Vikings take down Spartans for 7th straight win, 58-43

VINCENNES — The Barr-Reeve boys basketball team faced its biggest test in more than a month Thursday night and it passed with flying colors for its seventh straight win.

The Class A No. 1 Vikings (16-1) defeated Class 2A No. 13 South Knox (12-5) 58-43 Thursday night at the Spartan Dome behind a balanced offensive attack that featured five players in double figures.

Barr-Reeve got early balance from its offense as the Vikings got four points from Addison Wagler, three from Micah Bullock and two points each from Duncan Roy and Logan James in the first quarter. South Knox's Isiah Stafford scored six points in the opening quarter to keep the Spartans close, but Barr-Reeve led 11-8 after one quarter.

Barr-Reeve scored the first six points of the second quarter on two baskets from James and a second effort put back from reserve forward Logan Lengacher to force a South Knox timeout from coach Mark Rohrer. After the two teams traded baskets, Stafford scored four straight points to cut the lead to 19-14. Micah Bullock pushed the lead back seven with a layup. Spartan forward Andrew Scott cut the lead to four — the closest South Knox had been since the beginning of the third quarter — with a 3-pointer. James answered with a trey of his own and Duncan Roy's putback in the final 10 seconds of the half gave Barr-Reeve a 26-17 lead at halftime.

"I thought we had some sloppy turnovers early on, but we talked about that at halftime," said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. "As far as a group of kids that were focused in on the defensive end and being aware of personnel and who we were guarding, I thought we did a really nice job."

In the second half, the Viking defense eliminated the offensive threat of Stafford and after 10 first half points and started to separate itself. Barr-Reeve outscored the Spartans 17-12 as the Vikings continued to get scoring from multiple players. Chris Wittmer and Micah Bullock had five points apiece, Wagler had four and James had two more points. Stafford was limited to his only bucket of the second half, but Andrew Scott scored seven of the Spartans' 12 third quarter points.
