GHS freshmen lose two games

Thursday, January 22, 2009

The Greencastle boys' freshman basketball team dropped a couple of contests Saturday and Monday.

On Saturday, the Tiger Cubs fell to Owen Valley in the opening game at the OV freshman invitational 40-26.

Leading 16-8 with two minutes to go in the opening half, Greencastle was outscored 9-0, and trailed 17-16 at the break. Shooting only 3 of 16 in the second half, the Tiger Cubs fell behind and could never recover.

Trevor Huber led the scoring for Greencastle with eight points.

Monday, Greencastle traveled to Danville and was defeated 60-23.

Turnovers and poor shooting was again the downfall for the young Tiger Cub squad as they committed 21 turnovers and shot a dismal 22%.

Kaden Faust was the leading scorer for Greencastle with nine points, all coming in the first half.

Greencastle (4-6) travels to Owen Valley for a 6:30 p.m. contest today.
