The UW-Parkside women’s basketball team will celebrate Thanksgiving in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The Rangers will play Northwood (Mich.) in the Mt. McKinley Bank North Star Invitational at 4 p.m.
When a basketball team tops the 100-point mark, there are bound to be a number of contributors.
That was the case on Tuesday night as nine Carthage players combined for 17 3-pointers — one shy of the school record — in a 106-93 victory over Olivet College in a non-conference game played at the Cutler Event Center in Olivet, Mich.
Freshman Chelby Koker was 20-of-27 from the free throw line en route to 30 points as the Shoreland girls basketball team made it 2-for-2 with a 64-47 non-conference win at Racine Case on Tuesday night.
Koker was 16-of-23 from the line in the second half as the Pacers defeated a Racine Southeast Conference school for the second time in as many tries this season.
Harborside senior Aniya Whittington was among the five National Letter of Intent signees announced recently by UW-Parkside volleyball coach Christine Paciero.
Whittington, a 6-foot-2 outside hitter, attends Harborside but was a first-team All-Southeast Conference and honorable mention All-State performer at Tremper.
In a season opener for two teams playing short-handed and adjusting to the new 18-minute halves, not too much could be extracted from Tuesday night’s non-conference game between the Shoreland Lutheran and Christian Life boys basketball teams at CLS.
Except this: Shoreland’s Lucas Wendt was the best player on the floor, and he probably will be on many nights this season.
Bradford has had its share of individual state champions over the years, and it displays their pictures on plaques in the school.
And despite owning every boys swimming record at Bradford, that makes Ivar Iverson want to join them.
Christian Life 57, University School 34
Last year it was the defense. The change this season is to the offense.
The Christian Life boys basketball team switched from a zone to a man-to-man last year, and that is one of the reasons the Eagles got off to a 1-8 start en route to a 7-16 record.
Going 12-0 and winning the Indian Trails Blue Division was nice and all, and of course the Reuther boys basketball team would like to do it again.
But what Bulldogs coach Cliff McKenzie also wants this season is to win more than one non-conference game. Reuther was 1-11 last season, and can match that victory output when it opens its season Tuesday night at Milwaukee Bay View.
Experience. Size. Talented guard play. Hunger.
The St. Joseph girls basketball team appears to possess all of the necessary ingredients to contend for a Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division-4 state championship this season.
When 10th-year Shoreland boys basketball coach Paul Strutz looks at the Metro Classic Conference, he sees any number of teams that will be in the mix.
And he fully expects the Pacers to be among them.
Recent two-sport Carthage athlete Caris Alan has taken over the Reuther girls basketball program.
Last season, the UW-Parkside men’s basketball team blew a 12-point second-half lead in losing its home opener, 80-79, to Walsh University.
The Tremper girls basketball team has put together identical 15-8 records in the last two seasons.
The Trojans have also posted 10-4 records good enough for a pair of third-place finishes in the Southeast Conference.
Tara Knapstein tallied 18 points to lead a quartet of UW-Parkside double-digit scorers as the Rangers’ women’s basketball team led wire-to-wire in its 84-70 non-conference victory over Davis & Elkins College on Sunday afternoon in Romeoville, Ill.
Parkside (3-0) won both of its games in the Flyer Challenge, hosted by Lewis University at Neil Carey Arena, after beating Alderson Broaddus (W.Va.) on Friday night.
