Vikings fall at Rivet

VINCENNES — In a battle of two of the best girls basketball programs, in Southwestern Indiana, Vincennes Rivet prevailed on a night when Barr-Reeve just couldn’t get over the hump.

Class A No. 3 Vincennes Rivet defeated No. 6 Barr-Reeve 50-43 Monday night behind 17 points from senior Lauren Herman and 14 from Bailey Dreiman to hand the Vikings their second straight loss after Thursday’s 48-29 defeat at the hands of North Knox.

Barr-Reeve seemed to be fighting up an uphill battle all night and after four straight points from Herman and Dreiman, the Patriots had a 43-32 lead and the Vikings looked like it might be done. The Vikings responded with an 8-0 that featured three free throws from Olivia Carroll, a 3-pointer from Jenna Knepp, who led the Vikings with 14 points and a a layup from Tiara Kenney to cut the lead to 43-39 with 5:10 to play.

After Knepp missed the front end of a one-and-one, Bailey Niehaus split two free throws and Carroll made a pair from the foul line to cut the Rivet lead to three. Dreiman and Carroll traded baskets to keep the deficit at three, but that’s as close as the Vikings could get. Makala Emmons knocked down two free throws and Herman made a layup to finish off Barr-Reeve.

“They made some big plays and we hung around,” said Barr-Reeve coach Mark Holt. “You just can’t get buried in one of those big Rivet runs. We always stayed in contact, I’m not disappointed in this game.”

The game opened to a sloppy first quarter as the teams combined to commit 12 turnovers. The Vikings and Patriots had four lead changes, but Rivet led 14-10 at the end of the quarter behind eight points from Kelsey Ivers and two 3-pointers. Barr-Reeve had two points apiece from Knepp, Hannah Bullock, Tracy Graber, Tiara Kenney and Carroll.
