The 2013-14 high school boys basketball season was far from the greatest in Dearborn County history.
When the three varsity teams in the county tally a combined 24-43 record, no one’s likely to be expanding the trophy cases.

But the light at the end of the tunnel may not be a hurtling locomotive. Out of necessity for all three county schools, a new influx of talent was revealed – hopefully, to pay off in lots more victories next season.
Register Publications’ 2014 All-Dearborn County boys basketball honors team leads with junior Co-Players of the Year, both lanky guard/forward types with multiple skills.

RICHMOND, Ind. – No. 1-ranked Greensburg erased a double-digit deficit against No. 2 Guerin Catholic to win its way back into the Class 3A state championship game Saturday, 74-67.

Now 27-1 and winner of 14 in a row since their January loss to Madison, Pirates weathered a storm of Golden Eagles three-pointers, which had them trailing 20-10 and 26-16 in the first half.

But guard Macy Holdsworth, one of nine Greensburg seniors, stepped up with a pair of treys late in the first half to help cut the margin to five by haltime, 29-24.

Pirates’ vaunted full-court pressure brought home the Class 3A South Semistate title at Richmond’s 7,000-seat Tiernan Center, limiting Guerin (22-4) to 10 fourth-quarter points.
