3rd PLACE GAME
at St. Thomas
2A 98, 3A 60

The 2A team put their stamp on the championship game with the biggest victory margin, and highest point total in a championship game, since the start of the class system. 2A used the same team based play in putting their stamp on the 2008 series. Balance was a key word for the 2As. Seven players had 8 or more for the champs, while 3A only had 3. The 3 point barrage that sunk the 4As wasn't quite as potent, but the 2As shot .515 for the game compared to the .293 for 3A. The old saying is most definitely true--"If you shoot good, you look good."

Part of the 2A magic was they looked for each other, and didn't mind giving the ball up, hence the good shots. It is important to get the ball to the right people in the right spots and before the defense knows what is happening.

Another factor in the 2A win was the line and 2A made more than 3A attempted (24-14). The foul differential was not that huge (12-15). 2A was just more aggressive in attacking the basket and 3A picked their fouls up that way.

Kassie Robinson gave 3A the only lead they would have all day with a three on the first possession for the bigger schools. 2A heated up on their third possession with four straight scores. Two of them were on second chancers. Alex Montgomery had the hot hand for the 2As with 11 first half points. Brianna Mastey topped her with 12 for the 3As. Montgomery's team was up 44-34 at half.

2A did not have a lot of down time in the second half. They did have scoring runs of four, five and eight as 2A was scoring at will. The 2As had a 16-6 run during that time. The next dramatic question was whether the 2As could also get to the Century. The champs reached the 90 mark with 3:18 to go. With 20 seconds left it looked like they may get the ball back. They did but only for 3 seconds, not enough time to launch an attack.

Last year 2A was fourth in the four team event.

MINNESOTA COACHES ALL STAR
3rd PLACE GAME
at St. Thomas
4A 100, 1A 65

4A, not used to playing in the third place game, ramped up their defense in the first half and hit the century mark in a 100-65 win over the smaller school class A team.

The beginnings had the small towners up 6-1 as they scored on their first three possessions. But there was to be no replay of the night before. The last 1A lead came at 9-8 after a three by Jenny Noordmans. After that 4A rock and rolled to 48-18 finish in the half. A whopping 33-5 advantage in turnover points for the game was part of the equation. 4A ran on turnovers, but they also ran off missed 1A shots. Just in the first half they had 24 points in transition. 1A had droughts of 8 (4A 11-0 run at that time); and again 8 later in the half. 4A put their pedal to the metal with seven straight scoring situations--14-2 run--9 of which were on transition.

There really was no mystery in the second half other than if 4A would crack 100. The bigger schools reached 90 with six minutes left. They didn't get the 100th point until Ephesia Holmes scored after a steal and that came right at the buzzer.

Turnover differential for the game was a +16 for 4A (24-8). Shots were hard to come by in front of the two point line for 1A and they resorted more to the long bombs.

In 2005, the last time these two team played it was 1A beating the 4A squad 62-48. Since this new series began 4A's record is 6-2, 1A is 3-5.

Out & About: 2A/4A

This game took place Saturday, April 19
MINNESOTA COACHES ALL STAR GAME
at St. Thomas
2A 87, 4A 70

Many people looked at this score as an upset. But for those that follow the blog during the high school season know that 2A had some deep talent this year. Coach Teas & I thought the 2A state tournament was going to be the most competitive. That talent rose up and took the 4A down 87-70 in the second game Saturday at St. Thomas. 2A played the game like the old Bill Russell Boston Celtics-- as a team-- while the 4A played the style angle like the Los Angeles Lakers. The fact was that 4A had seven D1 players on the roster while 2A had three. 4A plays tough competition day in and day out. All the 4A players travel around the country in the summer tournaments. But 2A were not intimidated by the bigger schools and had could shoot, shoot, shoot. I think one big difference is 2A had shooters on their roster, while 4A had scorers. The smaller schools also took better care of the ball and didn't breakdown under the 4A pressure. Another factor in 2As advantage--they had 8 players 5-10 or bigger compared to 4A with five. That advantage is pronounced on the perimeter. All were potent ingredients in this upset. This was the first time 4A lost in a first round game in this series.

Kamille Wahlin got things going first with a pull up after the fourth 2A possession. On the next 2A possession Becca Friestleben knocked down the first of five 3s. 2A did have a mini drought of five but 4A didn't take advantage of the down time. 4A did tie the game at 9 on a three by Brittnye McSparron. 4A did have a lead at 13-11 after a rebound basket by Ephesia Holmes. On the next eight 4A possessions they were only able to find the bottom of the basket once. 2A didn't take time off and went of a 8-2 run to lead 19-15. Friestleben with another 3 put 2A up for good. The biggest class was able to get the margin down to one twice, the last at 23-22, but 2A always had an answer. The answer this time was a Taylor Voss three. 2A had a 9-4 run in four straight possessions to take a 41-32 lead. Again the 2As struck gold behind the arc with Jenny Gilbertson dropping the bomb. 2A led 48-39 at half. Kiara Buford had 10 points to lead 4A. Friestleben led the 2A with 9.

Friestleben drained her 4th three on the first possession of the second half. The 2As pushed the lead to 14 before a five possession drought breathed new life into the 4As. They managed to cut the margin to 58-51 after a three by Holmes. The give and take of the game, the push the pull kept the margin in the 12 to 8 point range. 4A had one last great push with five straight scores. The problem was 2A also managed to score during the same time. 2A led 76-68 with 6:29 left. Then there was a power outage. It affected both teams and lasted 14 possessions and three minutes. The 2As had 7 empty possessions but the power outage lasted one longer. It was a 1/13 finish for the big school. Meanwhile the 2As finished up with six straight scores. Wahlin started it off with a jumper and four different 2A players scored afterward. It wasn't the 4A had chances, sometimes they had multiple chances on each possession. The proverbial Davids slayed the Goliaths 87-70.

2A only had nine players in action. Renae Henjum of New London-Spicer was out due to a knee injury.
Albany coach Jon Noreen was sporting a clean face. After the state tournament win he was forced to shave the moustache off by the team.

MINNESOTA COACHES ALL STAR GAME
at St. Thomas
3A 71, 1A 53

The 3A all stars stopped 1A 71-53 in the first all star match up at St. Thomas.

Future Gopher Brianna Mastey started the scoring for 3A from a pass from rival Casey Mann of Rogers. The bigger class never trailed. 1A had a pretty slow beginning with a 1/11 start with five turnovers to begin the game. 1A did start flowing offensively a bit later as they scored four straight times to cut the margin to 14-11. 3A pushed out to 20-13 after a lay up by Kassie Robinson, but 1A battled back with a 12-6 run. 1A cut the margin to 26-25 after a three by Megan Cleveland. That was to be 1A's last basket of the half. Aaryn Booker on the next possession scored on a reverse lay up for 3A. 1A tried the 3ball the next three times down the court. As it was 1A was dry for the last seven chances of the second half. 3A had a four point possession with a &1 chance for Booker. She missed the rebound, but 3A retained the ball and Mann scored on a drive. Mastey finished the half with a lay up to make it 36-25.

There was not too much drama in the second half. A 13-6 run at the start of the half put the game firmly in the bigger schools hands. 3A's biggest lead came at 59-36.

Turnovers were to be a theme for 1A throughout the weekend. The bigger faster, quicker players exposed the ball handling skills of the smallest class. Turnovers lead to transition baskets and 3A had 15 more points off turnovers. 3A also dominated the paint with a 22 point advantage inside. Most of that can be traced to Brianna Mastey with 16 points. She was the only player to crack double digits for either team.

Ashley Walterman of GHEC had a bus load of fans at the game. However she suffered a concussion on Friday night in practice and was limited to only two minutes of action. Her fans chanted for her appearance later in the game, but as a precaution she remained on the sidelines.

Also both games used the shot clock. Each team had 30 second violations, mainly because they were unaware of the time.

SOUTHERN MINNY ELITE 49, TEAM WI RED 15s 36

Southern Minny Elite made it a clean sweep for Minnesota teams vs Wisconsin teams in the games I viewed on Saturday. The key moment came in the second half when SME went on a 16-2 run to break open a 24-20 halftime score. Both teams were not at full strength, like most summer teams, dealing with other scheduling conflicts. TWR15s had most of their guard crew gone and had to rely on others to carry the load. That played a part in the turnover count 26 for TWR15 and 8 for SME.

SME scored on the first two possessions with a Renae Pecarina three to make it 5-0. SME soon built it to 9-2. TWR15 scored once in their first seven possessions, three of which were turnovers. SME pushed out to a 22-12 lead with 3:08 left. TWR15 finished the half with an 8-2 run to make it 24-20. Rebekah Aase had six points for SME in the first half. Jen Wilkinson had seven points for TWR15 including a 3.

The second half provide SME with the coup de gras. The 16-2 run included three 3s for SME. But SME later in the half stalled out with a six possession drought. TWR15 used that down time to mount an 8-0 run that cut the margin to 44-30. The margin wouldn't get any closer.

METRO STARS WHITE 55, FOX VALLEY HUSTLE 37

Metro Stars White didn't follow the game plan like the first two games I saw in Menomonie. They did not build a lead early, but trailed 11-6 before catching fire. They did use a strong defense in the second half to put distance between themselves and the Hustle. MSW did have two defensive stops of six and a row.

Fox Valley Hustle wasn't as big as MSW, but early on they crashed the offensive boards for 7 of the first 11 points. Once MSW started closing down second shots the Minnesota team started to come back. MSW scored five straight times, capped off by a five point possession, to take a 19-16 lead. On that possession Tess Komarek scored with a &1 opportunity. The free throw didn't fall, but MSW retained the ball. Eventually Carissa Wolyniec dropped a trey from the left wing. That was a 13-5 run that put MSW on the way. FVH went dry eight straight possessions with four ending up as turnovers. At the end of the half Karin Gibson dropped two consecutive 3s to push the score 26-17 for MSW. At half it was 26-19. Gibson had 8 for MSW.

FVH closed to 28-22 early in the half. That was as close as the margin was going to be. MSW went on a 13-2 run with six different Whites scoring to make it 41-24. Gibson again drained a three and had a free throw to lead MSW with four points in the run. MSW had one sequence during the run where they scored on five straight possessions. Meanwhile FVH went dry six possessions. After that it was fairly even the rest of the way.

FURY 43, TEAM WI RED WILDBERG 30

This game had similarities to the first game I saw on Saturday with the Fury taking an early 7-2 lead. Team Wisconsin battling back to take a lead, followed by another shut down in the second half. The Fury out scored TWRW 14-0 to finish the game.

The Fury used transition and a 3 by Keely Brennan to take the 7-2 lead. Team Wisconsin tied it up at seven with their own three by Nikole Wildberg. The Fury's Michelle Tobin scored a three point play the old fashioned way to push their lead out to 12-8. Then the Fury froze on offense for 11 possessions. TWRW used that down time to go up 16-12, again with a 3 ball by Wildberg. That was to be her final points of the game. The Fury regained their balance and went on a 9-2 run with Emily Kaus capping it off with a &1 to finish up 21-18.

The Fury maintained their lead for the first portion in the second half with a 29-26 lead with 10 minutes left. TWRW had a brief 30-29 lead after a lay up by Emily McCullick. After that TWRW was shut down for the game. 16 straight empty trips frustrated the Wisconsinites. They had five turnovers in that stretch, but three of those came late. So they had plenty of chances to connect, but the temperatures plummeted to -10 below. As far as the Fury, they used second chancers for 10 of their last 14 points.

Combined in these two games the Wisconsin teams were 0/34 down the home stretch. Brrrr.

43 HOOPS ZUCK 50, TEAM WI RED WHITE/GUDMUNSEN 38

It was a game of runs and droughts as 43 Hoops Zuck used a strong start offensively with a 10-2 run, and then slammed the door shut at the end with an 18-2 run to beat Team WI Red White/Gudmunsen 50-38. Those two runs combined gave 43 HZ a 28-4 advantage. TWRWG outscored 43HZ 34-22 the rest of the game.

43HZ started off by scoring on six of their first seven possessions for a blazing start and eventually a 15-4 lead. Melissa Borstner started things off with a basket and later added another in the run on a steal and lay up to help 43HZ to their early advantage. TWRWG had three turnovers in their first five possessions which didn't help their cause. The game turned on a dime with TWRWG holding 43HZ scoreless for 12 possessions while they went on a 19-0 run. 10 of those points came on second chancers. With Wisconsin up 23-15 43HZ had to get something going. That something was Amanda Barton who scored from the right corner and then later hit a three to cut the margin to 23-20. 43HZ also used their pressure defense for four points on steals and easy shots. At the break TWRWG led 29-25. Barton had 8 for 43HZ while Aysa Sellers had 7 for TWRWG.

The Wisconsinites didn't score on their first five possessions while 43 Hoops tied it up at 29 on a three by Tess Lueders and then one free throw from Borstner. TWRWG regained the lead, the largest coming at 36-23 after a left corner shot from Jess Withey. Then the lights went out for TWRWG. They went 18 long, dry possessions before scoring again, basically 12 minutes without tickling the twine. Barton started the comeback for 43HZ with five of the first seven points in an 18-0 run. TWRWG finally scored with 24 seconds left on a lay up by Sellars, but it was way too little and way too late to make any move.
