Sports Round Up – February 23rd, 2021

Caledonia BBB Beats Rushford-Peterson 72-69; Improves to 11-1

You have to give credit to Rushford-Peterson, they gave #3 (2A) Caledonia all they could handle last night. Three Trojans scored in double figures, including Luke O’Hare with a 19-4-3 stat line, and at halftime Rush-Pete was in front 40-36. But anyone who has tried to take down Caledonia football over the last decade or so knows that when you get a window of opportunity, you need to step on the gas because the Warriors can always comeback. Austin Klug led the way in the second half and finished with 23 points.


Viterbo MBB and WBB Fall in NSAA Quarterfinals

The postseason push for V-Hawk basketball was short lived, with the men falling to four-seed Dakota State 95-88 and women also losing 59-55. The men did shoot over 50% for the game, including 25 from Onalaska senior Noah Fredrickson, 22 from sophomore Jack Monis and 20 from junior Robert Cunitz, while La Crosse’s Sophie Leinfelder led the V-Hawk women off the bench with 14 points.


Bucks Beat T’Wolves 139-112; Khris Middleton Snubbed for All-Star Game

The Bucks put up 79 first-half points en route to a 139-112 win over the Timberwolves at Fiserv Forum. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 37 points as Milwaukee won its third straight, but it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Forward Khris Middleton was left of the All-Star reserves list, despite averaging 20.5 points, six rebounds, and a career-high 5.7 assists per game. It would have been his third-straight All-Star appearance. The Bucks continue their home stand tomorrow against Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans.
