Northview's junior varsity basketball teams set a pretty good example for its' varsity counterparts heading into Friday's WIC matchup with West Vigo.

The JV girls and boys' teams each earned convincing wins over the visiting Vikings on Tuesday evening.

The girls opened the evening with a dominating performance, forcing 29 turnovers with its trapping defense and putting three players in double-figures on the way to a 72-25 victory.

The boys' team extended a one-point lead after one quarter, and controlled the middle two periods of a 57-32 victory.

Four different Northview players scored in double-figures to take the victory.

Trent Lancaster and Jonathan Bradshaw were the first quarter leaders for Northview.

Lancaster scored seven of his team-high 13 points in the first period and Bradshaw had the other two hoops as Northview led 11-10.

But in the second quarter, the Knights' Derek Duncan got hot from the field, hitting a 3-pointer along with back-to-back jumpers from inside the arc for 10 points. Jacob Musgrave joined the scoring list with his strong play in the post.

The 6'3 freshman hit his first four shots in the paint and pulled down five of his team-high seven rebounds in the middle two quarters.

The Knights held West Vigo to just two-of-nine shooting from the field in the second period and took a 27-18 lead at halftime.

After the break Northview continued it's offensive surge with Bradshaw taking over in the post.

Lancaster opened the half with a score and a double-digit Northview lead, 29-18. Bradshaw then followed with a three-point play.

West Vigo coach Chris Covert drew a technical foul with 5:04 left in the quarter for arguing a couple of non-calls on the Knights.

Lancaster hit one-of-two free throws and Bradshaw followed with a hoop to cap an 8-0 run to start the half.

Duncan added a jumper as part of a 10-point night and Lancaster finished the quarter with a 3-pointer as Northview pulled ahead 42-23.

The Knights got a score from Scotty Wheeler and a follow-up hoop from Musgrave off a fast break assist from Lancaster.

Trent Sims helped Northview finish off the win on a great assist to Wheeler in the paint and sophomore Joel Rector knocked home a 3-pointer to end the scoring for the Knights.

The Northview girls got out quick on the Vikings, forcing 12 turnovers with their pressure and Emily Phillips scored five of her nine points in the first quarter.

The Knights led 18-4 after the first six minutes in which seven different Northview players scored.

Erica Lee got red hot in the second quarter, nailing three straight 3- pointers on her way to a team-high 13 points. Lee was joined by Shelby Colson who added four of her 12 points in the period.

By the halftime break the Knights had the game in a death grip, leading 37-14 and having forced turnovers nearly at will with its ball-hawking defense.

Carlee Bell and Phillips spearheaded the ball pressure which allowed the forwards to haul in numerous errant passes which led to quick points.

In the second half, Ali Sharton contributed back-to-back scores following a drive from Phillips. The quick 7-0 run gave Northview a 44-14 lead.

Bell added three free throws in the quarter and Colson dropped in two more hoops while grabbing three of her game-high eight rebounds.

Allison Stearley, Kelsey Searing and Jessica Tallman each had two field goals in the final quarter as Northview salted away the win.

Katie Smith had all four of her points to go with three rebounds after halftime of the Knights' win.

The JV girls will visit Terre Haute North on Nov. 11 while the boys host Edgewood on Nov. 13.
