TERRE HAUTE -- The Northview Knights came away from the weekend's Terre Haute Tip-Off Tourney feeling pretty good about the results after capturing third-place and going 2-1 over the course of the games played at West Vigo High School.

After winning Thursday's opener against Greencastle, the Knights struggled against a Terre Haute South squad that got 17 points from Tasia Brewer in a 56-27 win over Northview.

The Braves pulled away in the middle two quarters after holding just a three-point lead at the first stop. However, the Braves outscored the Knights 34-7 during the second and third periods to gain a berth in the championship game against Terre Haute North.

Despite the loss, the Knights still hand business to take care of as Northview faced Western Indiana Conference foe Owen Valley in the third-place contest.

The Patriots got off to a good start in the game, leading 20-16 at halftime before losing point guard Alicia Wilson to a sprained ankle in the third quarter. The Knights took full advantage, turning a tie-game into a 42-32 victory over the Patriots. Northview held Owen Valley to just three-of-19 shooting from 3-point range and got a double-double from Mikayla Rowan to double its win total from last season.

Rowan had 12 points and 10 rebounds with Mallory Smith adding seven points. Guard Ashley Hughes tallied six points along with Cassie Weddle and Whitney Halfhill. Hughes also added seven boards in the victory and had nine assists.

Terre Haute North would go on to capture the championship in a 49-33 victory over the Braves.

The Knights (2-1 overall) travel to Riverton Parke this evening with the JV contest tipping off at 6 p.m.
