Niagara Gets Slammed By Florence
The Niagara Badgers bareley held a flame to the Florence Bobcats last Monday when the visiting Bobcats brought the house down with a 73-46 final verdict.

Maroons Fall to Braves High Scoring Offense
When you allow 91 points, you aren't going to get many wins in Upper Peninsula high school basketball and Friday was no different for the Menominee Maroons, as they fell 91-50 to the Gladstone Braves.
The Braves shot the lights out in the first half, dropping 65 points. They'd dial back the offense and didn't quite hit triple digits, but they had a pretty good night nonetheless. Reece Castor had 27 to lead all scorers and Carson Shea had 22.
Menominee's Aidan Bellisle scored 18 points and Brady Badker chipped in 12.
Marinette Pulls Away From FVL in 2nd Half for 72-52 Win
Marinette took care of Fox Valley Lutheran on Friday for a 71-52 win.
The Marines led 36-32 at halftime, but combined with just 20 points allowed, the Marines offense was enough in the second half to pull away for a double-digit win.
Jake Poetzl had 16, Jeremy Wendt had 14, Rylie Nelson scored eight and the pair of Tyler Fayta and Trey Bretl each had seven, but the game's top scorer was Matt Wagner, who dumped in 19 points.
