James leads Vikings to regional title



In the second half, Barr-Reeve and Northeast Dubois continued to throw punches back and forth, with neither team giving an inch on each possession. The Vikings held a double digit lead for most of the half, but it felt much closer. Barr-Reeve outscored the Jeeps 12-10 in the third quarter to extend the lead to 47-34 and James had 21 to lead the way. Northeast Dubois punished Barr-Reeve on the boards all night and made every shot inside five feet a challenge, which made James performance even more valuable.

"We needed someone like a Logan James to step up and he did," Hughes said.

Over the final eight minutes, James was 9-of-10 from the foul line to help Barr-Reeve salt away its first regional championship since 2010. Hughes is in his 29th year of coaching high school basketball and in his 22nd at Barr-Reeve and he couldn't recall many performances that could top James' Saturday night.

"Logan James was outstanding," Hughes said. "That may have been one of the best point guard performances in a long time. I just thought he was outstanding and for three quarters he took over when someone needed to take over."

Northeast Dubois was led by Tyler Haas with 19 points, Jacob Gress had 16 and Cameron Riecker added 15 points, but it wasn't enough to overcome James' big night.

James paced the offense with 29 points, but Micah Bullock added 19, Addison Wagler had 14, Chris Wittmer and Connor Swartzentruber had three points each. The Vikings will travel to semistate Saturday with the location unknown. Depending on the winner's of Saturday's regional championship games. The site will be either Richmond or Seymour.

"We've been good, but the only thing that matters is that we get to play again," Hughes said. "All that matters is we get to play next week and we'll try to get that job done and get to Indy."
