Barr-Reeve falls short in state title game

Bullock wins Trester award

INDIANAPOLIS — The opportunity to win a state championship doesn't come around every year and nobody knows that more than Barr-Reeve.

The Vikings (26-2) let a 10-point fourth quarter lead slip in away in Saturday's 70-66 overtime loss to Marquette Catholic (20-6) in the Class A State Championship.

Barr-Reeve looked to be in prime position to win the school's first basketball state championship, but the Vikings couldn't put away the Blazers. With 5:30 to play in regulation, the Vikings led 53-43 and were in complete control. A Ryan Fazekas triple, followed by a two-pointer cut the lead to five and the comeback had begun. Both teams held a 10-point lead in the second half. Over the final five-and-a-half minutes, Marquette Catholic outscored the Vikings 19-9 to force overtime.

"It was a game of spurts," said Barr-Reeve coach Bryan Hughes. "We just came up a little short. As I sit here, there were a few end of game situations where you always second guess yourself. I'll do that for days."

In overtime, the Vikings made just 1-of-8 shots, but still had a chance to tie it in the final half minute. Fazekas blocked Addison Wagler's potential game tying shot and Braxton Miller scored a layup in transition to ice the victory. It was ironic that Fazekas' defense would finish off Barr-Reeve, because his offense was the real story in the game. Fazekas scored a game-high 34 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

In the final minutes, the supporting cast was able to pick up the slack and help Fazekas get the team to overtime. Malcolm Reed had five points including a 3-pointer, which cut the lead to 57-55 and JoVonte Peals had seven points during the run, including the 3-pointer that tied the game at 60.
