Tree City rivalry opens basketball season

In an unusual change of venue for the boys basketball season opener Tuesday night, North Decatur hosted Greensburg in Greensburg’s gymnasium.

A well-attended crowd watched Class 3A’s top-ranked Pirates defeat a young Charger squad 96-29.

Greensburg used a 40-point second quarter and a 28-0 run to put the game out of reach, and most of the Pirate starters played less than three quarters.

Greensburg led 65-11 at the half.

Senior Sean Sellers led all scorers with 20 points, including four 3-pointers. Junior Ryan Welage finished with 18 points. Senior Bryant McIntosh followed with 17, including 11 in the second quarter. Senior Brad Wilson scored 14, easily a career high, including eight in the second half. Senior Collin Rigney hit a quartet of triples for 12 points. Sophomore Drew Foster added five points. Senior Bryce Bennett scored his first varsity points with a 3-pointer in the second half. Seniors Macy Holdsworth, Riley Burkert and Tom Lawrence each scored two, while senior Tye Fleetwood chipped in one.

The Pirates made 10 triples on the night and shot 8-for-15 from the foul line.

Sophomore Dayne Lecher led North with 10 points, including both Charger 3-pointers. Sophomore Evan Wallpe scored nine, while sophomores Arek Holloway and Landon Crites each scored four. Sophomore Luke Badgley followed with two.

North shot 11-for-12 from the foul line.

The Greensburg junior varsity squad won the first game 41-26. Drew Foster led all scorers with 15 points. Peyton Buening and Chandler Deaton each scored seven, while Alex Pokrzywinski scored four. Adding three apiece were Kevin Beaver and Jaden Smith (one trey each), while Spencer Burkert chipped in two.

Leading North was Derek Hocker with seven points (one triple). Ben Kinker hit a pair of triples for six, while Cory Fasbinder and Ignacio Martinez each scored four (one triple each). Landon Crites scored three, while Kyle Kramer chipped in two.

A full story with more coverage will be published in Wednesday’s print edition.
