MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Columbus Catholic girls basketball team didn’t have its best game offensively, but it did more than enough on the defensive end to pull out a victory.

The Dons forced 25 turnovers, including 15 in the first half, and went on to defeat Spencer 51-40 in a Cloverbelt Conference East Division game Monday night at Columbus Catholic High School.

Marissa Immerfall did most of her damage inside, scoring a team-high 18 points and grabbing seven rebounds to lead Columbus Catholic (6-2, 3-1 Cloverbelt East).

“I thought we played extremely well in the first half, and in the second half we started experimenting with some different combinations on the floor and with our 2-3 zone offense,” Columbus coach Marty Draxler said.

Spencer (1-5, 1-4 Cloverbelt East) scored the first five points of the game before the Dons ripped off the next 15 to open up a double-digit lead.

Columbus held Spencer scoreless for nearly 7 minutes before Lexi Baehr, who finished with a game-high 25 points, hit a 3-pointer.

Columbus put together a 10-0 run, highlighted by four points from Maren Seefluth and a 3-pointer by Morgan Albrecht, to go ahead 29-13, and the Dons led by double digits the rest of the game.

Seven different Dons scored and 11 players saw minutes on the floor during the win.

“I like to trap and I like to press, and as our bench gets deeper, it’s going to help us long term,” Draxler said. “I looked at (Spencer) in the first half and they looked somewhat tired, and I looked at our girls on the bench having water knowing they are going to go in in 3 minutes.”

Turnovers plagued both teams during the first 10 minutes of the second half. A basket by Immerfall put the Dons up 46-28 before Spencer finally got its offense going a bit.

Aryiah Schuh made a basket and two free throws, and Baehr hit her fourth 3-pointer and three free throws after being fouled attempting another, to help Spencer close to within 10 with 1:58 to go, but the Rockets couldn’t make another basket.

“Taking care of the ball and boxing out on defense – our first 10 minutes were bad, they were getting a lot of second chances, we had six fouls, but once cleaned that up, things got much better,” Spencer coach Brian Abel said. “We’re definitely building in the right direction and we just have to keep it going and build some confidence up.”

Both teams return to Cloverbelt East action on Thursday as Columbus is at Gilman and Spencer plays at Loyal.

Dons 51, Rockets 40
Spencer 21 19 – 40
Columbus Catholic 37 14 – 51
SPENCER (40):

WIAA rescinds decision to implement shot clock in high school basketball

Posted on 04 December 2017 by paul

There will be no shot clock in Wisconsin high school basketball after all.

The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) Board of Control voted to reverse an earlier decision to implement a 35-second shot clock for both boys and girls basketball teams at its December meeting on Dec. 1.

“After considerable discussion and statements made by school administrators and coaches, the (WIAA) Board voted 7-3 to reverse its decision to introduce the shot clock in basketball beginning in the 2019-20 season. Following its initial 6-4 vote in June to implement the shot clock, the Board received significant and valuable feedback from the membership at the seven Area Meetings in September,” the WIAA issued in a statement following the meeting last Friday.

The original announcement over the summer to have a shot clock was met with varying opinions from coaches and fans throughout the state. That hasn’t changed, and the decision to keep the status quo is basically dependent on the type of basketball teams want to play.

“Personally, I didn’t want the shot clock,” veteran Spencer boys coach Randy Reckner said. “I guess I’m not surprised it was overturned. It all depends how long you’ve been coaching and what type of team you have. Speaking on behalf of my team, and the way I want to play, a shot clock wouldn’t do us any good. I’m actually happy it’s not coming in.”

Coaches that want to play a faster pace, like the Columbus Catholic boys coach Joe Konieczny, said he was in favor of the shot clock.

“I wanted the shot clock, obviously with our style of play we wanted to know that the other team is going to have to take a shot in 35 seconds,” Konieczny said. “I understand the expense part of it and all sides. I wasn’t surprised it was denied, but I was all for it.”

Marshfield girls coach Heidi Michaelis, who stands six wins away from 300 in her 17-year career as the Tigers’ head coach, thought the change would have been a positive for the high school game.

“I’m disappointed as I feel it would be good for the game overall,” Michaelis said. “It would make some games more exciting for sure. Honestly for us, it doesn’t change a lot just because we play a certain way and we will continue to do so.”

Also at the meeting, the Board of Control decided to send its Rural/Urban competitive equity plan for basketball, initiated by the Board in June, through the membership’s committee process beginning with advisory committee meetings in January.

The plan would affect mainly low-enrollment private schools that are located in large or suburban cities, bumping up some of those schools up a division in postseason play. Columbus Catholic would remain in Division 5.
