For three quarters, the New Berlin West boys basketball team nipped at the heels of conference-leading New Berlin Eisenhower, but the Vikings never got close enough to take a real bite.
The Vikings succeeded in holding Timmer, who came in averaging 29 points per game, to 11 points in the first half, but they paid a price for such heavy attention, often leaving other shooters wide open.
Next up for the Vikings (2-6) are road trips to Whitnall and Greendale.
Eisenhower improved to 5-1 in the Woodland-West and 6-2 overall. The Lions host Greenfield on Tuesday and travel to Brown Deer on Friday.
New Berlin Eisenhower — led by senior Jenny Weiland — used a 19-2 first quarter to roll past crosstown rival New Berlin West, 52-34, Friday night at Eisenhower.
Weiland was the only player from either team in double figures with 18, as she helped Eisenhower to a 30-12 lead at halftime by scoring as many points as the crosstown Vikings.
West coach Cory Scheel talked about that fast start and how his team struggled all night.
The Hamilton Chargers are the top-ranked girls team and are coming off a 64-10 victory over West Allis Central in the Greater Metro Conference opener.
In addition to the top five boys and girls teams in the area, Roundball Rankings includes a player of the week, poll, area scoring leaders and more.
Walmart is proposing a combined supermarket and discount store for 16 acres in New Berlin, near the southeast corner of S. Moorland Road and W. Greenfield Ave.
The 150,000-square-foot store would be built at 15205-15375 W. Greenfield Ave., a mostly vacant site that now includes the Charcoal Grill restaurant, according to documents filed with the city's Department of Community Development. That building would be razed, according to the project's site plan.
The new store, if it wins city zoning approval, would replace a Walmart at 15333 W. National Ave., New Berlin, in Moorland Square Shopping Center. The new store would be larger, and would create an additional 50 to 100 jobs, according to Walmart's zoning change application.
Walmart also would work with the owner of the space it now leases "to assist in marketing and re-tenanting any vacated store building," the application said.
Walmart wants to operate the new store 24 hours a day. The proposed development site includes three-quarters of an acre of wetlands that would be preserved and buffered, the application said.» Read Full Article
