Bulldogs knock off top-ranked Pirates

Batesville —

The top-ranked Greensburg boys basketball team fell at Batesville 72-65, ending the Pirates' 31-game regular-season winning streak.

The visiting Pirates had beaten Batesville 10 of the past 11 times, including 10 in the regular season.

Greensburg fell to 11-1 overall and 5-1 in the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference. Batesville is now 9-1 overall and 5-1 in the EIAC.

Bulldog Sophomore Bryan Hoeing scored a career-high 42 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter. He single-handedly outscored Greensburg 13-12 in the first quarter. The visitors actually led 8-2 to start the game. After Batesville pulled ahead 11-9 six minutes into the game, neither team led by more than three points the rest of the half.

Junior Macy Holdsworth's 3-pointer tied the game at 17-all for Greensburg with 3:21 left in the first half. Junior Sean Sellers then converted a 3-point play, making it 20-17. Batesville tied it with a Wesley McKinney triple, but senior Tyler Burcham hit a tough acrobatic floater that made it 22-20 with 1:20 left. However, Bryan Hoeing's free throws tied it back at 22-all at the half.

The Pirates limited Hoeing to four points in the second quarter and seven in the third, lifting themselves on top with a pair of triples by junior Collin Rigney. Greensburg led 42-41 after three quarters.

Hoeing, though, had a fourth quarter to remember. He went to the foul line five times, hitting 10-for-10 in the final quarter alone and scoring 18 overall. Batesville took control 50-45 with 5:33 to go.

Sellers scored eight of his own and McIntosh hit a pair of treys, but it was not enough in the 31-23 Hoeing-dominated period.

Sophomore Ryan Welage and Sellers each led Greensburg with 19 points. McIntosh added 13, including a 3-pointer that brought it to within 63-57 with just under a minute left.

JV Bulldogs win first game

The Greensburg junior varsity squad led 23-17 after three quarters, but Batesville outscored the Pirates 18-8 in the final six minutes to take the first game 35-31.

Leading Greensburg in scoring was Tye Fleetwood with nine points. Brad Wilson followed with eight, while Kevin Beaver and Tom Lawrence each scored four. Adding two apiece were Drew Foster, Josiah Buell and Brice Bennett.
