Reece Bauer named Jeeps All time scorer in Jeeps basketball with 1,151 points

(NNDC) – Standout Reece Bauer of the Northeast Dubois Jeeps was honored just before Saturday’s match up against the 2nd ranked Barr Reeve Vikings for scoring is 1,151st point at Jasper on January 31st to become the Jeeps All time scorer in Jeeps basketball history.  Reece ever so humble made a quick wave to the crowd and then got ready for business.

Go to the News Now archive and watch the game from Saturday as the Jeeps really took it to the very strong Viking team which included a line up of players with some real height 6′ 8″,  6′ 4″, and 6′ 3″ to a not so big Jeeps team.  The Jeeps did all they could in this back and forth battle where the Jeeps held the lead several times.  But in the end the Vikings defense and some less than stellar free throw shooting by the Jeeps caused some problems.

The Vikings really put the clamp down during the 3rd quarter and took the lead by double digits but the Jeeps were not done yet battling back to within a few points in the fourth.  The Vikings however kept scoring at every opportunity and the clock was not in the Jeeps favor as the Vikings went on to win 52 -44.

The Jeeps next match up is Tuesday against another Daviees County rival 10 -7 North Daviees Cougars.
