Vikings dominate Lakers, move to 15-1 on season

JASONVILLE - Barr-Reeve moved its season record to 15-1 on the season with a convincing 70-37 win at Shakamak on Saturday night.

Although the Vikings entered with the sparkling record and ranking, Coach Bryan Hughes still challenged his team in the locker room before the opening tip against the 3-12 Lakers.

“We talked about how they had played last night, and we wanted to be the most energetic team in the gym, and I thought we did a good job of that tonight.”

The Vikings passed Hughes’ pop quiz with flying colors, and forced Shakamak into five early turnovers, and a quick 13-2 lead. Micah Bullock dialed from long distance three times in the opening quarter, Barr-Reeve fronted after the first quarter at 18-6.

The second quarter saw the pair of 6’5 juniors take control for the Vikings. Duncan Roy knocked in a triple and another shot, and Addison Wagler began to assert his dominance in the post. Wagler finished an old-fashion three point play on his way to a game high 18 points, and the Vikings moved their advantage to 36-15 at halftime.

Barr-Reeve showed why they are considered one of the best defensive teams in the state as they held the Lakers to just two third quarter points, and also used a 31-17 rebounding advantage on the night to limit any possibilities of Shakamak scoring second chance points.

Leading 47-17 heading to the fourth quarter, Hughes rested his starters, and the reserves, who had earlier moved the Barr-Reeve Junior Varsity record to 12-0 with a 42-14 win, coasted the Vikings to the final margin at 70-37.

Along with Addison Wagler’s 18 points, Micah Bullock chipped in with 14. Duncan Roy finished with nine points and nine rebounds, and Connor Swartzentruber added eight off the bench.

Barr-Reeve returns to action on Thursday night when they travel to South Knox (12-4), a game with huge Blue Chip Conference ramifications.

Hughes knows that a big test awaits his Vikings. “They’ve got good personnel at all of their positions. We have to go to their place, and I’m sure it will be a packed environment, and those are the games that get you tournament ready.”

Junior Varsity action tips off on Thursday night at South Knox at 6 p.m.
