Devils Bounce Back With Win Over South Greene

SUN CORRESPONDENT

Still stinging from Saturday's loss to Dobyns-Bennett, the Greeneville High School boys basketball unleashed its fury on South Greene Tuesday night, beating the Rebels 72-31 at South Greene High School.

The Greene Devils (15-7, 8-0 District 2-AA) blasted out of the gate, nearly running South Greene off its own court. The Rebels (3-16, 2-6) managed just four points in the first period while Greeneville scored 22. The Greene Devils opened the game with two three-pointers from Zach Cobble, who finished with 12 in the game.

"Our kids came out with good defensive intensity," Greeneville coach Brad Woolsey said. "One of the things we want to try to focus on over the next couple of weeks is taking care of the boards, defensive rebounding. I felt like they did a decent job of that tonight. Their on-ball defense and some of their help defense was pretty good tonight. We forced some turnovers and that led to some easy looks for us."

Those looks just kept on coming with Landon Duncan and Jacob Cobble taking advantage of them in the lane. Cobble finished with 12 points and Duncan led all scorers with 19.

"He (Duncan) came out like he always does," Woolsey said. "He shoots the balls and makes plays and we need to have his effort to be as good as we can be. He was a huge factor in what went on tonight."

South Greene managed double-digits in only one quarter, the second. While they continually had trouble maintaining possession and grabbing rebounds, they did get a standout performance from Daniel Lowery. Lowery never stopped competing and finished with 10 points.

"Daniel Lowery is one of those guys that's going to play hard, it doesn't matter what the score is," South Greene coach Terry Hoese said. "If you had 10 of him, you'd be alright. I had some other kids play hard too. It wasn't just him, but he's a trooper. He don't like to lose."

Bo Woods scored 11 for the Rebels, hitting three three-pointers. No other South Greene player scored more than three points.

The Greene Devils offense was smooth all the way through. Snatching quick rebounds or knocking steals free, Greeneville easily glided down the floor for one transition basket after another, even with the starters on the bench. Coby Waddell and Taylor Bailey scored six apiece.

"We've got unselfish guys," Woolsey said. "They like to move the ball. That makes our offense goes. It's a beautiful thing when it looks like what they did tonight."

South Greene hosts West Greene (1-13, 0-7) Friday at 8 p.m. Greeneville will play host to Grainger (10-10, 4-3), also at 8 p.m.
