Tigers eliminate Lions with 60-54 victory

GREENSBURG – On the opening night of the boys basketball sectional, host Greensburg dominated South Dearborn 105-38 in the first game and Lawrenceburg held off the Lions 60-56 despite struggling in the fourth quarter at the charity stripe.

Lawrenceburg improves to 12-9 on the year while the Lions finish at 10-10.

Lawrenceburg opened the scoring with a 3-pointer by Jordan Kauffman. The Lions answered with a Mitch Laird triple before Adam Harves hit Lawrenceburg’s second 3-pointer to put the Tigers up 6-3.

The Tigers pushed the lead to 13-5 on a Mitch Martin 3-pointer and again Laird responded with a triple to cut the deficit to five. Following a Martin bucket, Bryce Dye drained a 3-pointer with one minute to play in the first quarter to get the Lions within four at 15-11. Jesse Hennies scored late for the Tigers, but a drive to the bucket by Kris Combs cut the deficit to 17-13 after the first quarter.

A Martin triple opened the second quarter. Cameron Cox got free in the lane for a bucket for the Lions before Martin scored again to make it 22-15. Alex Yurack scored the next four points for the Lions as the lead was down to three. After a Hennies rebound bucket, Nate Niehoff got on the board to again cut the deficit to three. Kauffman closed the half with a driving bucket that gave the Tigers a 28-23 lead at the break.

The Lions got off to a good start to the second half with a 7-2 run. Yurack started the spurt, Dye drained a 3-pointer and then dished to Cox for the bucket and a tie game 30-30. After a Lawrenceburg timeout, the Tigers scored the next 10 points to grab a 40-30 lead and force Rushville head coach Brian Bowen to call timeout. A set play out of the break got Niehoff open. He drew the foul and connected on a pair from the line to stop the Tiger run.
