What chance does Melrose Mindoro have against Aquinas?  Aquinas seems to be pretty unstoppable right now and it would take a near perfect game from the Mustangs to 1. Slow them down and 2. Beat them.

Bangor looks very strong in the 1st half. If they advance, I would guess the championship game will be very good.

Both teams undefeated and very talented. Aquinas ended MM's perfect season in the regional final last year.

Aquinas also had no business losing the state title game last year though...

With a 52-38 spanking of #1-seed Hartland Arrowhead in a D-1 semi-final, #4-seed Appleton North pretty much threw egg in the face of the seeding committee ... and Lightning head coach Joe Russom said as much during a courtside, post-game, TV interview.

When asked about his defending state champs being seeded 4th in the D-1 state tournament pairings, Russom  said his team was playing for the Fox Valley Association.  He went on to say the FVA was shown no respect during  the seeding conference call and that the committee felt the Classic 8 was the best girls D-1 conference n the state, awarding the #1 and #2 seeds in D-1  to Arrowhead & Mukwonago, respectively.   Russom added that in his mind, the FVA is the best girls hoops conference in WI and his team is out to prove that.   #4-seed Appleton North will have another opportunity to demonstrate Russom's belief,  Saturday night, in the D-1 state championship game vs #2-seed Mukwonago.

For the most part, the seedings in the other 4 divisions held  true to form in the state semi-finals.

IMO, I believe the 2 teams  playing for the state championship in each division on Saturday are the best 2 teams in each division, with the possible exception of New Berlin IKE in D-2 ... the Lions (23-4) certainly belong in the championship game following their 67-63 defeat of Monroe (23-4) in Friday's D-2 semi-final. But in my mind, IKE and the Cheesemakers are interchangeable, as evidenced by  Monroe's demolition if the Lions, 65-47, earlier in the season.

Oh boo-hoo, Coach. While the merits of the FVA are well-known (who's underselling that conference in any sport?). The reality is that team didn't quite do as well this year. The C8 did get two teams to state after all. Most importantly, you have to look at shared opposition. Within the last month, Appleton North was taken to school by Milwaukee King, whereas Arrowhead and Oak Creek both took care of them.

It's well-and-fine to use the snub as internal motivation...not sure the leg to stand on overall is as good as he thinks it is. Just being defending state champion Appleton North wasn't enough given comparitive resumes.

Does look like the motivation is working though, just be happy with that.
