His running mate, Winona State commit Kevion Taylor has chipped in with 16.0 ppg this season. Greendale is off to a 3-0 start, getting a surprise 24.3 ppg from Vlado Zrnic, who is currently more than tripling his scoring output last season. These two teams met last season, a narrow win for Whitnall.
West De Pere (3-0) at Cedarburg (3-0)
West De Pere is off to a strong 3-0 start, including two double digit victories. They’ll get a big test on Tuesday in Cedarburg, who’s put together one of the better resumes in the state thus far, with lopsided victories over Whitefish Bay and Milwaukee Hamilton. DePaul commit John Diener comes in averaging 22.3 ppg, but Cedarburg is also getting huge production from Jordan Johnson (23.3 ppg).
Waukesha North (1-1) at Brookfield Central (2-0)
These are two teams that have a chance to do some damage in March, both led by high-scoring sleepers. Brookfield Central already has a blowout win over Mukwonago on their resume, thanks to 19.0 ppg from Gage Malensek. 2018 forward Will McDonald is one of the state’s best kept secrets for Waukesha North, currently putting up 25.5 ppg.
Germantown (1-1) at Wisconsin Lutheran (1-0)
Trying to replace some key pieces from last season, Germantown is getting a huge season from Kyle Clow, who’s exploded for 29.0 ppg this season. Wisconsin Lutheran features a 1-2 punch of Brunard Williams (18.0 ppg) and Marcellus Duckworth (15.0 ppg).
Nicolet (2-2) at Milwaukee King (0-3)
Ignore the records, this game is a good chance to see some of the top up and coming talent in the state with two teams rebuilding for the future. Led by one of the state’s top freshman, Nicolet is getting 13.0 ppg from 2020 forward Jamari Sibley. A team with very few seniors, King will be a team that’s much better in the coming years as their up and coming talent gains experience.
