The Southeastern Indiana Bucks have begun play in fifth grade AAU boys basketball competition. The team participated in the New Pal Shootout on Saturday, March 16.
In game one, the Bucks were defeated by team Lawrence 33-22 in their debut.
“This was the first game the boys have played together, and it showed,” commented coach Jeff Greiwe. “Lawrence has an established program and they played very well.” Sean Means led the Bucks with eight points.
In game two, the IBA Select team defeated the Bucks 45-34. The game was tied at 28 midway through the second half when the Select team started pressing.
“We didn’t handle the press very well and that changed the game,” noted Coach Greiwe. Bo Braunecker scored nine points to lead the team.
Game three saw the Bucks break through the win column with a 35-19 victory over the New Pal Heat. Aaron Greiwe scored a team high eight points in the victory.
“The boys deserved a victory after working so hard all day!” said Coach Greiwe.
Before the Bucks engage in more competition, additional players and a full time coach are needed. Current team members include Garrett Wood, Brandon Borgman, and Sean Means from North Decatur; Bo Braunecker - Henryville; Dakota Day - South Ripley; Kent Biehle - North Vernon; Aaron Greiwe - St. Mary’s.
