Tiger Cubs shooting for sectional crown

With one game left in the regular season for the Greencastle Tiger Cubs, it is hard for the team not to look forward to the Class 2A Sectional 44 Tournament, which will be played at Greencastle. 

The Tiger Cubs (13-9) will open the sectional Feb. 28 against South Putnam, and coach Bryce Rector admits the sectional is "tough with several really good basketball teams."

"Obviously, Parke Heritage, North Putnam and Greencastle are the three teams that come into sectional play with above .500 records, and are all very capable of winning the sectional. We were able to avoid Parke Heritage and North Putnam on the first night of play, which is nice, but we still have to be ready for South Putnam. We have beaten the Eagles twice, and I always think it's difficult to beat a team three times in one year and they gave us everything we wanted in the Putnam County Classic, so we are going to have to be ready to play on Wednesday night. We are going to have to really work to be efficient offensively over the three games of the sectional and limit turnovers and second chance points for the opponent," Rector told the Putnam County Post. 

After opening the season 1-3, Greencastle has had some success this year, along with a few down moments. The Tiger Cubs fell in the final of the county tournament, which they hosted. 

"This season has been filled with ups and downs, but, overall, I feel that we have made improvements as the year has gone on. We had a great month of January and have played well in some games down the stretch. You can see that our team is completely different than it was in November, which is always a great feeling as a coach. I am happy with the progress we have made and am really looking forward to our final regular season game as well as the sectional tournament," Rector said..
