Freshmen lead Wolfpack sweep of Harlem

Greenbrier freshman, Abbey Steele
Some high school coaches don't play freshmen. I believe in playing the best players. Greenbrier's girls and boys coaches apparently agree.

Freshman Abbey Steele scored 14 points, draining 4 three pointers, to help lead the Lady Wolfpack to an opening game 58-36 win at Harlem. Steel and sophomore Natalie Wilson, who led the Wolfpack with 15 points, helped coach Stefanie Basinger's team begin its rebuilding process after losing three key seniors.

Greenbrier freshman Richard Crawford
In the second game, another Greenbrier freshman, Richard Crawford, scored 5 points on back-to-back fourth quarter possessions to help give coach Casey Heckathorn's Wolfpack its first win of the new season. Crawford's spurt silenced a furious Harlem run that cut a 17 point Greenbrier lead all the way to 2 late in the fourth quarter.

Seniors Jerrod Farrell and AJ Hawes led Greenbrier with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Harlem's Kanez Dunn led all scorers with 24 points.

I'll see both Wolfpack teams next Friday at the Wolfpack Tip-Off Challenge.

Another league has tipped off. Welcome, basketball season!
