GHS rally comes up short against Mounties

Saturday, February 18, 2012

GREENASTLE -- It was Senior Night at Greencastle, but Southmont sophomore Devon Burton stole the show and led the Mounties past Greencastle 73-57 Friday night.

Prior to the game the senior players were honored and Nick Hutcheson was honored individually for being one of just 10 players in the history of the state to ever accumulate 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his career.

It looked as though he just might lead the Tigers Cubs (11-6) to a dramatic comeback win as well.

With 4:13 to play in the game the Tiger Cubs had cut a 14-point Southmont lead to two at 53-51. Then Devon Burton went on a run where he nailed 14 of the Mounties next 16 points, including knocking four straight three-pointers to bow the game open going down the stretch.

Before Burton's onslaught, Hutcheson led the comeback for the Tiger Cubs. He scored 12 of his game-high 27 points in the fourth quarter. He accounted for 21 of his 27 points in the second half. He also rebounded a team-high 15 rebounds.

Greencastle started slow and found itself down 15-7 after the first quarter and 31-22 at the half. Poor shooting (just 8-of-26) and 16 turnovers in the first half hurt the offensive effort.

Behind Hutcheson the offense started to click in the second half, but the turnovers continued to pile up. For the game the Tiger Cubs turned the ball over 30 times which led to 23 Southmont points. Southmont committed just 11 turnovers in the game.

Greencastle managed to place just two players in double figures. Hutcheson scored 27 and Trevor Huber added 11.

Greencastle will be back in action will travel to Owen Valley Tuesday with the junior varsity tipping off at 6 p.m.
