Area teams will struggle to escape the loaded southern bracket of the Middleton Sectional, which includes four Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association ranked teams in No. 2 Brodhead, No. 5 Marshall and No. 10 Lakeside Lutheran in addition to No. 8 Whitewater.
Top-seeded Brodhead and Iowa recruit Carly Mohns are the favorite, having steamrolled through the Rock Valley Conference while earning quality wins over Madison La Follette, Southwest Conference leader Dodgeville and SWAL power Cuba City.
Rock Valley North titlist Whitewater lost a thrilling 62-59 overtime decision at Brodhead on Jan. 30 and can't be overlooked. Whippets' standout Brooke Trewyn matched Mohns for game-high honors with 24 points in that meeting and averages 16 ppg. Sarah Schumacher and Myriama Smith-Traore also average in double digits for a unit that also has beaten Stoughton, Wilmot and Clinton handily.
Whitewater coach Judy Harms said her team is battle tested after overcoming several roadblocks this year.
“The Whippets are full strength and eager to keep the season going,” Harms said. “There are a ton of excellent and well-coached teams in our regional bracket, and the key to us playing well will be to continue solid teamwork. I'm looking for our returning players to lead the way in keeping our composure as tournament draws closer with games against tough opponents.
“All season long I've been emphasizing to do the things 'we' do well, and the entire key to our season will come from within,” Harms added. “We obviously would rather be sitting in Brodhead's position, however, we've had to overcome some early-season injuries and fight sickness … to get to the point we are today. With all that being said, we are fortunate to have received the No. 2 seed, realizing the road to success will not come easy. There are going to be many excellent teams disappointed, and hopefully we are not one of them.”
