of the biggest games in the program’s history.

“Next weekend’s going to be a definite grind-out kind of game,” said Sellers after the regionals. “They’re very good at running their sets, and executing well, and getting the best shot for them. It’s definitely going to be a good test for us.”

Bowman Academy (21-4) plays Fort Wayne Dwenger (17-8) in the Huntington Semi-State at 5:15.
