Area Basketball Teams Hit the Hardwood

Issue Date: December 3, 2021

Boys Basketball

Crivitz Powers Past

Crandon With Big

Second Half


The Crivitz Wolverines felt the first game jitters early in their season opener against Crandon on Friday, but once they calmed down and slowed the game down, they won comfortably, 75-40.

Crivitz had a big size advantage down low. The Wolverines led 15-9 on a Tegan Werner putback early. Their biggest lead of the first half was 25-15 on a 3-pointer by Cashton Mertens, but Crandon kept it close until the break, pulling it back to 28-25 by halftime.

"I know it's the first half of the first game, but at the same time, we had a pretty clear size advantage, and there was no reason to panic like we did in the paint," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said. "We did it way too much, and that was kind of the whole message at halftime: just move the basketball, be patient, take care of it. Instead of trying to jam passes in there, just move it until you get someone open."

It was a different Crivitz team in the second half. The Wolverines re-took a double-digit lead at 35-25 shortly into the period and never looked back.

By the time Crandon scored its first second-half bucket, the score was 47-25, as Crivitz opened the half on a 19-0 run. The game wouldn't be close from there on out.

"I thought once the bigs just slowed down by a half a step, I thought that was the key for us," Baumann said. "I thought our perimeter guys were fairly smart other than some of the bad passes, but I thought their shot selection was decent out on the perimeter. We needed to clean it up inside and we did that. I thought defensively, they played very hard the whole game, and I was happy with that."

Sean Christiansen finished the game with 24 points to lead all scorers. He made 11 of his 22 field goal attempts, also grabbing six rebounds.

Werner led Crivitz with 10 rebounds, also scoring 15 points on a 6-for-9 night. Dillan Gehm was 5-for-13 for 12 points, with a team-high seven assists.

Brady Tadisch scored eight points for Crivitz on an efficient 4-for-5 night. He had a team-high six steals in the ballgame.



Cougars Pull Away

from Cardinals in

Second Half for Win


Coleman's defense held Crandon to just 10 second-half points in a 42-28 win on Saturday.

The game was close at halftime, with Coleman holding on to a 22-18 advantage behind Tieg Sadowski's 11 points in the first half.

Sadowski finished the game with 15 points, the most of any player in the game. He was the only player on either team to reach double figures.

Noah Nosgovitz finished with nine points, a week after starting at quarterback in a state football championship. Eli Zablocki had eight points and Logan Kurth scored five, all in the first half.

Crandon made just three field goals for its 10 points in the second half. Logan Gretzinger, who led the team with eight points, had five in the second half. Five of his eight points came at the free-throw line.

In total, the Cougars held the Cardinals to just 16.3% shooting. They made just 3/29 from two and 5/20 from deep, and were out-scored in the paint 24-6.

Coleman shot 30.9% from the field (14/38 on 2-point FGs, 3/17 on 3-point attempts).



Sommerfeldt Leads

Marinette Past

Greendale


Marinette came away with a 68-56 win over Greendale on Saturday, with free throws playing a large role.

Marinette made three less free throws than Greendale, but finished 20-for-25 on free throws to Greendale's 2-for-4.

Marinette's Jake Sommerfeldt led all scorers with 25 points, going 12-for-14 on free throws.

Sam Sommerfeldt and Keegan Polomis each scored 12 points, going 4-for-11 and 3-for-4 shooting from the field, respectively. Polomis made all four of his free throws and both of his 3-pointers.

Dominic Smerchek scored six points with a team-high eight rebounds in just 16 minutes, while Carson Erdman added eight points.

Greendale's Tommy Fritsch scored 23 points in 27 minutes, making nine of 16 shots and going 5-for-10 from deep. Devin Isaj scored 19 on 8-for-16 shooting.



Marines Stumble in

Second Half Fall to

Hawks at Tourney


Marinette came up short against The Prairie School on Friday, losing by a 78-60 score.

Marinette finished 19-for-59 shooting, including 6-for-22 on 3-pointers. The Prairie School, on the other hand, shot 50% for the game, 33-for-66.

The two teams were close at halftime, with the score at 38-36, but The Prairie School outscored Marinette 40-24 in the second half.

For the victors, Asanjai Hunter led with 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting. Ashe Oglesby added 16 on an 8-for-16 night and Arjun Kumar was 6-for-8 for 15 points.

For Marinette, Jake Sommerfeldt scored 18 points. He made all eight of his free throws, but went just 4-for-20 from the field and 2-for-11 from deep. Sam Sommerfeldt scored 13 points on 3-for-9 shooting. He was 3-for-8 from downtown.

Charlie Bailey chipped in 10 on 5-for-9 shooting, also leading the team with seven rebounds.



Wolverines Rally

Past Rebels With

Huge Second Half


A huge second half push propelled the Crivitz Wolverines to a 63-51 win over Laona/Wabeno on Saturday.

At the half, the Rebels held a 22-18 lead over Crivitz, with 14 points by Connor Taylor the key for Laona/Wabeno. Several Wolverines got hot in the second half as Crivitz scored 45 points in the second half.

Dillan Gehm scored all 12 of his points in the second half, Kaden Spalding scored all eight of his points and Tegan Werner got eight of his team-high 14 in the half.

Seth Sellen finished the game with 10 points for Crivitz as well.

Taylor led all scorers with 24 points, while Reed Christianson scored 18. Outside of that pair, the Rebels combined for just nine points.

Taylor got to the free-throw line 12 times, knocking down eight.

It was a testament to the Rebels that despite allowing 45 points in the second half, they were never out of the ballgame. With about nine minutes to play, it was still a one-score game.

"We played this team this summer, and I was impressed with them then," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said. "We struggled in man-to-man against them, and we're supposed to be able to play man-to-man, so we have to work harder in practice on man-to-man. The trap helped us a lot."

It was the Wolverine bench that really turned the tide of the game, with big minutes from guys like Spalding and Cashton Mertens.

"Kaden Spalding played a nice game, and Cashton came in and gave us some good minutes. That's very much a positive. We didn't play well, but a lot of that is because the other team forced us not to play well. That's a good team," Baumann said. "It was not a pretty game by any stretch, but I came away happy that when we struggled, we got some guys that could still come in and pick the other guys up. We battled. I was proud of our guys for playing hard on a night where we weren't in a whole lot of rhythm."



Blue Devils Beat

Rebels in Home Opener


The Oconto Blue Devils defeated Laona/Wabeno on Tuesday by a 74-60 score.

Oconto took the lead in the first half, with a 40-27 advantage at the midway point. The two teams played close in the second half.

Oconto was led by Kadin Baxter, who scored 24 points. Christian Koch got 13, Luke Krueger had 12 and Kipper Geering finished with seven.

Laona/Wabeno got 23 from Connor Taylor, Carter Janesch added 21 and Reed Christeanson scored 14. The trio combined for 58 of the team's 60 points. Adam Seeber had the only other bucket of the game for the Rebels.

Florence led 50-13 at the half, and tightened up on defense even more in the second half, leading to a 35-5 score.

Overall, Wausaukee shot 9-for-29 from the field and 0-6 on free throws, but the biggest issue for the Rangers was 42 turnovers.

A total of 12 Florence players recorded at least one steal. Tyler Novak, Patrick Milan, William Kelley and Even Johnson each tallied four takeaways.

Menominee Indian had three players finish with double-digit free throws. Isiah Moss, Lloyd Reevis and Wendell Waukau Jr. had 16, 13 and 10 rebounds, respectively. Reevis led the team with 17 points, while Moss had 16. Joshua Besaw added 12.
