No. 4 Orr advanced Friday night to its second consecutive supersectional appearance, but perhaps the biggest highlight came in the last 1 minute, 49 seconds when standout senior Tyquone Greer entered the Class 3A sectional final at Westinghouse.
Greer was shot Sunday while attending an early morning party and wore white tape around his left while sitting on the bench for most of the Spartans’ 50-30 rout of No. 10 Fenwick.
“I didn’t expect that [playing],” Greer said. “I knew there was pain. I wanted to put on my jersey. It could be my last time.”
Without Greer, the top-seeded Spartans (24-4) rolled in the second half after leading 22-20 at the intermission. Sire Carroll (seven rebounds), a 6-foot-7 senior, scored 11 of his 16 points in the third quarter, including three consecutive 3-pointers in a span of 1 1/2 minutes.
Carroll outscored Fenwick’s entire team (eight points) in the quarter.
“It was confidence, man,” Carroll said. “We played a hell of a game tonight. We are a great team. We needed to step up.”
