Greensburg — The Greensburg girls basketball team rose above the .500 mark this season with a 55-40 win over host Lawrenceburg Saturday.

“We continued to play strong defense and improve on offense,” said head coach Mike Miller. “We did an excellent job moving the ball throughout the game. I’m proud of the team we have become on defense, and the way we are improving offensively.”

The varsity squad shot 9-for-15 from the foul line.

Other 3-pointers:  Ward 2, Owens 1.
