— Nick Fuller scored 37 points to lead Sun Prairie past visiting Janesville Parker, 73-57, in Big Eight Conference boys basketball Saturday night.

Fuller scored 15 points in the second quarter, when the Cardinals outscored the Vikings, 20-13, to build a 36-25 halftime lead.


“He was very tough to stop,” Parker coach Ryan Masterson said of Fuller. “He was hitting inside and outside.”


Fuller, a 6-foot-6 junior, connected for five of Sun Prairie’s seven three-pointers.


Andrew Somerville scored 18 points, including 11 from the free-throw line, and Charlie Grafft added 12 points for Parker (6-14, 4-12 Big Eight). Tanner Smith added 10 points.


“I thought Tanner Smith did a nice job passing the ball and rebounding,” said Masterson. “We looked good at times when we executed our offense, but we had too many breakdowns.”


Sun Prairie improved to


14-6 overall and 11-5 in the Big Eight.


Parker hosts Craig at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
