Vikings improve to 6-0

MONTGOMERY — The Barr-Reeve boys basketball team entered Friday¹s Blue Chip conference tussle with Shoals without a loss, and after 32 minutes that was unchanged.

The Class A No. 3 Vikings (6-0, 2-0 Blue Chip) defeated the Jug Rox 71-32 Friday evening at Kavanaugh Kourt behind 21 points from junior Micah Bullock.

Bullock opened the game with a three-point play, which was answered by a three-pointer from Shoals senior guard Dylan Erwin, but the early tie was short lived.

The Vikings responded by outscoring Shoals 17-2 the rest of the quarter.

Barr-Reeve was bolstered by Bullock¹s offense, as he scored 10 of his 21 points in the opening quarter pacing the Vikings to a 20-5 advantage after the first eight minutes.

Shoals (1-5, 0-2 Blue Chip) didn¹t help themselves in the early going by missing all four of its free throw attempts.

In the second quarter, the Vikings added to its lead by winning the second eight minutes 14-6 to take a 34-11 lead into halftime.

After Bullock led the way in the first quarter, sophomore Addison Wagler scored six of his 13 points in the second quarter to pace the balanced Vikings offense.

"I was really pleased with our interior passing, and how we shared the ball, and found the open person," said Barr-Reeve head coach Bryan Hughes. "As long as you¹ve got guys on the floor that will do that, and you play at the defensive end, you're going to be a pretty good ball club. In the third quarter, the Vikings extended its lead some more by winning the quarter 24-10 to take a 58-21 lead into the final eight minutes of regulation.

Bullock was back attacking on the offensive end by scoring nine points in the quarter.

Hughes was able to get some extended playing time for his reserves in the fourth quarter against an overmatched Shoals squad.

Shoals forward Jon Sherfick managed only six points, four of which came in the fourth quarter.

"I liked our attitude tonight," Hughes said. "We obviously out matched them tonight, and I thought that our guys learned a little bit from earlier in the year. We wanted to come out and play hard, and defensively we put out a nice effort and did a nice job of keeping the ball out of (Jon) Sherfick's hands." While Hughes recognizes the schedule the Vikings have faced through its first six games has been less demanding, it has a tougher schedule on the horizon.

That starts with Northeast Dubois' visit to Kavanaugh Kourt next Friday.

Hughes said the talented Jeep¹s will come into Montgomery highly motivated after the Vikings took them apart 78-42 at their place last season.

"The positive is a lot of guys are getting a lot of minutes now, and if they are called upon later on they have some had some court time," Hughes said. "They (Northeast Dubois) are going to come in with some really nice athletes. It's going to be a bit different than some of the games we've been playing. I told our guys they are going to come in with 6'4, 6'3, 6'3. We saw them this summer at camp where we were at, we never played them, but got to watch them. It's going to be a tough test. You put on top of that what we did to them at their place last year, and believe me all week that will be talked. It's going to be a fun Friday night."
