Sectional tips off Tuesday night


“It’s a tough draw, but I think we’ll have some pretty good momentum by Saturday night if we can get there,” said Barr-Reeve coach Mark Holt.

The nature of the sectional is that one team will be more comfortable on the floor than the others and the Vikings did not play at Jack Butcher Arena this year. Holt said in terms of game planning, his team has to focus on the task at hand and not worry about a sectional rematch from last year’s two-point win over the Cougars.

“Getting to play there Tuesday night and get our feet wet and if we play well and are fortunate enough to advance, you have a game on that floor and you already have those sectional jitters out when you head into Friday night,” Holt said. “North Daviess has to sit around and wait a week, but if North Daviess wants to they can sit around and just prepare for Barr-Reeve, while we have to worry about Loogootee before we can even think about North Daviess.”

As usual, Barr-Reeve’s offensive production starts at the top with Jenna Knepp. The senior guard can score rebound and find her teammates for easy baskets as well as any guard in the area. Teaming Knepp in the back court with Hannah Bullock and Olivia Carroll and Graber and Tiara Kenney on the front line has made the Vikings a fearful match up for any coach.

The Cougars (16-3) experience in last year’s sectional tournament was short and bittersweet. North Daviess played about as well as it possibly could offensively, but the Cougars weren’t able to pull out a victory against Barr-Reeve at Kavanaugh Kourt in the first round game. Then juniors Meghan Knepp and Sabra Smith combined to hit 10 3-pointers and 46 points in the 52-50 loss. North Daviess coach Ron Knepp said his team is looking forward to a possible rematch Friday night with Barr-Reeve.
