Badgers Fall From Big Ten Tournament
The Wisconsin Badgers chances at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament were all but eliminated on Saturday afternoon as Wisconsin fell to Michigan State 83-75 in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals. Frank Kaminsky lead the Badgers with 28 points, Sam Dekker and Ben Brust added 11 points each. Most experts still expect the Badgers to earn a No. 2 seed with a likely destination of Milwaukee for their opening game. The brackets will be officially announced at 5pm after the Big Ten Tournament final between Michigan State and Michigan.
Lady Ledgers Advance to State
Trailing by nine at halftime, the St. Mary Springs’ Ledgers girls came out on a 7-0 run to start the second half en route to a 55-46 victory over Whitefish Bay Dominican in Oconomowoc on Saturday night. The win sends Mitch Redig’s team to the State Tournament for the first time since joining the WIAA. Kelli Schrauth lead the way with 19 points for the Ledgers, while Eleanore Mueller backed her up with 15 points.
For the Ledgers, it was all about trying to shut down Dominican junior Allazia Blockton, who came into the game averaging 24.4 points a game. Blockton controlled the offense and defense for Dominican for 31 minutes before fouling out with under a minute to play. From there, St. Mary’s Springs extended on their three point lead with free throws to ice the game and earn a trip to Green Bay this Thursday night where they will face Algoma.
Thursday, March 20th – St. Mary’s Springs (22-3) vs. Algoma (24-3) – Resch Center – 6:35pm
Pregame coverage set for approx. 6:05pm on KFIZ. Game will be aired on K107.1 if there is a conflict with Badgers Basketball. Official broadcast schedule will be announced Monday.
