GREENFIELD – Size didn’t matter much to the Greenfield boys basketball team Tuesday against Frontier Regional.

The Green Wave controlled the Hampshire League South matchup from the opening tip in a 73-45 victory at Nichols Gymnasium despite giving up a few inches at nearly every position.

“With anybody’s season, the processes that we go through during the season, figuring out what everybody can do, we’re trending in the right place,” Greenfield coach Angelo Thomas said. “Energy and effort. Any high school teenage boy or girl, you give energy and effort and you’ll have a good chance to win the game.”

Greenfield (7-3, 2-3 Hampshire South) opened with an 8-2 run and pushed it to double digits (17-6) with 1 minute, 39 seconds remaining in the first after a Jon Breor layup.

The Green Wave led 38-16 at halftime and stretched their lead as large as 33.

Breor paced Greenfield with 18 points. Jax Campbell hit five 3s to score 15 points, including several early ones that gave Greenfield room to operate. Caleb Thomas added 13 points and Caleb Murray chipped in nine.

Owen Babb led Frontier (6-7, 0-3) with 16 points.
