Barr-Reeve ready for regional

LOOGOOTEE — LOOGOOTEE — For the second year in a row, Barr-Reeve will play in the boys basketball regional at Loogootee, but this time around the Vikings are hoping for two victories.

A year ago, Barr-Reeve (23-1) defeated defending Class A State Champion Loogootee in the sectional at Jack Butcher Arena. A week later, the Vikings couldn’t finish off eventual state champion Borden in a tough 43-42 loss in the regional championship game.

The Vikings will try to atone for last year’s missed opportunity when they meet Trinity Lutheran (16-6) in Saturday’s first game at 10:30 a.m. Northeast Dubois-Lanesville will follow the first game with an approximate tipoff of 12:30 p.m. and the championship game will be at 8 p.m.

It's been 12 months since Barr-Reeve last tasted defeat against a team from Indiana. It was in this regional on this floor in last year's regiona championship. The one-point loss gave the Vikings plenty of motivation going into the summer and nearly the entire team returned this season with exception of Jacob Bledsoe and Brandon Wagler. That plus a No. 1 ranking to start the season has given Barr-Reeve reason to be locked in every night.

"We were a very disappointed basketball team a year ago," said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. "We had a good number of players returning and with the summer we had, I thought we made some noise in the offseason. We had a couple of wins against larger schools, I know it's summertime, but it's still basketball. We were expected to be ranked high, I didn't know if we'd be No. 1 right off the bat. Once you get out of the neighborhood of teams locally that you're familiar with and now we get into some teams we don't know so well and they don't know us so well."
