Northview will be looking for its first-ever boys' basketball regional title tonight when the Knights meet Guerin Catholic at 8 p.m. at Greencastle.

The last time Northview won a regional game was in the 2003-04 season, when Logan Whitman and Zack Keyes led the Knights to the regional after beating Martinsville 56-49 and Terre Haute South 45-40 to win the sectional title.

Northview defeated New Albany 79-74 in the semifinal round of the regional, before falling 55-48 to Bloomington North in the finals.

Northview and Guerin Catholic had two common opponents this season, with both teams beating Greencastle and Martinsville. Northview beat Greencastle 54-48 on Jan. 8 and Martinsville 68-63 on Feb. 13. Guerin Catholic beat Greencastle 52-41 on Saturday and beat Martinsville 62-36 on Jan. 16.

Northview is the only Western Indiana Conference team remaining in the state tournament. Greencastle lost 52-41 to Guerin Catholic in the other semifinal game on Saturday at Greencastle, while Sullivan was outscored 15-2 in the final four minutes and lost 46-43 to Connersville at Washington.

Three other Northview opponents this season won regional semifinal games on Saturday.

Plainfield defeated Mount Vernon (Fortville) 61-52 at Southport, and plays Lawrence North in the finals tonight.

Bloomington South slipped by Jeffersonville 51-50 at Seymour, and meets Evansville Reitz in tonight's finals.

In Class 2A, Parke Heritage beat Triton Central 47-30 and meets Shenandoah in the finals tonight.
