MARSHFIELD – In a battle of the two teams on top of the Wisconsin Valley Conference standings, the Marshfield and Stevens Point boys basketball teams didn’t disappoint.

The lead changed hands seven times in the final 4½ minutes, with the five-time defending conference champion Panthers holding on at the end and defeating Marshfield 59-56 on Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.

Stevens Point, winners of the past three WIAA Division 1 state titles, improves to 10-3 overall and 6-1 in the WVC, while Marshfield drops to 7-7 and 5-2 in conference play.

Point senior guard Drew Blair and Marshfield junior Reed Miller traded scores in the final 3 minutes.

Blair, who scored 44 of the Panthers’ 59 points, made one of two free throws with 4:13 to go to give them a 51-50 lead.

Miller and Blair traded baskets, and the lead in the game, before Miller hit again on a leaner in the lane with 2:24 left to put the Tigers up 54-53.

After a basket from Andrew Erdman, Miller scored again in the lane and Marshfield led 56-55 with 1:35 left.

Blair made four-straight free throws and Marshfield failed to score again to provide the final margin.

After two missed free throws by Stevens Point with 13.6 seconds left, Marshfield couldn’t get an open look at a potential game-tying 3-pointer and Miller was forced to heave a 35-footer at the buzzer that banged off the backboard as the buzzer sounded.

“They’re really good at taking things away,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “We had 11 days off, then no school (Monday), talk about over-thinking things. SPASH is SPASH, and until somebody beats them, they are still the state champs.

“Drew Blair is pretty good. At times, we played really good defense on him and he still knocked shots down. We battled and hit a couple of shots in the lane, and when it’s possession-by-possession and they score you have to score. It’s a tough loss, it was a grind, a battle.”

An 11-0 run by Blair put the Panthers up 24-17 in the first half before the Tigers climbed back ahead with a 12-0 run that included 3-pointers from Anthony Posteluk and Tommy Olson.

Marshfield led 31-28 at halftime and 41-37 five minutes into the second half before Point had a 7-0 run, which included five points by Blair, to go back ahead.

A 3-pointer by Olson and two free throws by Seth Anderson, who led Marshfield with 21 points, tied the game at 50-50 with 5:27 left, providing the stage for the battle to the end as both teams left all they had on the floor.

“It’s good that we have one day and then we have Rapids,” Scheuer said. “Our season isn’t over.”

Marshfield hosts Wisconsin Rapids at 7:15 p.m. Thursday. The game will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com.

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield scored eight unanswered points in the first 1:17 of the game and never looked back in an 86-53 blowout of Wausau East in Wisconsin Valley Conference boys basketball action Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.

Seth Anderson drilled three 3-pointers and scored 15 of his game-high 29 points in the opening 5 minutes as the Tigers (6-6, 4-1 Wisconsin Valley Conference) pushed their lead to 24-10 and they led by double digits the rest of the way.

Anderson, a senior forward, has scored in double digits in all but one game this season, and has scored at least 25 points in the past five games to push his season average over 22 points per game.

“Nobody has worked harder,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “There’s usually a correlation with time spent on something and improvement. Not only on the court, but in the weight room, that’s why he’s got 40 of 50 schools calling asking ‘Where’s Seth Anderson going to school?’ He continues to improve in season, he’s getting better every game and every practice.”

Reed Miller hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final 3 minutes of the first half, including a double-clutch shot at the first-half buzzer, to give the Tigers a 45-31 lead at the break.

After East (1-9, 0-4 WVC) scored the first four points of the second half to cut it to 10, Marshfield ripped off 14 straight points, which included a 3-pointer by Isaac Meverden, and a three-point play and two more baskets from Anderson, to make it 59-35.

“Isaac and John (Reigel) were the two guys that gave us energy,” Scheuer said. “Isaac played hard the whole game, got a couple of big rebounds, and John had eight rebounds, six offensive rebounds. Grant Urban gave us really good minutes and he’s getting better.

“I’ve got a lot of guys that can make plays on the offensive side, I need those same guys to make them on the defensive side.”

Meverden finished with 14 points, Miller added 12, and Urban and Reigel contributed 11 and nine points, respectively, both season-highs.

Urban, who recently entered the starting lineup, has helped improve the team on the defensive end, as well as take pressure off sophomore Anthony Posteluk, who has moved to a reserve role and flourished as well.

“I saw that he was coming on in practice,” Scheuer said of Urban. “Some of the dunks, the athletic ability, his ability to defense, he wasn’t afraid to set a screen. Sometimes you can’t have five guys that are always looking for their shot, you have to have one or two even to set screens and not really care if they get theirs. He gets excited when he gets a rebound, takes a charge, or scores from two or three feet.

“Anthony has continued to progress coming off the bench. I think it’s paying off. Not that he did anything wrong, I just wanted him to feel more comfortable.”

Marshfield hosts Wausau West on Friday.

MARSHFIELD – A 4 ½-minute stretch early in the second half doomed the Marshfield boys basketball team on Tuesday night in its nonconference game against Rhinelander.

After starting the second half on a 7-0 run to open up a nine-point lead, the Tigers turned the ball over four times in five possessions and Rhinelander ripped off 16 points in a row on its way to a 64-61 victory at Marshfield High School.

A three-point play by Seth Anderson, who led Marshfield with 31 points, helped Marshfield build a 40-31 lead 3 minutes into the second half.

Suddenly, Rhinelander’s trapping defense started to cause problems for the Tigers.

The Hodags (9-1) scored on seven-straight possessions on their 16-0 run to take a 47-40 lead, and they would not trail again.

Owen White, a Michigan Tech recruit, scored 10 of his 28 points during the run that eventually ended when Reed Miller scored with 9:46 to go for Marshfield.

“I’m not surprised,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “We’ve seen White for four years and they do such a great job of getting him in a position to score. When you have a 6-foot-6 kid that can shoot, you have to defend.”

The Tigers (4-6) pulled to within three on two free throws by Anderson, and got it down to 58-56 on a 3-pointer from Brant Bohman with 1:00 remaining.

Rhinelander pushed the lead back to 62-56 on two free throws by Reese Flores and a basket from Brad Quade, before Anderson hit two more free throws and Miller drilled a 3-point from the left corner with 23 seconds left to bring Marshfield to within a point.

After two free throws by Quade, Marshfield had a final chance to tie it with a 3-pointer, but couldn’t get an open attempt and Miller’s desperation shot at the buzzer fell short.

Marshfield had 19 turnovers, 12 in the second half, and was just 6 of 12 at the free throw line in the final 6 minutes.

“Turnovers and free throws, at every and any level, will make or break you,” Scheuer said. “We made a few adjustments on my part, and I probably shouldn’t have. They called a timeout, so sometimes as a coach you think, ‘Maybe I need to make an adjustment,’ and I didn’t need to. We were doing fine.

“I always tell the guys that, obviously they need to make improvements and clean some things up, but so do I. I self-assess a lot, and hopefully not only will they improve, but so will I and let them play.”

Marshfield plays at D.C. Everest on Friday in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield boys basketball team has climbed back to the .500 mark and did so in impressive fashion.

An 11-4 run to start the second half put the Tigers up by double figures and they led by at least 10 points the rest of the way in beating Merrill 84-63 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.

The win is Marshfield’s second in a row and evens its record at 4-4 overall and puts them at 2-1 in the WVC. Merrill drops to 3-3 and 2-1 in conference play.

Seth Anderson scored 30 points and Reed Miller added 20 for the Tigers.

“I thought our defense was solid,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “They (Merrill) have a lot of experience. They got in some foul trouble, and so did we. This is a bigger win than just a conference win, because they are in our sectional now. That’s a quality win for us.”

Marshfield used a 7-0 run to take a 17-10 lead 7½ minutes into the game, and led the rest of the way.

Anderson scored 12 of the Tigers’ final 14 points of the first half and Marshfield led 39-33 at the break.

After a basket by Quinn Steckbauer to start the half for Merrill, Marshfield ripped off an 11-2 run highlighted by six points from Anderson and a 3-point by sophomore guard Anthony Posteluk, to push its lead to 50-37.

Merrill came as close as 10 on two occasions before the Tigers blew the game open.

A 7-0 run ended with a three-point play by Miller, and Marshfield made all 14 of its free throws in the second half, including six straight from Posteluk in the final 2 minutes.

“Hopefully we’re starting to get in the mode where we play a certain way and we don’t look at ‘we play this team or we play that team’,” Scheuer said. “We have to play at that ‘10’ level every night. We’ve been doing some things in practice to try to simulate that, but you really can’t do that, you just hope it carries over to the game.

“A lot of times you are happy with the effort but not the performance, it doesn’t always match, but tonight it matched.”

Marshfield plays a nonconference game at Eau Claire North on Thursday before a 12-day break during the holidays. The Tigers’ next home game is Jan. 2 against Rhinelander.
