NEW PALESTINE — When the New Palestine Dragons found themselves in a second-half hole against Greenwood, the upperclassmen needed to seize the evening.

With the help of a sophomore, they did.

Michael Morris opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer that gave the Dragons a one-point lead, one they’d never relinquish in an eventual 53-50 victory over Greenwood.

Morris and fellow senior Justin Ikerd hit 3s and sophomore Ryan Curry hit both a 3-pointer and a three-shot free throw chance in a 12-point run. It put the Dragons up 43-33 to start the fourth quarter.

NP had to stave off a late run, but held the lead to bring about a Senior Night celebration.

The Dragons finished the regular season 15-5, their second straight 15-win season.

“It’s awesome to go out on top, finish our regular season careers with a win on our own floor and keep the momentum going into sectional. Hopefully we can go into sectional and get a win there,” Morris said.
