TERRE HAUTE -- The high school basketball season kicked off on Saturday afternoon with the hoops jamboree at West Vigo High School.

The combination of Northview and Terre Haute South defeated West Vigo and Terre Haute North by a 54-48 count in the contest.

South's Brooke Daugherty and North's Molly Williams were perhaps the most impressive, and emerged healthy, unlike last season when Daugherty tore her anterior cruciate ligament in jamboree action.

Daugherty tallied 10 points in her two quarters of action and showed glimpses of the player that, as a freshman, won All-Vigo County honors.

Meanwhile, Williams was the high scorer in the jamboree, posting 14 points, and going a perfect 3-for-3 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free throw line.

After the Braves hammered West Vigo with a 15-3 first quarter barrage, Northview was nudged out 16-12 by the Patriots in the second period.

Northview rebounded in third quarter play when a Brittney Spugnardi 3-pointer, one of two on the day, earned the Knights a 14-11 win over West Vigo.

The Knights were led in scoring by 6'5 Julie Whitted who had eight points while sophomore guard Lexee Hayes chipped in with seven and Laura McCrea led the way with three rebounds.

McCrea also had a pair of steals for the Knights who had 10 in Saturday's action. Hayes, Whitted and Spugnardi each also had two steals.

Though the Knights struggled a bit with their shooting, going 10-of-23 from the field and just three-of-eight from the line, they also committed the fewest turnovers with nine.

Patriot sophomore Molly Martin topped the rebound list with 10 on Saturday.

Northview will kick off their regular season on Tuesday night at home when they face Mooresville at 6 p.m.
