Barr-Reeve wins 2nd straight sectional crown

ELNORA — An accomplishment that once seemed like a certainty, became a reality Monday night.

No. 1 Barr-Reeve (23-1) won its second straight Class A sectional championship Monday night at the Cougar Den by beating Vincennes Rivet (11-13), 54-31 behind a game-high 19 points from senior Micah Bullock and 11 from junior Duncan Roy.

From the moment the first state boys basketball poll was released, the Vikings had a target on its back as the No. 1 team in Class A. Barr-Reeve has lost just once in 24 games and now gets to move on to the regional Saturday at Loogootee after winning its second straight sectional championship and did so both times by a margin of 10 or more points.

“The sectional is what you start talking about back in the summer time,” said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. “Once you win that, you get to keep playing and anything can happen. It’s been a special group, they’ve played so hard all year and so hard at the defensive end. I’m really excited for them.”

Vincennes Rivet opened the game like a team that thought it could pull a gigantic upset and its fans played into that confidence. Barr-Reeve opened with baskets from Roy and Logan James to take a 4-0 lead. Rivet’s Collin Wirth’s three-point play cut the Barr-Reeve lead to 4-3. Bullock and Rivet’s Tanner Thomas hit matching 3-pointers to put the score at 7-6. Barr-Reeve answered the Patriots intense play with a 10-2 to end the quarter with a 17-8 lead. Roy outscored Rivet by himself, 9-8.

“Duncan (Roy) has some athletic ability and can score the ball,” Hughes said. “When you have five guys on the floor that can score the basketball, you’re awfully hard to guard.”

Barr-Reeve opened the second quarter on a 7-2 run to extend the lead to 24-11. Neither Rivet or Barr-Reeve could find a rhythm for the rest of the half, but the Vikings led 26-15 at halftime. Roy led all scorers with nine points at the half and Tanner Thomas led Rivet with six points on a pair of 3-pointers.
