Northview freshmen earn tournament championship

Tuesday, January 27, 2004

Northview's freshman boys basektball team continued their winning streak with a pair of victories and the North Montgomery Tournament title on Saturday morning.

The Knights took home the championship with a dominant final three quarters of play against the host Chargers in the title game.

Against North Montgomery in the title game, the Knights fell behind by a point through the first quarter but then clamped down the defensively on the Chargers to shut them out in the second period. The resulting defensive burst by the Knights turned the one point first quarter deficit into a 12-point halftime advantage.

The Knights didn't hold back in the second half, holding the Chargers to just 16 points on the way to a 57-29 victory and the tournament title that boosted Northview's season mark to 11-4 overall.

In the title game, Josiah Brock, who was limited to just six minutes of action in the first game because of foul trouble, exploded for 21 points and Brodee Miller chipped in 11 for the Knights.

Brinn Meunier and Matt Stuckey each had six points in the game along with Joe Evinger.

On their way to the title, the Knights opened up with a 59-32 victory over South Vermillion in the tournament opener.

Northview opened strong in the game and never looked back, taking an 18-7 lead through one quarter of play.

Again, defensive pressure was the key as Northview limited the Wildcats to just 14 second half points on the way to a 27-point victory.

Brodee Miller led the way with a 19 point afternoon while Stuckey also hit double figures with 10. Ryan Brown added nine, Meunier eight, Brock added six and Evinger seven in the win.

The Knights game with Greencastle on Monday night was postponed due to inclement weather. No make-up date has been set at this point.
