Greencastle's boys' basketball team posted a 13-9 record and was the only team in the county with a winning record during the 2011-12 season. GHS might have had the only winning record, but Cloverdale, North Putnam and South Putnam all achieved some big time wins this season and continued to grow their programs.

A big part of Greencastle's success this season came inside. The senior tandem of Nick Hutcheson and Jesse Tesmer gave teams match-up problems and provided some big moments for the Tiger Cubs.
