Northview and Clay City girls receive sectional byes

Monday, January 31, 2005

Clay County girls basketball teams found out what their sectional road will look like on Sunday when the IHSAA made their draws for the postseason.

Both teams got a bit of a good news/bad news proposition with their draws.

Each squad received the bye in the first round of the playoffs but each will face an opponent they have lost to earlier in the season.

At the Mooresville 4A Sectional, Northview will get to watch a pair of teams fall in the first round before donning their own uniform against the host Pioneers on Friday night.

In round one action on Tuesday, Feb. 8, Terre Haute South will face off with Martinsville with Plainfield taking on Terre Haute North.

The Braves (5-14) will take on the Artesians (13-6) in a rematch of a Dec. 29 game in which South fell 67-31. The Quakers (14-4) will take on the Patriots (9-10).

The Knights (13-6) dropped a 61-29 decision to Mooresville in the first game of the season. The Pioneers are 13-6 currently and on a three game winning streak following a loss to Bloomington North. Northview has won 10 of 11 heading into the final two games of the season.

At the Clay City Sectional, the Eels (9-9) will take the court in round two versus the Union Bulldogs (5-11) who defeated Clay City 52-45 back on Dec. 20.

On Tuesday, Bloomfield (13-5) will face off with Shakamak (0-19) and North Central (5-12) will matchup with White River Valley (5-13).

With just two games remaining until sectional action, the Knights and Eels won't have an easy time in their tuneups before the postseason.

The Knights will take on Plainfield on Tuesday night and the Bloomfield Cardinals on Thursday. The Eels will get a date with unbeaten and Class A No. 4 South Putnam Tuesday evening before finishing the year versus North Daviess.
