Northview sophomore Trey Horn goes up for two of his 23 points in the Knights' win over West Vigo on Wednesday.

The Northview Knights' junior varsity pointedly responded after a closely-played, two-point loss to Sullivan in the first round of the WIC JV tournament Tuesday.

The Knights pounded the West Vigo Vikings 63-30 last night, overcoming their shooting woes in the previous game and recording a second-round tournament win. The Knights will face Brown County in the third round today at Owen Valley.

Coach Scott Buell's Knights unloaded against a bewildered West Vigo defense, outscoring their opponent in each quarter and shooting 21-39 on the night, including nine three-pointers.

Buell said he saw a different Knights team on the floor Wednesday than the squad he watched lose to Sullivan the night before.

"Last night was a tough shooting night. We couldn't make anything," he said. "Tonight was the opposite. When your shots are going down, that makes it a lot easier to play."

The Vikings were able to keep pace with the Knights for most of the first quarter. West Vigo forward Jacob Brown led the way for the Vikings in the first, scoring early and establishing an inside presence on defense.

But the Knights wouldn't need to take the ball inside to score against the Vikings. Northview was 3-of-3 from beyond the arc in the first, with freshman guard Austin Akers nailing a three to put the Knights up 13-9 with 1:11 to play in the quarter.

Northview's lead would only expand as the game progressed. The Knights held West Vigo to three points in the second, as the Vikings shot a meager 1-of-7 from the field. Sophomore Trey Horn buoyed the Knights in the second quarter, scoring five points as Northview cruised to a 28-12 half-time lead.

The Knights would cement the victory in the third. West Vigo's defense watched Horn explode for 13 points in the quarter, including a three-pointer with thirty seconds to play that put Northview up 43-19.

Horn set the pace for the Knights with 23 points, followed by Akers with 11 and Caleb Whitman with five. Brown notched nine points in the Vikings' loss.

The Knights will face the Eagles at 5 p.m. this evening at Owen Valley High School.
