After falling behind 12-0 in the first quarter, the GHS JV boys' basketball squad came storming back and defeated Cloverdale Thursday at McAnally Center.
Things didn't look good for the young Tiger Cubs as they fell behind early and didn't score their first points of the contest until 1:49 remained in the first quarter.
Head coach Doug Hudson had to use two timeouts in the opening minutes in an attempt to stop the Clovers' run.
"I am not so sure we were ready to play coming out of the locker room and I will take the blame for that," Hudson said. "During the second timeout, I questioned the teams defensive ability, offensive ability, and many other things. As the timeout continued, the madder and madder I became.
"The good thing is, however, that the young men responded," he added. "We always say in our program, it isn't what life throws at you, it is how you respond. Tonight these kids responded. We are looking for great things out of this team and I think they grew tremendously tonight."
Offensively, seven Tiger Cubs found the scoring column led by Bollman with 10 and Anthony Mitchell and Tanner Nicholson with eight each. Cloverdale was led by Larrry Farley with 13 points and Zach Dorman with 12.
"Lane Winslow and Brody Bollman didn't start tonight, but both came off of the bench and were huge. Lane picked us up defensively by getting steals and deflections and Brody was our offensive catalyst. I stress that it may be different guys on different night, and tonight it happened to be these two," Hudson said.
Greencastle now stands at 1-2 on the season and travels to Sullivan Saturday.
