The 2020–21 season came to a close for the Huntington North boys basketball team on Tuesday night, as the Vikings fell 62–37 to No. 1 Homestead in the Columbia City Sectional Quarterfinals.

The Spartans came out of the gates ready to show why they earned a flawless 22–0 record in the regular season, racing out to a quick 8–2 lead midway through the opening quarter. Huntington North stopped the bleeding momentarily, but Homestead would again post an 8–2 stretch, this time to close the frame for an 18–9 lead entering the second quarter.
