Vikings down White River Valley with a victory of 19-1

MONTGOMERY - Barr-Reeve moved to 19-1 on the season with a Tuesday night victory over White River Valley (7-10) at Kavanaugh Kourt. In what was already a good week for the Vikings, who cracked the top 20 in Indiana’s one class basketball poll for the first time in years, Barr-Reeve appears to be playing its best basketball at the end of the season.

Micah Bullock showed early that the Vikings were not in any mood to let the Wolverines hang around. A steal and layup, two free throws, and an emphatic steal and dunk opened a 13-0 lead. The Vikings ended the quarter on top at 17-4.

The visitors found a little life in the second quarter as senior guard Trent Myers knocked in back-to-back triples to trim the Viking lead to 26-17. Any thoughts of an extended Wolverine run were ended by a Bullock trey and a driving layup by Logan James to end the half with a 31-17 advantage.

The Vikings quickly moved the lead to 40-21 on back to back triples by Duncan Roy and Chris Wittmer. More offense from James, Bullock, and Wagler allowed the Vikings to lead 48-30 after three quarters.

Barr-Reeve had one more offensive outburst in the fourth quarter, and a quick 9-2 run gave the Vikes their largest margin of the night at 57-32. From that point, Hughes emptied his bench, and the Vikings played ball control on their way to a 59-41 victory.

Barr-Reeve once again had a balanced offensive attack led by Wagler and Bullock’s game-high 16 points. Logan James joined the duo in double figures with 13, and Logan Lengacher pitched in eight off of the bench.

The Vikings will wrap up their regular season on Friday night with a home contest against Bloomfield. Junior Varsity action tips off at 6 p.m.
