Class 3A No. 1 Greensburg kept its conference record unblemished with a 73-43 victory at Rushville Friday. The Pirates move to 16-1 (5-0 in EIAC) while the Lions fall to 6-8 (3-3 in EIAC).

Greensburg opened the scoring as Northwestern recruit Bryant McIntosh got the first bucket of the game just 15 seconds into the first quarter. A Cameron Cox put back got the Lions on the board. The Pirates then ran off seven straight points. Sean Sellers started the spurt and Ryan Welage capped it as the Pirates led 9-2.

The Lions were able to close to within five on three occasions in the first quarter. The first came on a bucket by Kris Combs. The second was at 12-7 on a 3-pointer by Bryce Dye and the third was on a Cox 3-pointer to make it 15-10. The Pirates scored the final six points (four by Welage and two by Collin Rigney) to lead 21-10 after the first eight minutes.

Greensburg poured it on in the second quarter – scoring the first 14 points. Sellers scored the first seven of the quarter. After a McIntosh bucket and five straight from Rigney, the Pirates led 35-10. Rushville stopped the run with two Combs free throws and a 3-pointer by Alex Yurack.

Rushville closed to 42-20 at the half on a 3-pointer by Dye and bucket by Cox.

Greensburg opened the third quarter with a 10-2 run. Welage started the scoring and after a bucket by Rushville’s Cox, Rigney, Macy Holdsworth and Sellers added to the spurt to give the Pirates a 30-point advantage, 52-22.

Five points from Ricky Thompson, including three-straight free throws to end the quarter, cut the deficit to 54-28 after three quarters.

The teams traded scores to start the fourth as the Lions were only able to cut the deficit to 60-35. Greensburg then put the finishing touches on the win with a 6-0 run to push the lead to 31 points before closing out the 73-43 victory.
