SPENCER -- The Owen Valley Patriots had no answer for the inside presence of 6'5 junior Julie Whitted who tallied 22 points, 12 rebounds a three blocks in barely more than two quarters of action in a 64-41 victory for the Knights.

The Knights led by as many as 34 early in the fourth quarter before Northview's bench saw the court for the remainder of the game.

"Julie (Whitted) looked good tonight," said Northview coach Bob Medworth. "Her shot's much improved and she's being aggressive and hustling."

Whitted hustled her way to 12 first quarter points as Northview burst out to a 21-7 lead while holding the Patriots to three-of-11 shooting in the opening quarter.

After playing evenly in the second period as Whitted got a long rest, the Knights came out flying in the second half.

Whitted scored on back-to-back possessions and the Knights got baskets from Casey Challandes and Lexee Hayes on a drive as Northview got an 8-0 run to open the half.

Trailing 49-23 got a a brief burst from Samantha Stahl with the Northview reserves in to finish the quarter. Her 22 points tied Whitted for game-high honors, but Whitted, along with three other Northview starters watched their teammates from the bench for much of the fourth period.

"I was really pleased with our effort tonight," commented Medworth. "Jen (Gregg), Lexee (Hayes) and Casey (Challandes) all did a good job defensively tonight. We wanted to get some other kids in tonight and help them get their confidence up."

Every Northview player that played, scored in the contest that advanced the Knights to 10-6 overall and 3-1 in the WIC.
