Wolverines Hold Onto Lead in M&O

Issue Date: February 7, 2019

Wolverines Stay Hot, Run Away From Wildcats at Home

Crivitz took care of Lena with a 61-37 win Saturday that wasn't flashy, but consistent.

The Wolverines took a 30-17 lead at the half and ramped up the pressure a bit to force some turnovers, finishing with a 24-point win. It was a Saturday morning after a couple weeks off due to weather and the Wolverines got a win, but it didn't come as easy as they would have liked.

"Not taking anything away from them, I was a little disappointed with a little bit of a lack of energy on our part," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said. "I don't know if that's part of being a Saturday morning with very few people in the gym and we haven't played in over two weeks, but I just thought we were lacking energy a little bit."

Crivitz may have lacked a bit of energy, but Lena did show some strong signs of life in the game.

"I thought a few times, their pick and rolls were pretty effective and they would find the open guy when we came up and tried to double on it," Baumann said.

Lena's fill-in coach Mike Nompleggi was happy with his team's performance in his coaching debut, as they took the top M&O Conference team with a lot of heart.

"With a young team like we have going against a big powerhouse like this, it's pretty special to see that ball movement and them working together like they are," he said. "I find it very unique and it's very cool to see them hustle every single second of the game, especially those six that we played today."

The Wildcats had just six players enter the game. Max Beyer made three 3-pointers and finished with 14 points and the pair of Colby Borchert and Logan Shallow each had 8.

"Our kids played really hard today, especially with six guys," Nompleggi said. "What can you do?"

Chandler Kaldenberg had 14 points, Jaden Werner scored 12, Dawson Andrist scored 8, Eian Baumann finished with 8 and Trey Franzen chipped in 7 for Crivitz.

"I said I just didn't know what to say about the game in the locker room afterwards," coach Baumann said. "It was just kind of a game we did some good things, we did some bad things and we've just got to have a little more energy consistently."

Crivitz Downs STAA For a Saturday Doubleheader Sweep

It doesn't get a ton more efficient than Crivitz was against St. Thomas Aquinas Academy on Saturday.

The Wolverines shot 36-of-59 from the field and 12-for-27 from downtown in an 88-20 win.

Crivitz led 46-10 at the end of the first half and kept the pressure on defensively to hold the Cavaliers to 10 in the second half again.

Dawson Andrist went 8-for-9 from the field for Crivitz, finishing with 21 points. Chandler Kaldenberg had 13, Jaden Werner scored 10 and the pair of Eian Baumann and Eli Lawrence added 9 apiece. A total of 10 Wolverines scored in the game, while just five Cavaliers scored, with none eclipsing six points.

"You've got to give [STAA coach Ric Powers] a lot of credit," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said. "He's in a tough situation with basically an entire team that hasn't seen any entire team that hasn't seen a lot of varsity playing time and some kids that haven't played much basketball before. They have been putting a few more points on the board."

After a performance that was a bit flat in the first half of a doubleheader, beating Lena, Crivitz showed why it's undefeated in M&O Conference play with a dominant win.

"I don't know that I'll ever coach another doubleheader in a day, as far as varsity basketball goes. It's a little different," Baumann said.

STAA got 6 points from Griffen Knox and 5 from both Alex Powers and Brennan Cyr-Smith.

Suring Sends Wausaukee Flying

The Suring Eaglesn posted a resounding win over the hosting Wausaukee Rangers Tuesday night, 71-52.

The crushing loss for the Rangers saw some good play from the boys though. Hayden Renikow made his way to a 21 point readout while Tristain Pollard pushed through 13 points. Tyler Gruszynski also made double digits with 10.

Suring on the other hand had a couple Eagles go off on scioring rallies as Caleb Lally led all scorers with 24 points. Mitch Stegeman followed up with 20 points.

Coleman Keeps RacevTight With Win Over Gilett

The Coleman Cougars who are still in the mix for the title kept that hope alive Tuesday night when they took down the hosting Gillett Tigers 66-40.

Coleman was fast out of the gates as they built a 37-21 lead at the half. A 29 point effort by the Coleman offense and a 19 point effort by the Gillett offense spelled defeat for the Tigers.

Coleman's Bratz led the way for all scorers with 13 points while Payton Nelson chipped in 12 to the effort. Fetak tacked on nine.

Gillett was led by Krueger with 12 points and Long with 10.

Eagles Prove To Be Too Much for Improving STAA Team

As has been the case all season, the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers struggled to score in a 66-16 loss to the Suring Eagles on Friday.

St. Thomas was held to seven points in the first half by a swarming Eagles defense, while Suring dropped 35 in the half. Caleb Lally had 17 of his 27 points in the first half to lead the Eagles out ahead and the momentum continued into the second half.

By the end of the game, eight Suring players had scored. Suring coach Jim Keefe said it was good to get all the seniors on the floor together and the younger players an opportunity as well.

"Everybody wants to get their piece of the pie, so things can get a little ragged, but I thought for the most part we stayed pretty disciplined, ran what we were supposed to do, ran our stuff," Keefe said. "The kids played hard on defense I thought. I thought we went to the boards well."

After the graduations of Tyler Stuart, Christian Hornick and Jack Farley, who carried the offensive weight last season, the Cavaliers have struggled to find scoring.

"Now, suddenly they've got to create shots and we don't have anybody that can just go and create shots," STAA coach Ric Powers said. "Poor Lucas [Hofer], we said "here, you're the point guard now.' He's never played point guard in his life and he's actually doing way better than I ever thought he would do."

Last time the teams played, Powers estimated that Suring allowed STAA to get off only three shots due to a high turnover total.

"At least we're getting shots off," Powers said. "Once you start getting shots off, then you'll start getting more comfortable making them because you're actually shooting them, but turnovers, that's been our story all year long."

Suring still has improvements to make, Keefe said.

"Going forward, going to the offensive glass and improving our defense is going to get us a ways in the tournament," he said. "We've got guys who can score, we just need to learn how to defend better."

Beyond Lally's 27, Mitch Stegeman and Josh Reed each had 9.

Alex Powers and Brennan Cyr-Smith each scored five points for STAA.

Marinette's First Half Lead Not Enough to Offset Freedom Rally

Marinette's slow second half allowed Freedom to pull away from the Marines for 65-52 win on Friday.

The Marines led 34-28 at the half, but the 15 minutes between halves was not kind to the traveling Marinette squad, which was outscored 37-18 in the second half.

Jake Poetzl scored a team-high 16 points for Marinette. Jeremy Wendt wasn't far behind with 15 and Matt Wagner scored 12.

Luke Pringel and Zack Mashlan each scored 17 points for the victors.

League Leading Redmen Too Much for Maroons

The Marquette Redmen haven't lost in Great Northern Conference play so far this season and the Menominee Maroons haven't won in conference play. Friday was no different.

Marquette won 80-32 on a night where Menominee couldn't score and couldn't stop senior Grand Valley State commit Marius Grazulis. The near-7-footer scored a game-high 16 points for Marquette, with his team leading 41-18 at the halftime break.

The Maroons' Brady Badker scored 8 points, Keagan Monroe and Dante Sartorelli scored 6 and Aidan Bellisle finished with 5.
