Northview freshmen boys fall to Bloomington South

Monday, November 22, 2010

By MATT MCKINNEY

The big-league Bloomington South freshmen came to Brazil to take on Northview's best Monday evening in two tough, physical games. Bloomington South prevailed in the end in both games, 56-25 and 57-29.

The first game started out well for the Panthers when Isaiah Gooch connected on a quick lay-up to give Bloomington South the game's first lead.

After 11 unanswered points by the Panthers, Knight Tyler Rector finally put Northview on the board with a free throw.

Rector had six points and a rebound Monday night.

Rector's point would be the only one Northview would score in the first quarter as they fell into a 23-1 hole to go into the second quarter.

In the second quarter, the Knights came out ready to battle and they proved it when Northview outscored the Panthers in the second quarter 11 points to six.

Although they were fighting hard, the Knights went into halftime down 29-12.

Northview's freshmen played with heart Monday night, including Rector, according to head coach Chad Smith.

"Tyler Rector played really well. Came off the bench for us," Smith said. "Played guard. Probably earned himself a starting spot tonight."

Bloomington South physically and athletically overmatched the undersized Rector, as well as the rest of the Knights. They had to struggle and fight for every shot and rebound,

including Daniel Kimball, who had 12 points and three rebounds on the night.

In the second half, the Panthers turned on the jets to keep the lead in their hands. Northview ended the game in a loss, 56-25.

Jim Mace had four points, Ian Heffner had two points and Kelly Hawkins added a point for the Knights.

Northview came out for the second game looking to rebound from the loss. However, it too fell behind big in the first half, 32-12.

The Knights kept the ball in the hands of Zach Moore for most of the game, and he delivered. Moore had 10 points in the game.

Garrett McKenzie and Cullen Jones each had six points, Kyle Moore had three, and Jeremy Maffioli had two.

Northview played hard until the final horn, but couldn't come away with a victory.

After both games, Smith offered nothing but praise for the Panthers.

"It was our first game of the year against a really good freshman basketball team," Smith said. "I thought we played well considering we played probably from freshman on to varsity the best program in the state of Indiana."

The Northview (0-1 overall) freshmen travel to Owen Valley on Nov. 29.
