Shawnee senior guard Jaden Greenwood scores 20 points in six quarters.
JAMESTOWN — Basketball practice is only two weeks underway, but Shawnee already looked in midseason form in a scrimmage yesterday against Greeneview.
Shawnee beat Greeneview five out of six quarters and tied with the Rams in the sixth quarter. The Braves outscored Greeneview 79-37 combined in all six quarters. Senior guard Jaden Greenwood, who is entering his senior season for the Braves, scored 20 points in five quarters.
Greenwood is one of several key returning players for Shawnee this season. Andrew Tincher, also a guard, returns for his senior season. Tincher did not play in Saturday’s scrimmage due to a minor shoulder injury.
Three out of the top four seeds are in the top bracket.
SPRINGFIELD — Getting the top seed in a sectional come time for the tournament draw usually paves an easy road for a team to make it to the districts. Urbana, the top seed in the Springfield Division II sectional, doesn’t have an easy road to the second round.
First, the Hillclimbers have to take on rival Graham. The Falcons (3-18) have struggled this season, but games against rivals can be challenging, especially come tournament time. Graham gave the Hillclimbers a scare in regular season game on Jan. 10. The Falcons led by two points at the end of the third quarter before Urbana outscored them by 11 points in the fourth quarter to win the game.
If Urbana wins against Graham, the Hillclimbers will play fourth-seed Bellefontaine (14-8) in a second-round game. After that, the winner will likely take on second-seed Tippecanoe (16-6) in a sectional final.
Braves makes quick work of Tecumseh in de-facto Kenton Trail title game.
SPRINGFIELD — Shawnee head coach Chris McGuire wondered if it could happen. Braves’ players doubted it could.
After losing four-straight games early in the season, Shawnee sat at 4-4. Two of the losses came within a week’s time to conference teams in Bellefontaine and Tippecanoe. With six conference games left to play and two conference losses, a league championship looked doubtful.
“We were kind of searching there,” McGuire said. “We’d lost four-straight games… and were coming off of two league losses. Guys were kind of down thinking that they’d loss the chance to win the league with two losses like that.”
Four Springfield players scored in double digits in the Wildcats’ 61-46 win.
SPRINGFIELD — You shouldn’t fall asleep behind the wheel of a car, and you shouldn’t fall asleep midway through a basketball game, even with a lead. If you do, the lead may slip away.
Springfield head coach Isiah Carson said his Wildcats fell asleep last night in the third quarter of a nonconference game against Shawnee at Springfield High Gymnasium. Springfield led Shawnee by 13 points at halftime, but the Braves’ cut Springfield’s lead to six points with thirty seconds left in the third.
Springfield’s period of sleep turned out to be no more than a power nap, however. The Wildcats awoke in a big way and went on to outscore Shawnee 18-6 over the next four minutes. The run helped Springfield secure a 63-47 win.
