The fact they gave NG the 4 despite beating some real good teams shows how strong this field is. Lots of talent but Roncalli is on another level with how disciplined and fundamentally sound they are.

I'm really excited to see the Kreklow vs Lambert match-up Thursday night. Teams that make it to state for the first time in many years seem to get demolished so I'd be surprised if Roncalli didn't win handily.

Roncalli systematically dismantling an uber-talented Milwaukee Academy of Science team tells you all you need to know about how this is gonna go.

Maybe Lourdes can push them in the final, but other than checking out Mr. Mulhern from O-F, my interest isn't exactly piqued by the field this year.

You are way undervaluing New Glarus.  Not saying they’ll win, but it will be tight to the end.  IMO Rocalli v NG is the state title game.  Both NG and Roncalli kinda got the shaft with NG being given the 4.

Nah, I drink it fairly regularly. 😎

Good thing they don't play the games on paper then!

I expect that to happen actually.

Roncalli was the right matchup for MAS, but I didn't expect a blowout.

I took Roncalli and I'll stick with that but not too many games ago Lourdes had a night where they shot something like 18 of 20 from 3. If they can get those looks and knock them down at a 50% - 60% rate who knows how far that could carry them.

Ha! I almost get the feeling that now I've written off this division it's going to end up being the best field at State by a mile.

New Glarus is doing an excellent job of keeping their wits about them. For a team that hasn’t been to state, they’re definitely cool, calm and collected, not a shock given their senior leadership.

Halftime

NG got out to an early lead, but Roncalli assumed control and was up 6 at 25-19 when NG switched to a 2-3 zone (apparently only the second time they've gone to a zone all year) and it's stifled the Roncalli attack since. May have behooved Roncalli to have taken a timeout sooner. Just three guys have scored for NG but each of them's athleticism while still staying in the framework of a system is giving Roncalli fits.

Leading Scorers:

NG: Zach Feller 13, Jaden Kreklow 10, Mason Martinson 6
R: Chombi Lambert 9, Matt Levene 6, Ian Behringer 6

This has been really, really poor from Roncalli since the switch to a zone.

I'm shocked.

Should not be shocked New Glarus is leading here but the fact they’re doing this with three guys putting the ball in the basket is impressice. Siegenthaler and Gassman are excellent defenders and passers though, so it’s not like they don’t affect the game either just because they haven’t scored either. Very impressed thus far, but we got a WAYS to go here.
