INDIANAPOLIS (www.incnow.tv) - Bryant McIntosh, Ryan Welage and Colin Rigney combined for all twelve points in overtime to push Greensburg past Concordia Lutheran 73-70 in the IHSAA 3A Boys Basketball State Championship game Saturday night.

Concordia at one point led by 12 points, and never trailed in regulation.

Josh Eggold's Cadets wound up 23-5, and had four players in double figures, led by D.J. McCall with 17, while Ryan Gross had 14, Thomas Starks 12 with 8 rebounds, and Brian Gremaux with 11.

"We got in some foul trouble," Eggold says. "That really limited how aggressively that we could pursue the ball.

Both McCall and Gremaux fouled out in overtime.

"That's kind of been my whole story this whole postseason," Gremaux says about his foul trouble. "I want to come in, step up and help my teammates."

"Win or lose, we stick together," Starks says. "The brotherhood and the relationship I have with these guys is something we'll share for a lifetime."

Starks was honored as the 3A Mental Attitude Award winner after the game. Like the Cadets' state finals run, his acceptance speech will long be remembered at Concordia.
