Jaden was a wizard with the ball this past weekend at the WIAA State Tournament in Madison. His ball-handling and shot-making abilities were on full display in the Kohl Center throughout the two games.
New Glarus, the four seed, matched up with undefeated and D4 reigning champ Roncalli in the first semi-final game. Jaden willed his team to victory, scoring 21 points, collecting 5 rebounds, and adding 4 assists as the Knights won 44-41. New Glarus would match up with one-loss Lourdes Academy in the D4 finals Saturday. Jaden's quickness and tenacity led New Glarus to a 67-62 win. He had 22 points and 4 assists. Jaden's ability to get to the rim and facilitate to open teammates was a huge reason why New Glarus took home the gold ball for the first time in program history.
