Each week, WCC media partner WisSports.net will take a look at the happenings in the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference, which includes many of the two-year campuses in the UW system. A look back at the big performances and news from the week before, a look ahead to some of the big games coming up, plus a Player of the Week will be featured.

Looking Back

Last Wednesday was a busy night with five games to close out the unofficial first half of the season. Baraboo scored a big-time comeback victory over Marshfield, winning 60-54 after trailing 23-16 at halftime. The Spirits erupted for 44 points after the break, as four players hit double figures, including double-doubles from Chinedum Maduka (Madison East) and John Franklin. The win keeps Baraboo in a tie atop the West Division standings with Richland.

Speaking of Richland, they took down Rock 87-64 as nine different players scored, led by 25 points from Jalen Alexander (Kickapoo), who made seven, three-point attempts. 

The big game in the East Divisinon saw Sheboygan get past Waukesha, 79-66. While Marinette sits atop the division, Sheboygan now has a half game lead over Waukesha and Manitowoc.

Looking Ahead

Teams take a break until after the holidays now, with action resuming on January 4th.

WCC Men's Basketball Player of the Week: Jalen Alexander, Richland

Richland is tied atop the West Division of the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference heading into the holiday break after a dominating 87-64 win against Rock last Wednesday. Jalen Alexander, a first-year player from Kickapoo High School, connected on seven-of-12, three-point attempts for a game-high 25 points, to go with seven rebounds, a pair of assists, a block, and a steal. It is the third time this season that Alexander has made seven, three-point baskets in a game.
