Last season, Greenfield-Central did not acquire its second victory until Jordan Keener’s last second triple hit nothing but net on Feb. 9 vs. Knightstown.
The Cougars (2-9) broke that barrier down last Saturday with an impressive 56-39 victory over Triton Central.
G-C’s offensive (33.6 to 43.9) and defensive (62.8 to 53.8) per-game averages have progressed in Year 2 of a rebuilding project, but it’s the blue and gold’s improvement on the offensive end that has narrowed its average game margin down to minus-9.9 from minus-29.2 a season ago.
That enhancement comes partly from the 2012-13 unit shooting 40.1 percent as a team, up from the 33.7 mark put up by its predecessor.
Coach Josh Johnson said his team is valuing each offensive opportunity, which has resulted in better shot selection and more open looks.
