Boys basketball roundup: Tremper advances to regional semifinals


The Tremper boys basketball team stormed back from a one-point halftime deficit to keep its season alive Tuesday night.

Tremper outscored Janesville Parker 47-32 in the second half of a 75-61 home victory in a WIAA Division-1 regional quarterfinal at Tremper.

The 15th-seeded Trojans will take on No. 2 seed Racine Park in a WIAA Division-1 regional semifinal at 7 p.m. Friday at Park.

Tremper relied on balanced scoring to oust Parker from the tournament. Jyon Young, Blake Hoffman and Jake Gross led the way with 16 points apiece. Trey Cardona added 12 points, followed by Zayshan Coleman with 10.

Tremar Curry hit six shots from the field and sparked the Vikings with a game-high 19 points.

The Trojans snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 8-15 with the win. The Vikings ended their season with a 4-19 record.

The 10th-seeded and visiting Pacers made a second-half charge, but it wasn’t enough to overtake the 37-20 halftime lead built by seventh-seeded St. Francis in a regional quarterfinal.

Sophomore Quentin Bolton led Shoreland, which outscored St. Francis 42-37 in the second half, with 21 points. Brandon Freitag and Josh Edmundson each scored 15, while Sawyer Smith chipped in nine.

The Pacers finished their season 6-17.

Shoreland coach Paul Strutz, however, said he’s excited about the progress made by a team that featured a number of sophomores and juniors. He also wanted to thank his four seniors, Charlie Riley, Andrew Koestler, Sam Olson and Jordan Teska.

“I loved working with the kids,” Strutz said. “Really enjoyed them.”
