GREENCASTLE -- The Northview girl's basketball team caught Greencastle at the wrong time of the season as the Tiger Cubs claimed a 45-39 win on their home court Tuesday evening. The victory was Greencastle's fourth in the past five contests.

Northview opened the season with a victory over the Tiger Cubs in tourney play, but in round two, Greencastle used a favorable advantage at the free throw line to come away with the victory.

Greencastle got to the free throw line 30 times and made 22 of those attempts, including 15-of-19 in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, the Knights shot just 10 for the entire game, making six.

Sophomore Callan Taylor scored a game-high 21 points and hit 9-of-10 free throws in the final period.

The Knights got 10 of McKenzi Kumpf's 12 points in the second half, but it wasn't quite enough. Mikayla Rowan tallied 11 points and Mallory Smith posted nine.

The loss was the Knights' third in a row as Northview takes a break until Jan. 4 with a road trip to Owen Valley at 6 p.m.
