Dubuque Senior also topped Madison La Follette, 70-57.

Badger (4-12) led 45-43 after three quarters, but Hempstead made six of eight field-goal attempts in the final period to pull out the victory.

With the Badgers trailing 59-57, two turnovers in the final 1:20 spoiled their chances for a winning rally.
