Kimberly 41, Neenah 33

At Kimberly, the Papermakers made 11 free throws in the fourth quarter to salt away the win. Sara Rosenow was four-for-six at the line in the final quarter and Frankie Wurtz was seven-for-seven in the game from the line.

Wurtz finished with 14 points and Jenna Smarzinski had 10 for Kimberly, which led 20-9 in the second quarter before Neenah rallied.

“We didn’t have our best offensive night, but defensively we found a way to win,” Kimberly coach Troy Cullen said. “When you’re successful when you don’t play your best, that’s a sign that you’re getting better.”

Alyssa Barnes led Neenah with 12 points.

Appleton North 49, Appleton West 37

At North, the Lightning led by as many as 17 points in the second half on the way to the win.

“With North, it starts for them with defense,” said West coach Richard Ruhsam. “They play very good defense. We turned it over too much. We didn’t shoot real well in the first half. We made a little run, got within eight in the fourth quarter and then they pulled away.”

Mackenzie Greisch led North with 12 points. Kimmi Meulemans scored a game-high 14 for the Terrors.

At Appleton, Sara Hagmann and Mayra Villagomez scored nine points each, but the Patriots couldn’t find the basket in the fourth quarter. East trailed just 39-35 after three, but couldn’t score the rest of the way.

“Quite honestly, we were tired,” East coach Joe La Chapell said. “We lost Megan Larsen to an injury and she logged big minutes for us. We need to find someone to fill the rotation. We’ll work on that in practice.

“We got shots; just didn’t make them.They did everything we asked of them. They just didn’t put it in the bucket.”

Kiaya Adams led the Spartans with 13 points.
