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

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield girls basketball team overcame a 14-point deficit in the second half to take a late lead, but Stevens Point scored on its final six possessions and pulled out a 71-65 victory in a Wisconsin Valley Conference girls basketball game Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.

Stevens Point (15-2, 7-1 WVC), ranked 10th in this week’s Division 1 state coaches poll, led 30-20 at halftime and pushed its advantage to 41-27 with 13:09 to go before Marshfield (6-9, 2-5 WVC) got its offense rolling.

The Tigers made eight of their next nine shot attempts, which included three baskets by Jenna Jakobi and two 3-pointers from Meg Bryan, to close to within 51-47.

Marshfield took its first lead since early in the game at 56-54 on a basket by Bryan with 4:34 remaining.

There were two ties and the lead changed hands three times in the final 4 minutes.

Another Bryan 3-pointer put Marshfield on top 61-60 with 2:10 left before a basket by Leah Earnest gave Stevens Point the lead for good.

Following a Marshfield turnover, Maggie Negaard converted a three-point play and the Panthers went 6-for-6 at the free throw line in the final minute to hold on for the win.

“We’re playing with six people and they battled,” said Marshfield coach Heidi Michaelis, who’s next win will be her 300th in her 17-year career at the helm of the girls program. “They did a lot of really, really good things. That’s a good team, and I give Point credit for never getting rattled, but our kids battled tonight.

“It comes down to a few possessions where we didn’t make a shot and throwing the ball away.”

Bryan finished with 22 points, making six 3-pointers, and Jakobi had 20 points, including 15 in the second half, for the Tigers.

Earnest finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Stevens Point, which made 16 of 20 free throws overall. Marshfield was just 13 of 21.

Despite the loss, Marshfield’s third in its last four games, Michaelis is remaining positive, as she said she is seeing improvement from her team during the second half of the season.

“We’re playing good teams and the only thing that matters is if we are the best team we can be at the end of the season,” Michaelis said. “I feel that we’re working toward that. We’ve had bad luck and a bad streak of some kids being out, but the other kids are picking it up and tonight they put their heads down and battled.

“I told them that the worst thing that could happen in a game like tonight is to say you quit, and they didn’t do that. That’s all I care about.”

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

Panthers 71, Tigers 65
Stevens Point 30 41 – 71
Marshfield 20 45 – 65
Jenna Bohanski 3-4 0-0 7, Kaylin Kostuchowski 0-0 0-0 0, Halle Gregorich 2-5 0-0 4, Rachel Sullivan 5-8 1-3 11, Halle Pavelski 0-0 2-2 2, Maggie Negaard 4-14 5-5 14, Maddie Fink 3-5 0-0 6, Madisyn Rogan 2-6 5-6 10, Leah Earnest 7-13 3-4 17. FG: 26-55. FT: 16-20. 3-pointers: 3-10 (Bohanski 1-1, Rogan 1-3, Negaard 1-4, Fink 0-2). Rebounds: 33 (Earnest 10). Turnovers: 18. Fouls: 20. Fouled out: Gregorich.

SPARTA – The Marshfield wrestling team had three individual champions and placed third in the team standings at the Sparta Invitational on Saturday at Sparta High School.

Gabe Pugh (113 pounds), Caden Dennee (120) and Sam Mitchell (195) won individual titles for the Tigers, who finished with 159 points.

“Sparta is a great opportunity for the Marshfield wrestling team to run into some quality wrestlers throughout the state,” Marshfield coach Jackson Hein said. “Placing top-three at this tournament as a team is a good day, as we were missing some of our starters. It was great to see Pugh, Dennee and Mitchell all reach the top of the podium.”
