Except for Brookfield Central, I had my five other boys basketball teams fail to make it past the weekend. Three of my teams (New Berlin West, Brookfield East, Wauwatosa West) went out after one game and two teams - New Berlin Eisenhower and Wauwatosa East - went down in two games.
The Lancers – the state’s top team – plays the state’s second-ranked team – Milwaukee King – Thursday night at Brookfield East, with the winner playing the winner of the West Allis Central-Racine Case game come Saturday at 4 p.m. at WAC.
???Here’s a stat for you: These four teams in the WAC Sectional have a combined 86-9 record, a .905 winning percentage. That's ridiculous!
GIRLS GETTING STARTED
Tosa West (8-15)
My #6 Tosa West girls opened Tuesday night with a 76-4 win over #11 Milwaukee Madison/Career & Technical/Northwest (2-10) - Now that is a mouthful. MMCTN is easier to write.
