Basketball Recap 11/30/18: Badger Conference Play Begins

WIAA Basketball DL

Badger Conference play began Friday night, with an overtime win by Oregon one of the night's highlights. Also, Wisconsin Dells used a buzzer-beating three to beat top-ranked Mineral Point in non-conference action.

GAME SUMMARY

Monroe at Fort Atkinson

Hot first-half shooting and solid defense gave Fort Atkinson a one-point halftime lead, in which they were tied or held the lead for the entire first half. Freshman Carson Baker drilled five three-point shots to pace the Black Hawks, and Monroe didn't score a basket until nearly six minutes into the first half. The second half was a different story, as the Cheesemakers quickly took the lead on their first possession of the second half, and after the teams traded baskets for a few minutes, Monroe put together a 19-0 run at about 14 minutes remaining in the game to put away Fort Atkinson. A big steal and a dunk by Cade Meyer was one of the catalysts for the big run, which saw Monroe lead by as many as 20 points before settling for a 16-point victory over Fort Atkinson.
