Greenville JV gets double digit MVL win over the Sidney Yellow Jackets
GREENVILLE – The Green Wave JV defeated the visiting Sidney Yellow Jackets JV 51-41 in a MVL matchup.
“Whenever we win it’s always a team effort,” said Greenville JV coach, Matt Hamilton, “and we did it tonight.”
Greenville took the opening quarter 13-9 with freshman Eric Brenner hitting for 7-points along with 4-points from freshman Drew Hamilton and a basket from Chase Drew.
“We knew we had to play right away,” Hamilton stated. “We dropped a few in a row so we had to come out and redeem ourselves and we always have to take care of the home floor.”
Sidney rebounded to win the second quarter by a single point, 13-12 sending the teams to the break with the Wave holding a slim 25-22 advantage. Brenner canned two 3-pointers, Haiden Livingston added 4-points and TJ Barr was good for a basket.
The Green Wave more than doubled up on the Yellow Jackets 13-6 in period No. 3 with Livingston lighting up the nets for 11-points including a trey and Hamilton going 2-2 at the line giving Greenville a 38-28 double digit lead with one quarter to play.
The teams matched 13-point fourth quarter scores with Greenville winning the Miami Valley League junior varsity game by a 10-point margin. Benner had 6-fourth quarter points, Chick 3-points and Hamilton and Barr each with a basket.
“We had some guys aggressive on shooting tonight and also aggressive on rebounding the basketball especially on the offensive end to give us some second looks which always helps,” said Coach Hamilton.
Brenner led Greenville and all scorers with a game high 19-points and Livingston finished with 15-points for the Wave.
