Pirates improve to 7-1 in conference

Greensburg — The Greensburg boys basketball team recorded two straight conference victories this weekend.

The victory marked the Pirates’ third straight since losing to Batesville for their first loss of the season.

Greensburg improved to 14-1 on the season and 7-1 in the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference.

The Pirates jumped out to a 13-0 lead, and 18-5 after the first eight minutes. The hosts went into halftime leading 33-13, then 49-21 after three quarters.

Head coach Stacy Meyer said he was pleased with his team’s effort on both sides of the ball.

“I think we got a great start to the game and kept building on it with defense and rebounding,” he said. “We got guys open and got easier-looking shots.”

Greensburg, ranked second in the Associated Press Class 3A poll for a second straight week, shot 16-for-24 (67 percent) from the foul line.

Junior Bryant McIntosh led Greensburg with 17 points, including 12 in the first half. Junior Sean Sellers scored 15, including a pair of 3-pointers and 7-for-9 at the foul line. Sophomore Ryan Welage scored nine points. Junior Macy Holdsworth rounded out the starters’ scoring with four points, including a triple. McIntosh also hit a triple.

Seven players for Greensburg scored off the varsity bench. Senior Shane Ploeger led the reserves with five points, including 3-for-4 at the foul line. Senior Riley Billieu added four points, while senior Tyler Burcham and Tom Lawrence each scored three. Juniors Tye Fleetwood and Brad Wilson chipped in two points apiece.

Meyer commended the reserves for taking control when the starters sat.

“They took over where the starters left off,” he said. “They defended on the other end and rebounded well.”

Senior Jalen Obertate led Lawrenceburg with seven points.

The Pirate junior varsity crew defeated the Tigers 53-40 in the first game, improving to 12-3 on the season. Tom Lawrence led his team with 15 points, including 5-for-5 from the foul line. Josiah Buell shot 10-for-10 from the line and scored 12 points. Tye Fleetwood scored 10 points, Brad Wilson scored nine, freshman Drew Foster added five and Bryce Bennett chipped in one.

The Greensburg boys defeated host South Dearborn 72-44 Friday in Aurora.

Sellers recorded a double-double with a team-high 23 points and 10 rebounds. McIntosh followed with 15 points, while Welage added 12 points. Rounding out the scoring for the Pirates were Burcham and junior Collin Rigney with six apiece. Ploeger scored four and junior Tom Lawrence chipped in three.

The Greensburg junior varsity squad captured the first game 59-24.

Foster led all scorers with 19 points. Tom Lawrence scored 10, while Josiah Buell scored seven. Kevin Beaver added six, while Riley Burkert and Bryce Bennett each added five. Brad Wilson scored four and Tye Fleetwood chipped in three.
