Cougars rout Saints, move into title game

Greenwood Christian Academy will play for its first boys basketball sectional championship tonight, but the Cougars think they cleared their biggest psychological hurdle in Wednesday night’s first-round win.

They played aggressively and without worries in Friday night’s Class A Edinburgh Sectional semifinal, racing to a 19-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and never looking back in a 77-52 win against Lutheran.

Greenwood Christian (17-5) will face Waldron at 7:30 p.m. tonight for the championship and the right to play in the Martinsville Regional on March 15. The Cougars defeated the Mohawks 60-47 during a Feb. 7 regular-season matchup at Greenwood Christian.
