Greensburg 61, Danville 52; Lady Pirates capture first semi-state

Jeffersonville-  So what are your slipper sizes Lady Pirates?  Since you’ve never been to the big dance before in Indy, the question had to be asked.

On Saturday at the IHSAA Girls’ Basketball 3A South Semi-State hosted by Jeffersonville, No. 2 Greensburg defeated No. 7 Danville 61-52.  It was another first in a post-season of firsts for coach Jason Simpson’s Lady Pirates: first regional win, first regional championship and now first semi-state title.

Coach Kaley May’s Warriors were back in Jeffersonville for a second straight final four appearance.  The club from Hendricks County had won 25 games this season, including 10 in a row.  But throughout the postseason, Danville’s players competed with a chip on their shoulders.  In several published articles, this phrase was echoed, “We’re not a fluke.”

Even after Saturday’s loss, the Warriors proved they are anything but.  They are good and deserved to be in Jeffersonville.  Saturday just wasn’t Danville’s day.

Instead, it was the Pirates who raised their flag to full mast after capturing their 23rd victory of the season and 10th straight.  Greensburg, unselfish and unrelenting, showed it also deserved to be in the final four and, with a better overall performance Saturday, earned a trip to Bankers Life on February 24.

The Bucs’ Kyra Whitaker shot her club out to a 5-0 start on a trey and a deuce.  The Warriors responded with six straight points. An inside two by Addie Collier gave Danville a brief, 1-point lead, but a free throw followed by a triple from Bailey Meyer put Greensburg back in front.  The Pirates led 11-8 after one stop.  Jenna Cowart had two field goals in the quarter for Danville.

The Warriors controlled most of the first six minutes of the second stanza.  Addie Collier, younger sister Ella, and Cowart combined to outscore Greensburg 17-6 and moved ahead 25-17.  It was Danville’s biggest lead of the game.  The six Pirate points came on two 3-balls from Micah Morrison and Rhegan Day.
