KNIGHTS CLINCH

KENTRELL BARKLEY'S 36 POINTS, 16 REBOUNDS LEAD NORTHERN PAST JORDAN IN OT IN PAC-6 4-A CLINCHER

Northern needed a big night from Kendrell Barkley and it got it as he scored a career-high 35 points to lead the Knights to a 78-76 overtime win that clinched the PAC-6 regular season.

Barkley, whose previous career high of 30 points also came against Jordan, did most of his damage on the inside. He also grabbed 16 rebounds and dished out seven assists.

“We played great defense and got everybody involved,” Barkley said. “They beat us the last time out our house so we had some payback to do. I just tried to  get everyone involved.”

Jordan won the first matchup between the two teams 76-69 at Northern.

Jordan coach Kim Annas said he expected another tight contest against Northern.

“It was a great game between two great high school teams,” Annas said. “Northern has a great team and we’ve got a lot of good players. This was a great game to be a part of.”

Northern (21-2, 8-1 PAC-6) earned its first regular-season title for fifth-year Knights coach Ronnie Russell.
