GREENVILLE – The Green Wave dropped a 59-36 Wednesday night MVL game to the visiting Piqua Indians.

“The kids keep working hard,” said Greenville coach, Bobby Jones. “We just keep chipping away.”

Piqua took the opening quarter 16-9 with three Wave putting 3 points each on the board including 3-pointers each from Reed Hanes and Jace Bunger and a basket and free throw from DJ Zimmer.

Greenville continued to struggle getting the ball to fall including the charity stripe where the team would go 1-8 as the visitors took period No. 2 by a 17-7 score sending the teams to the break with Piqua leading 33-16.

Greenville looked like a different team in the third as the team would outscore the Indians 14-10 putting a strong defense on display.

“Million Bryant was a bright spot defensively for us coming off the bench in the third defending against Piqua’s D. Roberts,” said Coach Jones. “He did a real nice job defensively.”

DJ Zimmer paced the third with 9 points, Bunger added a trey and Alex Baumgardner chipped in a basket making a 43-30 game with one final period to play.

The Wave struggled in fourth quarter play with Piqua taking the final quarter 16-6 to give the Indians the MVL win.

Million Bryant was a bright spot defensively for us coming off the bench in the third defending against Piqua’s D. Roberts,” said Coach Jones.

D. Roberts led Piqua and all scorers with a game high 18 points while DJ Zimmer was pacing Greenville with 14 points on the night.
