No. 1 Barr-Reeve blows past Loogootee



"I thought our guys started the game ready to play and to get out to a lead like that on the road is big," said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. "Defensively I thought we did a nice job of getting up in them and getting a couple steals and then we got some transition stuff, which is important."

Bell continued his onslaught by scoring all 10 Loogootee points in the third quarter, but the Vikings kept firing as they got four points apiece in the quarter from Micah Bullock and Addison Wagler to keep the lead at a sizable margin at 41-22 through three quarters. Hughes was able to use some of his reserves in the fourth quarter to finish off the 24-point victory to help the Vikings bounce back from their 51-40 loss Jan. 11 to Elizabethtown (Ky.) as part of the Indiana-Kentucky Challenge Cup at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.

Wittmer and Wagler led the Vikings with 12 points each, while Bullock and Logan James added nine points apiece. Schwartzentruber and Logan Lengacher combined for 11 points off the benghc and Duncan Roy had two points. Bell was the most consistent Loogootee offensive player with 19 points. Gabe Nolley and Dylan Street each hit a 3-pointer.

One of the keys to the game coming in was to limit Loogootee's three-point shooting and especially guard Ryan Howell, who finished with just two points. Howell scored 18 points on six 3-pointers in a loss last week to North Daviess and Hughes said he talked all week about making sure their shooters didn't have as much room to operate would be important to winning Saturday night.

"I really liked how our guys took the scouting report and what we talked about all week and how we wanted to guard them and they went out and did it," Hughes said. "The Howell kid had come off some really good shooting performances behind the arc and I think really Chris Wittmer understands how to play on that end of the floor."
