NIAGARA, Wis. - Niagara wrapped up the boys hoops regular season with its 15th win, knocking down Gillett 61-38 in M&O Conference action Tuesday night.

"They are a lot bigger than us," Badgers coach Jim Hoogland said. "We switched to a matchup zone, and that enabled us to compensate for their height advantage."

Zach Zychowski led all scorers with 15 points for the Badgers. He hit three triples in the game. Jordan Zawada (13) and TJ Liebergen (10) also hit double figures.
