Keep in mind that Hephzibah may be the best team in the state. They are currently 15-0.
Greenbrier played without talented junior Melissa Lewis, who averages a double-double. Also, backup point guard Sarah Oland did not play because of an ankle injury. The game was much closer than the final score.
Greenbrier trailed by 12 points through three quarters (59-47), but were outscored 32-12 in the fourth quarter. Michelle Sweic continues to shine, scoring 22 points against Hephzibah. She is now averaging 17.9 points. Sweic is really coming into her own - and remember, she is only a sophomore.
The Greenbrier boys team also learned something in a loss to Hephzibah. The 'Pack led by eight points heading into the fourth quarter, only to be out-scored 14-4 in the final stanza and lost 50-48.
Hephzibah is a solid team having already beaten Butler last year's AAAA state runner-up.
Even though Greenbrier lost, their performance proved that with Eugene Rogers and Rich Poythress back, they will be a team to watch late in the season.
