The 2nd and 3rd seeded girls basketball teams in Division-4 will face off tomorrow evening at the Resch Center in the 43rd annual WIAA Girls State Tournament. #3 Manitowoc Lutheran takes on 2-seed, Melrose-Mindoro….in a scheduled 8:15 tip-off Thursday night. Lancers Coach Mike Behnke tells Tim Strews emotions are running high at Lutheran High this week.
Behnke spoke about the unbeaten Mustangs and their conference the Dairyland Large.
Coach Behnke said ’unlike’ trying to contain one-big-scorer, as was the case with Sectional Final opponent Milwaukee Academy of Science, Melrose-Mindoro has more balanced scoring.
With a longer college court (by 10-feet) Behnke talked about team depth perhaps being a factor.
Coverage of the state tournament game will be on 980-WCUB & cubradio.com..beginning at 7:55. The ‘1st’ semifinal Thursday evening pits top seed Aquinas and #4 Crandon..at 6:35.
