Eastern Greene passes first road test

Friday, December 7, 2012

Eastern Greene had its first road test of the season and the Thunderbirds passed with flying colors as they defeated Brown County 72-49 in a non-conference high school boys basketball game Friday night.

The victory was the fourth in as many games for the Thunderbirds.

"I was pleasantly surprised the way we came out on the road," said EGHS coach Levi Carmichael. "Tyler (Brough) got us started by hitting hit four threes in the first quarter as we led 22-7.

"In our first road game, we hit them in the mouth first. We did a good job of building from there."

Brough made seven triples on his way to a game-high 23 points.

Logan Frye scored 15 points, Nathan Sparks added 14 and Kurtis Stille had a double-double -- 10 points and 11 rebounds.

"We had four guys in double figures, which was good to see," said Carmichael. "Stille and Sparks scored 24 points between them, mostly in the paint which really helps. That really helped Tyler and Logan as we were able to play inside out.

"Kurtis was really active as he grabbed 11 rebounds."

Eastern Greene also won the junior varsity game.

The Thunderbirds will play at North Knox Saturday, staring with the jv at 6 p.m.

"I will be even happier if we sweep these two road games," said Carmichael.
