Madison’s fire cools top guns in OT

Greensburg — It felt like a sectional atmosphere in the Greensburg High School gymnasium, but the host Pirate boys basketball team most likely preferred the game didn’t become as exciting as it did.

The top-ranked Pirates fell to 12th-ranked Madison 89-87 Friday after leading by 21 points early in the second half.

Madison stormed back on the strength of hot shooting – which Greensburg had no answer for. The Cubs made 15 shots from 3-point range and stayed hot throughout the game.

Greensburg (13-1) led 25-13 after the first stop and 46-30 at the half. However, Madison scored 53 second-half points and forced overtime, despite its top scorer fouling out.

Junior Kyle Tucker hit a triple that sent the Cubs over the Pirates with less than four seconds left.

Leading the way in the early going was Greensburg junior Ryan Welage and Madison senior Landon Perry. Judging by the halftime score, the Pirates’ home court looked secure. Welage had 16 points at the break and Perry had 19, including five treys. That production by Perry, though, was a harbinger of what took place in the second half.

Senior Collin Rigney opened the second half with a triple, giving Greensburg its largest lead at 51-30.

Madison, though, went on a 24-16 run and cut it to 11, 65-54 at the end of the third quarter.

Madison junior Nick Macon scored 30 points in the second half and overtime, helping fuel a 27-7 Cub rally that spanned the start of the fourth quarter. Rigney’s trey early in the fourth gave the Pirates their last double-digit lead, 68-57. A 10-2 run tied the game at 70-all, thanks to three more treys.

Greensburg went back up by six, 78-72, on a Rigney score and four Welage points.

After seeing Madison climb to within two (80-78), senior Macy Holdsworth answered to make it a two-score game. Fortunately for Madison, though, Greensburg could only make one of two free throws with 6.3 seconds left after the Cubs again pulled back to within two.
