Rebels' Solid Effort Falls Short At West

MORRISTOWN -- It was one of the strongest games the South Greene boys basketball team has played in 2013. In the end, it still wasn't enough. Morristown West did just enough to hold off any comeback attempt Tuesday night, beating the Rebels 62-47 at Morristown West High School.

"I was really proud of how they played in the second half," South Greene coach Terry Hoese said. "You just can't spot a team 15-16 points. In the first half, I don't know what was wrong. We couldn't make a shot. We couldn't get a rebound. We still played good defense all second half."

South Greene (4-21) was in the game until the final two minutes. The Trojans (11-13) had led since the opening period, but the Rebels would not let them pull away. Each quarter it seemed another South Greene player would step up. In the first it was Logan Tweed, hitting two three pointers and scoring eight of his team's 10 points. In the second it was Bo Woods, hitting threes and drawing fouls. Nick Fillers carried the team in the second half, scoring 13 of his 15 points over the final two periods.

It was a final shot from Fillers, a three-point attempt, that tantalizingly bounced off both sides of the rim before popping out that finally doomed the Rebels in the final minutes of the game. Morristown West led 58-47.

"If that goes, you never know," Hoese said. "He (Fillers) had knocked down two or three before then. We got a good look and got what we were looking for. We shot over 40 percent from three-point tonight. I can't ask for any more than that."

Morristown West did most of its damage inside, with Nathan Cunningham and Jake Logan driving the basket. Cunningham scored 14 points and Logan finished with eight. South Greene stayed in the game thanks to its outside shooting. The Rebels hit eight three-pointers in the game. Woods hit two, finishing with 10 points. Tweed and Fillers both hit three. Tweed scored 11 in the game.

Daniel Lowery finished with nine points.

"As far as our effort, we've been playing better," Hoese said. "Hopefully we can get it going before tournament time."

Hunter Nies scored 13 for Morristown West.

South Greene will get a chance to try to pick up a win against West Greene (2-17, 0-10 District 2-AA) Saturday at 8 p.m.
