Pirates repeat as champs in record fashion

Indianapolis — The Greensburg boys basketball team walked onto the floor at Bankers Life Fieldhouse ready to leave it all out on the court Saturday.

In the 89-76 win over Bowman Academy to claim back-to-back state championships, the Pirates showed the state of Indiana what Greensburg basketball is all about. Greensburg displayed its shooting prowess, efficiency and unselfishness in record fashion.

The Pirates either broke records or tied for fifth place in several Class 3A state finals categories. Greensburg broke the team record for points scored, formerly held by Washington against Harding in 2008 with 84.

Greensburg’s 25 assists surpassed the former mark of 20 by Indianapolis Bishop Chatard against Fort Wayne Elmhurst in 2003. Senior Bryant McIntosh’s 11 assists tied the record held by Luke Zeller of Washington against Plymouth in 2005.

After shooting 44 percent from the 3-point line going into the state final, Greensburg shot 57.1 percent (12-for-21), tying Washington’s record against Plymouth in 2005. Washington had shot 8-for-14.

Senior Collin Rigney’s seven 3-pointers fell just one short of the record (held by Bruce Grimm Jr of Rochester against Princeton in 2009), but Rigney owns a new mark with a 3-point rate of 70 percent (7-for-10). The old mark is 67.7 percent (4-for-6) by Tyler Rigby of Jay County against New Castle in 2006.

Greensburg and Bowman combined for the most points scored with 165, breaking the old record of 160 by Princeton (81) and Rochester (79) in 2009.

Greensburg’s 25 assists surpassed the former mark of 20, set in 2003 by Bishop Chatard against FW Elmhurst.

Greensburg fell one made field goal short of tying the record for most made in a final. Bishop Chatard retains the record with 32 against FW Elmhurst in 2003, along with Princeton against Rochester in 2009.

The teams combined to break the record for most total field goals made, with 63. The former record is 59 by Princeton (32) and Rochester (27) in 2009.

Sellers tied for fourth in rebounds (16) with Seth Coy and Tyler Zeller of Washington in 2008. Gerry Hall (Muncie Southside, 1999) and Cody Zeller (Washington, 2010) share the record with 26.
