WHITELAND — When Greenfield-Central can put 32 minutes together, it can be a scary basketball team.
But until it can begin to do so, results such as Saturday’s 71-60 defeat at Whiteland will likely continue to accumulate.
The Cougars (0-2), who have dropped 21 of their last 24 games over three seasons, caught fire with 25 points in the final 6:06 of the contest. But that came after the Warriors were very comfortably ahead, 57-35.
“We didn’t play with any energy in the first half,” G-C coach Josh Johnson said. “And we didn’t pay any attention to anything that we talked about, such as detail and the scouting report, so I’ve got to do a better job getting the guys ready for games.”
