The Greensburg boys 8B basketball team competed against Shelbyville at home and lost 45-42. The Pirates led several times throughout the game, even leading by two with 49 seconds remaining, but came up short.

“While this was an exciting game for the players and fans, this is a game where we learned a lot. In the end, that is what this level is all about,” said head coach Justin Tucker.

“Although we did lose, the team we played against was a very talented team, and we have to look past it. Some things did not go our way, but we must learn from that and improve from it,” added Tucker.
