Harlan drops 25 in GHS loss

Monday, January 26, 2009

CLAYTON -- The damper put on Cascade's Homecoming festivities by the Greencastle girl's victory over the Cadets was lifted in the boys' game when the Cadet boys basketball team defeated the Tiger Cubs 67-59 Friday. With the defeat, the Tiger Cubs dropped to 1-2 in WCC contests.

Greencastle started off strong with two three pointers by Kyle Harlan. But the Cubs could not sustain his drive, ending the first quarter behind, 13-11.

Cascade's Conner Guthrie put up five points with a bucket and a three pointer, and continued to score with a bucket by Zach Baldwin, a free throw by Mikey Pelley, a bucket by Ross Waggoner, and three free throws by Guthrie. The Tiger Cubs had a bucket by Nick Hutcheson and a three pointer from Justin Bartrum.

In the second quarter the Cadets continued to outscore the Tiger Cubs, 17-13. Greencastle once again had a trio of three pointers from Ashton Marshall, Jordan Hickam, and Harlan. Hickam contributed another bucket and two free throws. Guthrie scored two three pointers for the Cadets in the second quarter with regular buckets from Pelley, Andrew Arthur, and Henry Heimansohn. At halftime Cascade was leading 31-24.

Greencastle put up its strongest challenge to the Cadets in the third quarter, outscoring the cadets 18-17, with Harlan leading the scoring for the quarter, with Hutcheson and Huber also hiting their targets. Bartrum, Harlan, amd Hickam all put up threes for Greencastle in the fourth quarter, but Cascade still outscored them 19- 17 to win the game.

"At times we played pretty well," said Greencastle's head coach Troy Greenlee. "[But] I think we gave [Cascade] too many second chance opportunities, too many hustle plays where they just seem to want the ball more than we did and it ended up being baskets for them. When you play a {scrappy] team like Cascade, they're always going to play hard, [so] you have to win those battles and we just didn't do that tonight.

"I thought Kyle Harlan played really well. If we'd just had another guy or two complement him we would have been all right. It's one of those games where we don't make enough plays, we give up too many second chances to them, and that's why we get beat by eight [points]," Greenlee commented.
