Congrats to the Evergreens. 26-0 and on to State.

Hopefully the "UpNorth Champion" can compete with the Madison & Milwaukee Schools

DC Everest is going to encounter some obstacles vs Arrowhead unlike anything the Evergreens have seen so far this season ... namely a tandem of 6'2" low post players offered up by the Warhawks to counter DCE's 6'4" center, Taylor Hodell. Arrowhead's defense features 6'2" Ally May, who is also a legitimate scoring threat at 12.6 ppg, and 6'2" Kayla Lorenz & 6'0" Callie Lederman who average 9 ppg between them. I suspect 2 post players of this size on the floor at any given time for Arrowhead will cause DCE's Hodell fits, as her offense consists mainly of catch and shoot near the rim, with entry passes typically up high where defenders can't contest them. Other than some resistance offered by WI Rapids' center Victoria Hansen in 2 games this season, Hodell was never really vertically challenged. All of that will change for Ms Hodell & DC Everest, in Friday night's D-1 semi-final game vs Arrowhead.

The best week in spectator basketball starts today with the advent of sectional play. With hopes and dreams(not to mention the requisite fears) securely in tow, the road trips are being planned, (where the heck is Oconto Falls and how do you get there?) and while 16 have been called to each division, only 4 will survive the packed gymnasiums providing the tense, tearful and tortuous closing minutes of the "we're THIS close to getting there" games.

What can we expect? Post your insights and outlooks here.


Some prescience here as apparently the referees did not know and went to Antigo instead. []

Assumption/NEW Lutheran tip-off delayed 'til 2 PM...


From what I hear through the Stripes Grapevine, there was a last minute change in assignments yesterday. There was a breakdown in communication and two crews went to Antigo and none to Oconto Falls. Oops! It's at least a 75 minute drive from Antigo to Oconto Falls. The crew left Antigo around 12:15. That accounts for the hour delay.
Without officials, it would just be recess!

I'm late to the party on this, but I did attend the Barneveld vs. Bangor sectional final game. After watching the game, I predict that in 2 year, we will see Bangor make an appearance at the Resch. They had 5 freshman contributing, and holding their own in this game. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, they seemed to run out of gas after halftime.

It will be very interesting to monitor the attendance at the 2015 Girls State Tournament this coming weekend at the Resch Center in Green Bay. Interesting and significant because for the 1st time in the 3 years, there will not be a heavy local presence at the Resch. Attendance the first 2 seasons was arguably impacted by the presence of several "local" teams, i.e. Green Bay Notre Dame, Algoma, Kewaunee, New London and Kimberly.

This year's tourney will feature only 2 teams which can be remotely considered "local," Appleton Xavier and Fond du Lac St Mary's Springs. Will the Green Bay & Fox Valley basketball fans come out to support the state tournament despite the absence of "local" teams?

Perhaps the encouraging weather forecast for the upcoming week will help drive attendance to compensate for the lack in numbers of "local" teams.


My exact thoughts when the score lines started coming down. Should be very, very interesting to see what the gate will be.

My "UPNORTH" Champion is stealing from Michigan which crowns an "Upper Peninsula" Champion in some sports.

My prediction: Arrowhead by 8

DC Everest by 5, freshman Taylor Petit will be the difference.

Badger game at noon on Fri too.

Xavier canceled school for Friday. I would expect they will travel very well for their game but may not stay all day.

That will put maybe another hundred and a half for that game. Where I see the drop off being is in D1 and D2, it is a tough sell to the casual fan travel from Wausau, Madison or Milwaukee for the games later in the evening. Tough to play that 8:15 game and turn around and drive back on 29

Don't get me wrong, talented freshman, but at State, against a Milwaukee-area school is a little much to ask...
I'd ride my Seniors on both sides of this one

I agree ride your seniors but she could be a difference maker. She went on 9-0 run by herself in the 3rd quarter vs Neenah to blow that game wide open.

Over the years (lots of 'em), I've seen younger players react on opposite ends of the spectrum in opening games at the state tournament. Either the gravity of the moment overwhelms them and they play tight or their aloofness & inexperience plays to their advantage, the enormity of the moment is completely lost on them, and they play as if they were shooting hoops in their own drive-way !

Couldn't agree more. I saw a freshman from our area nail it at State, then her Sophomore year was a total nervous wreck, because she then GOT IT, on what a big deal it was.

Seems as the Evergreens defeated that obstacle now they have a bigger on one to conquer!
