Northview's Brodee Miller scored four points in the Knights loss to Bloomington South.

Northview's eight-game winning streak went up in flames on Saturday with a 40-point loss to Bloomington South.

The Knights roll came to a screeching halt along with their offense in the road contest. The Panthers held Northview scoreless in the first quarter on their way to a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter before the Knights hit a free throw. They wouldn't score their first field goal until there was just 1:04 left before halftime.

The Panthers forced 26 turnovers from the Knights and Northview also lost center Nick Wells late in the second quarter after committing a flagrant foul on South's Mike Webber.

The combination was a fatal blow for Northview who was outrebounded by a wide margin (39-24) and took 18 fewer shots than Bloomington South.

South, who was coming off a 60-50 loss to the nation's top-ranked basketball team in Lawrence North on Friday night, removed all possibility of a mental letdown early on. The Panthers, also celebrating Senior Night, pressed the Knights into submission from the beginning. Northview hit just one-of-14 shots from the opening tip and missed all nine of their first quarter shots.

The loss drops the Knights to 12-9 this season with the final regular season game slate for Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. The game will also be Senior Night for Northview.


The Knights did get a bit of good news over the weekend as the sectional draw gave them a first round bye. Northview will face off with Plainfield in that game, a team they beat 80-64 back on February 4. Other matchups in the Mooresville Sectional will have Martinsville and Terre Haute South tipping off in the first game and the host Pioneers taking on Terre Haute North.
