Each week WSN 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.
Wausau already had the conference title wrapped up, but the Huskies closed the regular season on a high note, holding off an improving Barron squad 70-63 last Wednesday. Barron tried to make it a game late, rallying from a 14-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter before Wausau ultimately closed things down for a seven-point win. Patience Pyan (Merrill HS) was outstanding as always with 40 points, while Brittany Ange (Athens HS) added 13. Barron had four players in double-figures, led by 19 from Brandi Gauthier (Bruce HS).
Playing its first game in two-and-a-half weeks, Fox Cities closed out a strong second semester with a 51-23 victory over Washington last Wednesday. Lilly Scheffler (Fox Valley Lutheran HS) had a game-high 13 points, while Marilee Williamson (Appleton North HS) had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, and Emma Chase (Wautoma HS) pulled down 18 boards.
The match-ups are set for the 2020 Wisconsin Collegiate Conference Women's Basketball Tournament. The play-in game between Marshfield and Washington will be held on Saturday. The semifinals and finals are at JustAGame Fieldhouse for the WCC State Tournament on Saturday, February 22nd and Sunday, February 23rd.
