Greensburg 49, Batesville 43; 3A Sectional 29 Championship

Aurora- They were down. They were pushed. They were challenged. But they prevailed. The Greensburg Lady Pirates captured their fourth girls basketball sectional title Saturday at South Dearborn with a 49-43 victory over Batesville.

Coach Darrick Cox and his Lady Bulldogs held a lead over the second ranked and favored Lady Pirates for well over 2-1/2 quarters.  Batesville went up 5-3 on a first quarter, step-back three by Gabi Garcia.  The Dogs held the high side of the scoreboard until Greensburg’s Kyra Whitaker hit two free throws near the end of the third quarter to give the Bucs a 34-33 edge with eight minutes to play.

Batesville’s biggest leads of the first half both were seven points at the the end of the first period, 15-8, and at halftime, 27-20.  Garcia had two triples in the first quarter for BHS and Hattie Westerfeld dropped in 13 points for the half with nine coming in the second quarter.  For GCHS, Aliyah Evans had five of her seven first-half points in the opening stanza while Whitaker carded all nine of her points in the second.  They came on a pair of 3-balls and one 3-point play.

A contributing factor to Batesville’s success over the first 16 minutes was rebounding.  The Bulldogs had a 21-12 advantage in boards overall including a 7-1 edge on the offensive end.

Coach Jason Simpson’s Pirates picked things up defensively in the second half.  Shooting improved some, but it was really better defensive pressure which prevented a Batesville bucket here and led to a Greensburg basket there.  By the end of the third, Greensburg was up 34-33, its first lead since 3-2 via an Evans’ trifecta.
