Lady Vikings advance past Loogootee

LOOGOOTEE — The Barr-Reeve girls basketball team had one goal Tuesday night — take care of business.

The Vikings (17-3) defeated rival Loogootee (3-17) 71-35 behind a balanced offensive attack Tuesday night in the first round of the Class A Sectional 63 at Jack Butcher Arena.

The Vikings needed nearly two minutes to score its first points, but after Olivia Caroll netted two free throws, Barr-Reeve found its rhythm. Barr-Reeve didn’t allow a point in the game’s first eight minutes on its way to leading 16-0 after one quarter. Tracy Graber led the Vikings with six points, while Jenna Knepp added five of her own and Hannah Bullock hit a 3-pointer.

“We’re a team that likes to press and trap, so we thought in the first game of the sectional, lets try to come out and be solid with our man-to-man defense,” said Barr-Reeve coach Mark Holt. “I thought our girls played a great defensive quarter to hold them to zero points, but the longer the half went, the better we moved the ball on offense. We got people open, delivered the ball on time and our people knocked down shots.”

The second quarter was more of the same for the Lions, but Loogootee was finally able to get on the board with a 3-point play from Christina Ziegler to cut the Barr-Reeve lead to 19-3 with 6:50 to play in the first half. Barr-Reeve increased its lead to 41-9 at halftime with a 25-9 advantage in the second quarter, which gave them a plus-16 differential in each of the first two quarters. Graber led all scorers with 10 points at the half, followed by Carroll with eight and Tiara Kenney with six points.

“We were kind of standing around on offense and didn’t have a whole lot of movement — I don’t think Barr-Reeve did anything extraordinary — we were just tight at the beginning of the game,” said Loogootee coach Chad Wade.
