It was the final weekend of the regular season and the South Greene Rebels ended the season in style. Starting on Friday night, on their Senior Night from Rebel Hill, the Rebels would pull off a sweep of county-rival Chuckey-Doak.
The Lady Rebels were held to only 3 points in the first quarter, but then exploded 72 points combined in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters to put away the Lady Knights 75-37.
Jayden Merriweather would finish with a game-high 26 points along with 7 rebounds and 5 assists while Kiley Collins added 18 points in the win. Earendia Davis would finish with 16 points and 12 rebounds in the loss for the Lady Knights.
The boys game was a classic and one of the best games of the season. Chuckey-Doak controlled the majority of the game maintaining a small lead on the Rebels from the jump all the way until the final minute. On top of that, South Greene had four starters foul out of the game, so head coach Terry Hoese called upon junior Aydan Hawk who stepped up in a big way to hit five free throws to tie the game at 75 in the final minute then drain a mid-range jumpshot at the buzzer to win the game for South Greene 77-75.
Aydan Hawk would finish with a season-high 18 points while Levi Myers would add 16 and Sully Fox with 12 in the South Greene victory. Alex Maupin put on a show for the Black Knights with 26 points while the sharpshooting Tyler Ramsey added 18 in the close loss.
One night later, South Greene would have to get right back to action playing on the road at North Greene for the Huskies' Senior Night. The Lady Huskies would start the game off with the lead, but a tough shooting night would be their downfall as South Greene would get redemption from an earlier loss this season to North Greene earning a hard-fought 63-52 win. Merriweather would again play well finishing with 19 points and 11 rebounds while Kiley Collins would finish with 17 points and a game-high 8 steals.
Brooklyn Anderson would explode for a monster double-double with 23 points and 28 rebounds in the loss. The North Greene Senior Night celebration would follow the girls' game, but that would be the final thing to celebrate for Husky fans on Saturday night.
North Greene could not find their offense on Saturday and would suffer their worst loss of the season falling to the Rebels 69-29. Levi Myers would lead the way for South Greene with 16 points while both Sully Fox and Chase Carter added 12 in the victory.
Both South Greene boys and girls will enter the District Tournament as the #2 seed with their games beginning this coming weekend from Grainger High School. Chuckey-Doak girls will enter as one of the lower two seeds and will take part in the tournament play-in game on Thursday while the boys will finish either 4th or 5th with that to be determined following some make-up games played later tonight.
North Greene will enter their District Tournament as one of the top two seeds following a tiebreaker. The Huskies will play their tournament from Daniel Boone High School beginning on Friday and Saturday.
Full tournament brackets and schedule will be posted to our website once their released later this week.
