STEVENS POINT – The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) Board of Control voted at its meeting on June 22 to implement a 35-second shot clock for varsity high school basketball games beginning in the 2019-20 season.

Wisconsin will become the ninth state to have a shot clock for high school basketball.

While the reaction has been mixed from fans on social media, Marshfield High School girls basketball coach Heidi Michaelis said she was in favor of the change.

“I think it’s good for the game,” said Michaelis, who has a 293-90 record in 16 seasons at the helm. “It doesn’t really change my philosophy, although I have been known to grind out long possessions at the end of the game. It takes that ability away, but I think it keeps the game moving and exciting.

“Most of the time, I like playing faster anyway, so it doesn’t change much. Realistically, turnovers occur anyway during long possessions.”

Marshfield High School Athletic Director Nathan Delany said the process began with a recommendation by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association to implement the shot clock beginning in the 2018-19 season. The idea first went to the Coaches committee, which voted in favor of it unanimously, then went to a pair of advisory boards that voted against it. The Board of Control has the final say and voted 6-4 for it during last week’s annual June meeting.

The implementation was pushed back a year, to 2019-20, to give member schools more time to find funds for the new equipment and to adequately train staff to run the clock.

The placement of the clocks has yet to be finalized, and Delany said he did not know if it would be required to be in a certain spot at all gyms.

Delany said his early estimate for the cost is approximately $3,500, and he would like to have everything in place by the end of the 2018-19 season so that the Marshfield teams and coaches can have access to it during the summer of 2019.

“Some smaller schools have expressed concerns with the cost and having to have another person trained at the scoring table, which is an ongoing cost,” Delany said. “I think it will both help and hurt the game. It should make for more fluid games and better basketball. I don’t necessarily disagree with some of that. It should bring more flow to games. But some teams, based on talent, have to play a certain way (more deliberate).

“I think there will be more blowouts and eliminate teams that are methodical and want to slow it down. I thought a 45-second clock would have been perfect, allowing teams to work through the clock if that’s the way they play.”

The addition of the shot clock will be the second major change to the game in Wisconsin, as high school games went to 18-minute halves, rather than 8-minute quarters, beginning in the 2015-16 season. That rule change was designed to improve the flow of the game and eliminate teams holding on to the ball for long periods at the end of quarters. The shot clock will no doubt do that as well, changing strategy for a lot of teams.

Marshfield varsity boys basketball coach Scott Scheuer said he doesn’t see it being a problem for the way he coaches, stating that by looking at some tape from last season, the Tigers typically averaged between 24 and 26 seconds to put up a shot.

“That varies from year to year, depending on who is playing, and who you are playing,” said Scheuer, who led the Tigers to a 30-18 combined record the past two seasons, including an appearance in the WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinals last year. “We’ve (coaches) been talking about it for a while. I don’t know if it improves the game. Teams that aren’t as talented are at a disadvantage and I think there will be more lopsided games. The quality coaches will still be quality coaches and will figure it out.”

Other decisions made by the WIAA Board of Control concerning winter sports included: seeding the boys and girls basketball, boys hockey, and team wrestling state tournaments by the participating coaches beginning in the 2017-18 season; and to further discussion on a basketball tournament placement model that would categorize teams into “city”, “suburban”, “town”, and “rural” that could shake up placements in Divisions 3-5; a two-year experiment for having two divisions for the boys hockey playoffs and state tournament beginning in 2020.

A number of former local high school athletes have moved on to the next level and are playing sports collegiately across the country.

Periodically, MarshfieldAreaSports.com will publish a College Sports Roundup updating readers of some of those local athletes’ exploits at the collegiate level.

This is the third of three reports on area high school graduates that either recently finished their winter sport, or are just starting their spring sport in college.

Abby Baierl

Baierl starts for Francisan women’s basketball
Abby Baierl, a 2016 graduate of Marshfield Columbus Catholic High School, recently completed her freshman season on the Franciscan University women’s basketball team.

Baierl started 22 of 24 games this past season for the Lady Barons, scoring 11.3 points per game. She shot 37.4 percent from 3-point range (45 of 128) and also chipped in 5.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.

Baierl scored in double figures 13 times, including a season-high 28 in a win at Penn State-Altoona on Feb. 1.

Franciscan, located in Steubenville, Ohio, is an NCAA Division III school. The Lady Barons finished the season 3-21 overall and 3-15 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference.

Adam Fravert

Fravert sees increased time at Oshkosh
Adam Fravert, a 2016 Marshfield High School graduate, recently completed his freshman season on the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh men’s basketball team.

The former all-Wisconsin Valley Conference player played in 21 of the Titans’ 28 games this season, all in a reserve role, averaging 10.5 minutes, 2.1 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.

Oshkosh finished the season with a 17-11 record, including a 9-5 mark in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

The Titans lost 60-59 to UW-River Falls in the WIAC Tournament championship game on Feb. 25, and dropped its opener in the NCAA Division III Tournament to Hope College 87-85 on March 3.

Fravert came off the bench and played 16 minutes in the loss to Hope, scoring two points. He also had two rebounds and three assists.

Fravert had a season-high 13 points in a win at UW-Whitewater on Feb. 15, and was a perfect 3-for-3 shooting and scored seven points in the tournament game loss to River Falls.

Alexandra Hutchison

Hutchison running 200 at Winona
Alexandra Hutchison, a freshman on the Winona State (Minn.) University women’s track and field team, and a 2016 graduate of Marshfield Columbus Catholic High School, has been running in the 200 meters for the Warriors this spring.

Hutchison won the 200 in 25.85 seconds at the Wisconsin Shell Shocker on Feb. 17 in Madison, where Winona State, and NCAA Division II school, defeated numerous Division I programs and finished second overall in the team standings behind just host Wisconsin.

In her most recent event, Hutchison finished 15th in the preliminaries and did not qualify for the 200 finals at the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Indoor Meet at Minnesota State in Mankato on Feb. 25. She ran the event in 25.81 seconds.

Winona State begins its outdoor season Saturday at the Early Birdinal at crosstown Saint Mary’s University in Winona.

Bobby Pilz

Marshfield has four named to 2016-17 All-Wisconsin Valley Conference Boys Basketball Team

Marshfield senior guard Alec Hinson was one of six players named to the first team of the 2016-17 All-Wisconsin Valley Conference Boys Basketball Team, as voted on by the conference coaches.

Hinson averaged 11.8 points and 3.7 assists per game this season for the Tigers, who finished 8-4 and in second place in the Valley behind champion Stevens Point. Hinson was the top free throw shooter at 95.1 percent (39 of 41), and finished third in 3-point percentage at 44.8 percent in the conference.

Joining Hinson on the first team are Stevens Point senior Drew Blair, Stevens Point junior Joey Hauser, Wausau East senior Sawyer Schlindwein, Wausau West senior Jakob Tordsen, and Merrill junior Zach Mootz. Blair, Hauser, Schlindwein and Tordsen were unanimous picks to the first team.

Blair and Hauser were named Co-Players of the Year.

“To me Alec, in one word, stability,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “Not only was he a three-year starter, he was my point guard. I look at my point guard as my quarterback out there. He is extremely hard working. He has the confidence that he’s going to deliver, game after game after game.”

Scheuer and Stevens Point’s Scott Anderson were picked as Co-Coaches of the Year in the Valley.

After missing the first four conference games due to injury, Hauser returned and led the WVC in scoring (22.8), rebounding (10.0) and assist (5.6) per-game averages. Blair was second in scoring at 19.2 points per game.

Marshfield had three others earn all-conference honors.

Senior guard Ethan Posteluk was a second-team selection, with senior Grant Michaelis and junior Seth Anderson earning honorable mention accolades.

Posteluk finished tied for seventh in the conference in scoring at 13.3 points per game, and tied Hinson and D.C. Everest’s Dylan Ellenbecker, an honorable mention choice, for second in 3-pointers made with 26.

“Ethan worked hard on his game,” Scheuer said. “To have two guards as good as those two (Hinson and Posteluk), they were as good as any two in our conference. They feed off each other.”

Anderson shot 58 percent from the field and averaged 12.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in conference play. Michaelis shot 53 percent from the field, and chipped in 8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game for the Tigers, earning all-conference honorable mention status for the second-straight season.

2016-17 All-Wisconsin Valley Conference Boys Basketball Team
First team:
*Drew Blair, jr., Stevens Point; *Joey Hauser, jr., Stevens Point; *Sawyer Schlindwein, sr., Wausau East; *Jakob Tordsen, sr., Wausau West; Alec Hinson, sr., Marshfield; Zach Mootz, jr., Merrill. (* denotes unanimous selection).
Second team: Ethan Posteluk, sr., Marshfield; Riley Petersen, sr., D.C. Everest; Tommy Borta, sr., Wausau West; Zach Langemeier, jr., Wisconsin Rapids.

Marshfield boys basketball drops WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinal to No. 1-ranked Oshkosh North

APPLETON – The Marshfield boys basketball team did all it could to stay with No. 1-ranked Oshkosh North, but the Tigers were just not able to get over the hump in the second half.

North used a 17-5 run in the second half to take the lead and finished off the Tigers season with a 67-54 victory in a WIAA Division 1 boys basketball sectional semifinal Thursday night at Appleton North High School.

Oshkosh North (25-0) moves on to a sectional final against two-time defending D-1 state champion Stevens Point (21-4) at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Marshfield High School. Point beat Eau Claire North 62-55 on Thursday at Eau Claire Memorial.

North pulled out to a 22-12 lead before Marshfield (16-9) stormed back to take a 27-25 lead by halftime.

North’s run pushed it into the lead, and despite Marshfield cutting it to two at 54-52 with about 3 minutes to go, the Tigers couldn’t get back to even.

“The kids did everything I asked of them,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “We had to have less than 10 turnovers, I think we had seven or eight. We have to make free throws, we missed a few but we did that well. We didn’t rebound as well as we needed, but they left everything on the floor.”

Sophomore Reed Miller led the Tigers with 20 points, which included six 3-pointers.

After a 2-6 start to the season, including a season-opening loss to Oshkosh North and another to Stevens Point, the Tigers rallied to play their best basketball down the stretch.

Marshfield had its nine-game winning streak snapped with the loss, finishing the season 14-3 after the tough start. Two of those losses, again, were to Oshkosh North and Stevens Point.

“Anybody and everybody that was on the floor played all out and that’s what it took to stay close,” Scheuer said. “We needed to make a few shots to keep it at a basket or two and couldn’t do it.

“It was a great crowd, the students were electric. It was a really fun basketball game. We were right there. They did everything I asked all season.”

Spartans 67, Tigers 54
Marshfield 27 27 – 54
Oshkosh North 25 42 – 67
MARSHFIELD (54):
Ethan Posteluk 7, Brant Bohman 6, Reed Miller 20, Seth Anderson 8, Alec Hinson 7, Grant Michaelis 4, John Reigel 2. Record: 16-9.
OSHKOSH NORTH (67): Shane Wissink 7, Quincy Anderson 6, Tyrese Haliburton 24, Brett Ellestad 5, Matt Hickey 11, Philip Flory 12, Gout Deng 2. Record: 25-0.

Posteluk’s late game-winner lifts Marshfield past Neenah in WIAA Division 1 boys basketball regional final

NEENAH – Ethan Posteluk scored off a rebound with 3 seconds left to lift the Marshfield boys basketball team to a come-from-behind 70-69 win over Neenah in a WIAA Division 1 regional final Saturday night at Neenah High School.

After a timeout, Neenah turned the ball over out of bounds with 1.1 seconds to go. Marshfield threw the ball down court and Neenah intercepted, but the Rockets’ heave from three-quarters court missed left, giving the Tigers the win.

Marshfield (16-8), winners of eight straight, moves on to a sectional semifinal against the top-ranked team in Division 1, Oshkosh North (24-0), at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Appleton North. Marshfield lost to North 74-46 in its season-opener back on Nov. 25.

The winner moves on to a sectional final Saturday, March 11. If Marshfield wins, the game will be played at a site to be announced. If Oshkosh North wins, the game will be played at Marshfield at 4 p.m. Two-time defending Division 1 state champion Stevens Point (20-4) and Eau Claire North (20-4) play in the other sectional semifinal at 7 p.m. Thursday at Eau Claire Memorial.

“Win or lose, it was a great high school basketball game,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “It was a very well-played game and it’s one of those where it is unfortunate someone had to lose. I’m really happy for our guys, especially to come back from eight down and pull it out.”

Marshfield jumped out to an 8-0 lead and led for nearly the entire first half. Neenah crawled back to take a 31-30 lead before Adam Hauge made layup at the halftime buzzer to put the Tigers up 34-33 at the break.

Neenah (15-9) built a 59-52 lead midway through the half before the Tigers mounted a comeback.

Marshfield responded with a 7-0 run to tie it on two free throws by Reed Miller.

The game was tight the rest of the way. Seth Anderson made two free throws to tie the game at 68-68 with approximately 15 seconds to go. Neenah then made one of two free throws at the line before Posteluk’s game-winner.

Posteluk finished with 22 points, and Anderson and Alec Hinson each had 12 for Marshfield.

The Tigers made 23 of 27 free throws in the win.

“We came ready to play,” Scheuer said. “We shot the ball well initially. (At the end), there was no action on the play I set up. We worked through all the options and the thing I said during the timeout (before the final possession) was we had to make sure we rebounded, have five guys in the lane if we miss. Ethan was in the right place at the right time and put it in the basket.”

Tigers 70, Rockets 69

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield came into its WIAA Division 1 boys basketball regional semifinal against Hudson knowing the Raiders liked to play at a fast pace.

The Tigers, and coach Scott Scheuer, decided they would run with them and play the up-tempo game that they like to as well – and it worked.

Marshfield made 10 3-pointers and shot 57 percent overall to knock off Hudson 91-80 on Friday night at Marshfield High School.

The Tigers (15-8), winners of 13 of their last 15 games, move on to a regional final at Neenah (15-8) on Saturday. Game time is 7 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com. Neenah edged Appleton East 56-52 in overtime in a regional semifinal Friday.

Alec Hinson made 5 of 6 shots from 3-point range, including three in a row over the first 4 minutes of the second half, and finished with a game-high 22 points to pace Marshfield.

Four other Tigers also hit for double figures, with Ethan Posteluk scoring 16, Reed Miller making 7 of 8 free throws to score 15, Seth Anderson adding 12, and Grant Michaelis 11 in the win.

“We had 11 days to watch film on them and had to decide how to play them,” Scheuer said. “Do we want to run with them? Do we want to press them? I thought, if I don’t, it really doesn’t show my guys I believe in what we’re doing. We put the ball in the basket, and we do that, it makes the coach look really smart.

“They are coming in the 12-seed with all the pressure on the 5-seed (us), playing at home. Hudson never quit and kept battling, and I’m happy with the way our guys battled too and we’re happy to be moving on.”

Hudson (10-13) saw its final lead of the game come at 8-6 with 13:52 remaining in the first half.

Marshfield turned that around with a 15-2 run, sparked by a Miller 3-pointer. Five different players scored in the run to put the Tigers up 21-10.

Hudson whittled it down to two at 32-30 after a 3-pointer and a rebound and backet by Jacob Daulton, before the Tigers pushed their advantage back to 47-38 at halftime after a buzzer-beating jumper by freshman Isaac Meverden.

Hinson scored Marshfield’s first 13 points of the second half as it built a 60-42 lead.

Hudson had one more run in them, cutting to nine on two occasions and eventually to six at 84-78 after a 3-pointer from Keyser Helterbrand with 1 minute to go, but Marshfield was able to close out the win as Posteluk converted a three-point play and Miller hit a pair of free throws in the final 20 seconds.

“We were looking for contact that wasn’t called,” Scheuer said. “You have to adjust when they aren’t calling contact. Sometimes you are looking for fouls and not finishing it. You just have to finish and not assume you are going to get fouled. I’m just happy with the way they responded and finished it out.”
