Busy night of hoops: Undersized Greenwood struggles

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.
