Barr-Reeve rolls past North Knox

MONTGOMERY — Almost every Barr-Reeve basketball fan can tell you the three big games the Vikings circle at the beginning of each season.

The friendly opening tussle against Washington at the Hatchet House, the family feud that is the Buggy Bowl against North Daviess, then the bloodbath that is the Loogootee rivalry.

In order to play in big games however, sometimes a team must take care of business in advance.  That's exactly what the Vikings (5-0) did in dispatching of North Knox (2-4), 63-14, at Kavanaugh Kourt on Tuesday night.

Although it may have appeared the Vikings were heavy favorites heading into the contest, things didn't start out that way.  North Knox packed in a 3-2 zone defense, and seemed content to run its delay game in the first quarter.

Barr-Reeve was in front at 7-6 before freshman Logan James hit a driving layup just ahead of the quarter buzzer to move the lead to 9-6.

From that point on, the Vikings exploded and the Warriors went into hibernation.

Brandon Wagler and Micah Bullock opened the second quarter with three-point baskets to move the lead to 15-6.  The game was still close midway through the second quarter with Barr-Reeve in front at 20-12, and then the explosion happened.

A 33-0 run by the Vikings which spanned 12 minutes gave Barr-Reeve a 53-12

lead.   Micah Bullock knocked in a pair of long jumpers, Brandon Wagler

canned two triples, and Addison Wagler came alive with multiple buckets from the post, but also made several deft passes for easy Viking buckets.

Every Viking bench player saw significant time in the fourth quarter as Barr-Reeve was content to milk the clock on the offensive end to secure the

63-14 final score.

Even after the slow offensive start, Hughes was happy with the effort. "I thought our guys were ready to play, and this was one of the games where we wanted to take care of business. Anytime you give up just two point in a half, you know guys are playing hard."  The thing that pleased Hughes the most was that 11 players from the Vikings roster saw action during the run, and there was no drop off in effort or production.

"I've always felt like the players push the buttons, and if they do the job, then they will get to play.  I feel like I have 11 players that can play on any given night."
