WIAA Crowns Five Champions at Boys State Hoops Tourney

Issue Date: March 21, 2019

Top-seeded Brookfield Central (23-5) gained possession of the Division 1 title with a 69-52 victory over Sun Prairie in the 2019 State Boys Basketball Tournament Saturday night at the Kohl Center.

The Lancers trailed 3-2 a minute into the contest, but that's the last time the would be behind the rest of the game. They took control with a 12-0 run over the next four minutes. The Cardinals fought back to within six points at the 11:51 mark of the first period, but the Lancers built their largest lead of the half with a 30-14 advantage and took a 36-25 lead into the locker room.

The closest the Cardinals would get in the second half is to within 10 points at the 17:20 mark. The Lancers led by as many as 18 points at numerous points of the second half. Any chance of a Sun Prairie comeback was snuffed out by the Lancers' torrid marksmanship. They shot 64 percent from the field in the game, including 64 percent from the three-point arc on 9-of-14 attempts. The Lancers were also on target from the charity stripe, sinking 14-of-16 free throws.

David Joplin posted a double-double to lead the Lancers. He scored 23 points with 13 rebounds in the game. He also recorded a game-high three blocked shots. Ben Nau contributed with 17 points, and brother, Cole Nau, added 13 points and a game-high six assists.

Brock Voigt led the Cardinals with 17 points, and both Colin Schaefer and Delaware Hale chipped in with 11 points. Cooper Nelson led Sun Prairie on the boards with seven rebounds and a game-high three steals.

The Lancers win their first State championship in their 11th tournament appearance, and Sun Prairie (21-7) finishes runner-up in its second tournament experience.

Top-seeded Nicolet (27-1) earned the Division 2 title with a 67-54 victory over Milwaukee Washington.

In the much-anticipated match-up, the Knights led the entire contest after jumping out to a six-point lead to start the game. They built their largest lead of the first half to 13 just before the halftime buzzer on a Jamari Sibley basket. The Knights held their double-digit lead through the first 18 minutes of the second half. The Purgolders cut their deficit to eight, but they could not get any closer the rest of the way.

Neither team lit it up shooting the ball. Nicolet converted at a 37 percent clip, including 2-of-17 from beyond the arc. The Purgolders made 33 percent of their field goals from the floor and just 1-of-14 three-point attempts.

Sibley led the Knights in scoring with 23 points and added nine rebounds, and Jalen Johnson recorded a big double-double with 20 points and 20 rebounds to go with four assists. 

The Purgolders were led by Doentay Long with a double-double of his own, netting 24 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Michael Foster also contributed double figures in scoring with 13 points, as did Anthony White with 10.

The Knights won their first State championship in their third tournament appearance, and Milwaukee  Washington (22-6) finishes runner-up for the second straight season in their 14th experience in the tourney.

Top-seeded Martin Luther (25-3) won the Division 3 title with a 58-49 triumph over Waupun.

The Spartans never trailed in a game remained closely contested throughout. Their largest lead of the game was nine points, achieved for the first time with 2:25 remaining in the first half. They also held that spread at the half, 30-21. 

The Warriors battled back to tie the game for the first time since the opening tip at 40-40 with 8:06 remaining in the game. However, the Spartans clinched the title by scoring 10 of the game's final 11 points in the last two minutes.

Ace Evans scored a game-high 20 points for the Spartans, and Trequan Carrington added 19 points and a team-high four assists and three steals. Martin Luther shot 44 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the line while scoring 13 points off 12 Waupun turnovers.

The Warriors were led by Reece Homan with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting and a game-high nine rebounds. Marcus Domask added 15 points and a team-high four assists, and Trevor VandeZande tossed in 14 points. The Warriors shot 49 percent from the field, but any comeback efforts were thwarted by shooting woes from three-point distance and from the free throw line. They shot 21 percent from beyond the arc and 47 percent on 8-of-17 free throws.

The Spartans won the program's first State championship and became the 39th school to win a championship in their first appearance in the tourney. Waupun (26-2) finishes runner-up in its third State experience.

Fourth-seeded New Glarus (26-2) won the Division 4 championship with a 67-62 victory over Lourdes Academy.

The game was closely contested throughout with the largest lead by any team being five points by New Glarus. The contest featured 17 lead changes and 12 ties. The Glarner Knights led most of the game, including a 37-35 advantage at the half. 

The Knights had an opportunity to take advantage of inconsistent free throw shooting in the final minutes of the game by the Glarner Knights; however, they failed to score a field goal in the final 3:15 of the second half.

Jaden Kreklow led all scorers with 22 points to go with a team-high four assists for the Glarner Knights. Mason Martinson added 17 points and a team-high nine rebounds. Zach Feller also scored in double figures with 12 points.

Preston Ruedinger led four Knights scoring in double figures with 17 points and handed out a game-high five assists. Hayden Jones scored 16 points with a game-high 10 boards. Benny Huizenga added 13 points, and Henry Noone chipped in with 11.

The Glarner Knights win their first State championship in their fourth appearance in the tournament, and their first since 1932. Lourdes Academy (26-2) finishes runner-up in its fourth State experience.  

Top-seeded Sheboygan Lutheran (27-2) won the Division 5 championship with a 77-69 victory over Columbus Catholicr.

The Crusaders scored the first nine points of the game and led throughout the enitre contest. They built a 20-point advantage at 49-29 for their largest lead of the first half with 25 seconds remaining. They took a 49-31 lead into the locker room.

The Dons methodically clawed back into the game in the second half and narrowed their deficit to four points late in the game following an 11-2 run, but they could get no closer.

A few Division 5 records were set or tied in the game, among them were the most rebounds in a tournament, and the most assists in a game and in a tournament. The Dons' Bryce Fuerlinger set the Division 5 tournament rebounding record with 34 in the two games, and the Crusaders' Casey Verhagen dished out 11 assists in the game, which ties the record, giving him a tournament-record 20 assists.

Jacob Ognacevic had a monster game for the Crusaders. He score a game-high 35 points to go with 19 rebounds, which is the second-most in a Division 5 game behind Fuerlinger's record of 25 set Friday in the semifinals. Delvin Barnstable tossed in 17 points, and Robby Michael added 10 for the Crusaders. 

Ethan Meese was the leading scorer for McDonell Catholic with 22 points. Noah Taylor was the only other player in double figures with 17 points. Fuerlinger grabbed nine rebounds to set the tournament mark, and blocked three shots.

It's the Crusaders' second State championship in their third appearance in the tournament. They also captured the crown in 2012. Columbus Catholic (26-3) finishes runner-up in its third State experience.
