Badgers drop ‘defensive battle’

Girls Basketball

NIAGARA, Wis. — Crivitz stayed atop the M & O Conference girls basketball standings with a 33-22 win over Niagara on Friday.

“A defensive battle,” said Niagara coach Karl Lamoreaux. “We were happy to give them a good game.”

The Badgers (4-2, 3-2) held Crivitz (7-1, 5-0) to just 18 percent shooting, but could muster little offense of their own. The Wolverines led 19-14 at halftime.

Jasmine Racine paced Niagara with 11 points. Crivitz was led by Chloe Gruszynski’s 15 points.

Niagara won the jayvee game. The Badgers will host Florence on Monday.
