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.
Last Wednesday was a busy night with five games to close out the unofficial first half of the season.

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.
