Accentuate the Positive

I'm definitely going to discuss the Davidson Debacle (that has a nice ring to it, don't you think?) more later, but now I wanted to pass along some encouraging tidbits. That is, two of Wisconsin's recruits, Benilde-St. Margaret's senior Jordan Taylor and Henry Sibley junior Mike Bruesewitz, will be playing in the various Minnesota high school state championship games.

Bruesewitz's team has never even made it to the state tournament before, and just dispatched a team with one of the most talented juniors in the country on it. Apparently Bruesewitz and this other touted junior got into a bit at one point and the other guy got a technical. Bruesewitz had this to say after the game-- "I'm just a country kid from Litchfield, but I had to stand up for my team." Hilarious. Bruesewitz's team is the underdog in the 4A championship game--the largest division in the state. Taylor's team plays in the second largest division, 3A. He had 43 points in his team's quarterfinal victory, and 19 in 21 minutes in an easy semi-final win. Congratulations to both these guys and good luck in the championship games. As U-65 said earlier, the Badgers are a program. They'll reload and keep on trucking.

p.s. Go Kansas!
