Vikings run past Cardinals on Senior Night


In the fourth quarter, the Vikings’ offensive assault continued. Wittmer, Bullock and Duncan Roy hit a 3-pointer each to push the lead to 61-31. After a Jared Myers basket, Wittmer hit his fourth trey of the night, Connor Swartzentruber and senior Ryan Knepp both split a pair of free throws to close out the 33-point victory. The Vikings hit 11 3-pointers. Bullock had 18 to lead Barr-Reeve, Wagler had 15, Wittmer added 14, Roy had nine, James had five, Knepp added four and Swartzentruber had one point.

We accomplished two things tonight — winning 20 games in the season and an undefeated home court,” Hughes said.

With the capacity crowd in an uproar from the Senior Night celebration, the Vikings opened the game on an 11-3 run before Bloomfield could breathe. Brandon Van Sant’s layup cut the lead to six points, but back-to-back buckets from Logan James and Micah Bullock expanded the lead to 16-7 after one quarter.

Bloomfield’s Clayton Burch opened the second quarter with a 3-pointer to cut the Barr-Reeve lead to six points, but the Vikings responded with an 8-0 run to push the lead to 24-12. Burch scored five straight points, followed by four straight from Van Sant to cut the lead to 24-21. Addison Wagler responded with a three-point play with 46 seconds to play in the first half to push the lead back to six points.

The Vikings went into halftime with a 29-23 lead as Burch led all scorers with 10 points and Bullock had nine.

The four seniors — Bullock, Logan Lengacher, Knepp and Jon McMullen got a rousing ovation as they left the floor late in the fourth quarter in their final game in front of the home fans of Barr-Reeve.

The Vikings will take the court again at the Class A Sectional 63 Tuesday night against North Daviess at the Cougar Den. Barr-Reeve defeated North Daviess 68-53, Jan. 25 in the Buggy Bowl game at Kavanaugh Kourt.

“We have practice tomorrow morning at 10 and we’ll start right away,” Hughes said. “We just have Saturday and Monday, two days of preparation and practice. Then we’re in the state tournament and you have to win to play again. They have gotten better and we have gotten a lot better.”
