AKRON – Balanced scoring and a huge second half helped the Tippecanoe Valley Vikings rout Oregon-Davis Tuesday night.

In a non-conference high school boys basketball game, the host Vikings outscored the Bobcats 54-17 in the third and fourth quarters as they cruised to an 85-40 win.

Tanner Trippiedi led Valley with a game-high 16 points, adding five rebounds, four steals and two assists to his statline.

Parkur Dalrymple chipped in with 15 points, Jalen Shepherd tallied 13 points and seven rebounds, and Cameron Parker scored 13 points.

Twelve players got minutes for the Vikings, with 10 of them making it into the scoring column.

Of the 10 Valley players that scored, seven of them tallied at least six points.

Dylan Murphy led the Bobcats with 14 points and four rebounds, while Garrett Well chipped in with 12 points, eight boards and three steals, and Gavin Sibo finished with eight points.

The Vikings, who improved to 2-2, shot 58 percent from the field in the win, while Oregon-Davis fell to 0-4 after shooting just 30 percent.

Valley led 16-10 after one quarter of play and 31-23 at halftime.

The Vikings blew the game open in the third quarter, outscoring their guests 23-6, followed by a 31-11 difference in the final frame.

Valley is in action again Saturday at Glenn, followed by a Three Rivers Conference game at Peru Tuesday.

The Vikings’ next home game is Dec. 14 when they host Whitko.
