Roncalli set for rematch with Wrightstown


When the Roncalli and Wrightstown boys basketball teams faced each other in Manitowoc for the first time this season in early December, the pair was undefeated and tied for the top spot in the Olympian Conference.

Now, more than a month later, the two enter Friday’s rematch at Wrightstown needing a win to maintain hope of having a shot at the No. 1 spot in the OC come season’s end. The Tigers won the first meeting 48-47, but both squads have suffered multiple losses recently, making the rematch perhaps even more critical of a game.

Brillion (13-2, 10-1 OC) presently holds the top spot while Wrightstown (13-2, 10-2 OC) and Roncalli (11-3, 8-3 OC) are left to crawl back into contention, with a win tonight being a big step for either squad in that direction.

Wrightstown has suffered one home loss this season. Roncalli has lost just one road game this season. Roncalli is 2-2 in their past four games. Wrightstown is 4-0 and in the final game of an eight game-home stand. One of the two will have to break, and the one that doesn’t will be one step closer to catching Brillion.
