Spears finished with game-high 21 points, nine of those coming from the line.
“When you have someone on the other team like Spears, it takes a maximum effort to contain him,” Lynch said.
Brownsburg’s Tyler Houston drew the unenviable task of guarding Spears for a large part of the game and limited Spears to 10 points from the floor. Houston also had a big second quarter and scrapped for loose rebounds and forced three Martinsville turnovers.
Jordache Mavunga and Dalton Vachon also provided Brownsburg solid minutes in the paint on both ends of the floor.
“We have a lot of guys that don’t stat all that much and may play few seconds, three minutes or sometimes even more, but they are the glue that holds us together,” Lynch said. “We’ve major contributions from a lot of guys this season.”
Brownsburg faces Pike in the second game of regional action at noon at Southport on Saturday. Brownsburg defeated Pike 64-50 earlier this season on Dec. 14. Pike bested Southport in overtime of the Ben Davis sectional to advance.
With six seniors on the squad, Brownsburg wants to make sure they leave everything on the court and if the Bulldogs continue to play as a team, they have a chance to make a deep postseason run.
“It’s an incredible feeling and I owe it all to my teammates,” Lucas said.
