Greenwood boys basketball coach Bruce Hensley knew his undersized Woodmen were going to need scrappy play and solid outside shooting to compete against bigger opponents.

In their home-opener Tuesday night, Greenwood came up with plenty of heart, but not the shots, falling to Perry Meridian, 59-24.

The Falcons, playing behind their tall and talented trio of 6-foot-6 senior John Beineke, 6-5 junior Collin Timmons and 6-5 sophomore Dylan Windler, dominated the smaller Woodmen inside and displayed a nice shooting touch from the perimeter in improving to 2-0.

No Greenwood player is taller than 6-3.

It was Windler’s outside touch that put the Falcons ahead early. He came off the bench in a rugged first quarter to hit three-straight 3-pointers and push Perry Meridian to a 14-7 lead.
