Tucker Paschen scored 25 points to lead Kimberly to a 64-54 victory over De Pere in a WIAA Division 1 regional final boys’ basketball game Saturday in De Pere.

Paschen scored 21 points in the second half for the Papermakers. Ben Boots finished with 19 points.

Boots opened the game on a hot streak as Kimberly built a 22-9 lead after one quarter.

“We rode him,” Kimberly coach Lucky Wurtz said of Boots. “We got him the ball and Benny took off from there. We built enough of a cushion to keep riding her out. We did a decent job on (Brevin) Pritzl. Made him take some tougher shots and that was key to the win. Tucker Paschen took over after Ben’s onslaught. I’m proud of the kids.”

Pritzl led De Pere with 22 points.

“We missed a lot of free throws at the end,” Wurtz said. “We beat De Pere twice on their home floor this year. That’s a nice deal for our program.”
