A day at the state finals

Pirates repeat; Tech gives IPS another title

INDIANAPOLIS – The IHSAA 104th annual boys basketball state finals had a little bit of everything Saturday. For the first time, defending state champs faced off and the Greensburg Pirates repeated as Class 3A champs. An IPS school won the first title in 34 years. The other two games presented an overtime thriller and an outstanding individual performance from a Xavier University recruit.

In the clash of the champions, defending 3A state champ Greensburg met defending Class 2A champ Bowman Academy.

The “curse of the Madden cover” did not have any effect on Greensburg’s Colin Rigney. The Pirate senior was on the cover of the IHSAA state finals program, but unlike the curse of the Madden cover, Rigney had a huge day at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Rigney connected on seven 3-pointers en route to 23 points in the Pirates’ 89-76 victory.

Fellow senior Sean Sellers posted a double-double with 27 points and 16 rebounds. Senior Bryant McIntosh dished out 11 assists and junior Ryan Welage scored 21 points.

Greensburg senior Macy Holdsworth won the Arther L. Trester Award for Class 3A.

The Class A title game kicked off the day as top-ranked Barr-Reeve faced Michigan City Marquette Catholic.

Marquette Catholic’s Ryan Fazekas, 6-8 junior, scored 34 points (seven 3-pointers) and pulled down 10 rebounds in the 70-66 overtime victory over Barr-Reeve.

This is the first state title for the Blazers in boys basketball.

In the Class 2A title game, Park Tudor’s Trevon Bluiett shined in the Panthers’ 84-57 victory over Westview.

Bluiett, headed to Xavier in the fall, scored 38 points and collected 12 rebounds for the Panthers.

The night-cap was the 4A title game between Indianapolis Arsenal Tech and Lake Central. The Tech Titans held the Indians to just 12 points in the first half and then fought off a comeback bid by Lake Central to win the title 63-59. Lake Central outscored the Titans 27-14 in the fourth quarter and cut the 23-point Tech lead to three points late in the fourth before falling to Tech.

Tech senior Trey Lyles, headed to Kentucky University in the fall, had a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Jeremie Tyler led the Titans in scoring with 19 points.
