WBY Shootout: What to Look Forward to on Friday
Everything. I am looking forward to everything tomorrow, but I will highlight just five games that really stick out.
- West De Pere vs. Milwaukee Washington – Noon – West De Pere was able to handle their first game against a Division I team from the Milwaukee area, but they’ll have see if they can do it again tomorrow against Milwaukee Washington. Cody Schwartz (interest from Creighton, Marquette, Nebraska and Northern Iowa) and Chandler Diekvoss (Richmond commit) put on a show on Friday when both scored over 20 points against Racine Case, so I’ll be interested to see what they have in store for tomorrow.
- Milwaukee Marquette vs. Neenah – 1:30 p.m. – Neenah has gone unbeaten thus far this season and are led by senior point guard Adam Pohlman (interest from several Division I schools) and junior Matt Heldt (interest from both Marquette and Wisconsin). I’ll be interested to see if Milwaukee Marquette can recover from a rough night against Wisconsin Lutheran and push Neenah tomorrow.
- Rice Lake vs. Dominican – 6 p.m. – This is the matchup everyone was circling going into the event. Rice Lake features Henry Ellenson (interest from Marquette and Wisconsin among others) and is the #6 ranked team in Division 2, while Dominican features Diamond Stone (interest from Marquette and Wisconsin among others) and is the #1 ranked team in Division 4. This should be an absolute battle and quite possibly the game of the day.
- Milwaukee Vincent vs. Germantown – 7:30 p.m. – Germantown is the best team in the state and sports the state’s longest winning streak of all-time at 65 straight games. They also feature three players committed to Division I schools: Lamonte Bearden (Buffalo), Jake Showalter (North Dakota State) and Evan Wesenberg (North Dakota State). Vincent is no slouch though as the storied basketball program once again boasts a very good team.
- De Pere vs. Arrowhead – 9 p.m. – I am really looking forward to watching De Pere because of junior guard Brevin Pritzl (interest from several Division I programs). I had the privilege of watching Pritzl battle Germantown at a jam-packed Homestead High School last year during the Division I playoffs and he was unafraid of the powerhouse Warhawks. Pritzl’s range extends to the parking lot and he does not back down from anyone.
