Ehren Wren is going to destroy that D2 game. If he gets a ton of playing time he might get MVP.

From the WSJ:

Schmitz excels in reserve role

It was a strange feeling for McFarland's Sam Schmitz to step onto the basketball court Saturday at the Kohl Center and not be the most dominant player on her team.

But it wasn't too unusual the way the UW-La Crosse-bound guard imposed her presence on the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Division 2 girls all-star game.

Schmitz scored seven of her eight points in the second quarter when her South team broke open a tight game, took an 11-point halftime lead and cruised to a 65-47 victory.

"I knew I wasn't the best player on the team, which is different as an all-star; I knew I wasn't in the top five," Schmitz said. "I stepped it up and played as hard as I could."

Schmitz was the first to emerge from the shadows of University of Wisconsin-bound Caitlin Gibson, the 6-foot-4 center from Jefferson, whose 15 points and six rebounds led the South; and Marquette-bound Krystal Ellis of Racine St. Catherine's, who had seven of the South's first 11 points. Reedsburg guard Katie Webber stepped forward in the second half, scoring eight of her 10 points in the third quarter when the South extended its lead to 50-28.

"I was excited to play with such good players," said Webber, a Michigan Tech recruit who also had four rebounds, four assists and three steals - all without a turnover - in 26 minutes. "I was just looking to make good passes. I wasn't looking to score today."

Neither was Schmitz, whose two free throws broke a 16-16 tie with 6 minutes, 3 seconds to play in the first half. Her three-point play in the final seconds of the first half capped a 15-4 South run.

"It just came out of nowhere," Schmitz said of the play. "I just kind of did it like I normally do."

The South displayed fine chemistry and solid team defense, limiting the North to 22 percent shooting.

"When we scrimmaged, we weren't playing like we did today," said Webber, who authored the pass of the game - a back-door, alley-oop feed to Ellis for a fourth-quarter layup.

"At practice, it didn't seem like we had our hearts into it. We weren't mixing well as a team. This was the first time we played well together. It came at a good time, I guess."
