School record falls in Pirate win

McIntosh breaks single-game assists record

Greensburg — The top-ranked Greensburg boys basketball team cruised to a 79-27 conference win over visiting Franklin County Thursday night.

Greensburg (18-1) extended its conference record to 6-0, leading second-place Batesville (4-1). The Pirates clinched at least a tie for the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference with one EIAC game left.

Despite the starters playing no more than three quarters Thursday, a pair of starters achieved personal milestones. Senior point guard Bryant McIntosh broke the school record for assists with 15 in a single game. Tom Greve held the previous record of 14 on Feb. 5, 1980 against Batesville.

“I was just trying to create opportunities for my teammates,” said McIntosh of his strategy Thursday. “I found out I was close to the record, and I thought I’d try for it.”

McIntosh noted that early in Thursday’s game, he realized his shots were not falling.

“The ball was just hanging on the rim, and I didn’t feel like it was my night,” he said of his uncharacteristic off night. “My teammates had to step up and I was just trying to create for them, and make it easy for them.”

Four different players scored in double figures for Greensburg, and 10 different players scored.

Also achieving a personal best was senior forward Tom Lawrence, who tied a career-high with 10 points. The starter hit two of Greensburg’s 12 3-pointers on the night. Lawrence hit two straight treys to start the second half.

Senior Sean Sellers matched the Wildcats’ output with 27 points, including a career-high five triples.

The Pirates jumped out to a 21-4 lead after the first stop, with Sellers setting the pace with 13 points on a trio of three’s. Junior Ryan Welage also did damage with eight points in the first eight minutes.

Greensburg enjoyed a 40-6 halftime lead, and 69-9 after three quarters before the starters sat.

Welage finished with 14 points, while senior Macy Holdsworth scored 11 (three 3-pointers). Senior Tom Lawrence tied a career-high with 10 points. Senior Brad Wilson scored five points off the bench, while senior Tye Fleetwood and sophomore Drew Foster added triples in the fourth quarter. Senior Riley Burkert and McIntosh each scored two.

Greensburg next hosts South Decatur Saturday, with the junior varsity game starting at noon and the varsity to follow.

The Pirate JV team won 41-30, improving to 15-1. Chandler Deaton led his team with 15 points. Drew Foster followed with 11. Kevin Beaver and Tommy Carey each hit a 3-pointer and scored five points, sophomore Peyton Buening added a triple and Keegan McCullough chipped in two points.

Greensburg’s home game against South Decatur Saturday was postponed until Tuesday, with the JV game starting at 6 p.m.
