Five games to watch during Tuesday’s WIAA basketball action…
Racine Case (0-0) at The Prairie School (1-0)
A couple of young, up and coming guard will square off in this non-conference showdown. Coming off a huge freshman season in which he averaged nearly 20 points per game, 2021 guard JaKobe Thompson leads Case in what should be a bounce back season for them. The Prairie School lost quite a bit of talent, but reloads with some of the top 2021 prospects in the state as well, including Isaiah Hoyt and Antuan Nesbitt.
Menomonee Falls (0-0) at Milwaukee Lutheran (0-0)
Two of the top freshman in the state will be in action on Tuesday. Menomonee Falls gets the Seth Trimble/Steven Clay era underway at Milwaukee Lutheran. The Red Knights are expected to be very competitive this season behind junior guard JaVeon Tolliver.
Nicolet (0-0) at Hartford (0-0)
Yes, this game could get out hand, but if you’re in the area, how can you miss a chance to see one of the greatest collections of talent in Wisconsin high school basketball history? Jalen Johnson, James Graham, Kobe Johnson, Jamari Sibley, and Allen Johnson should put on a show well worth the price of admission. Hartford, led by sophomore Jadon Melvin, will try and spoil the fun.
Monona Grove (1-0) at DeForest (0-0)
This could be a battle between the Badger South and the Badger North champion when all is said and done. Certainly two teams expected to finish in the top two of their respective conferences. Two of the better players in the Madison area will square off in Caden Nelson for Monona Grove and Austin Westra for DeForest.
Oshkosh West (1-0) at Neenah (1-0)
Year in and year out, you can’t take a night off in the Fox Valley Association. On Tuesday, two of the more competitive teams in the conference will meet in league play. Oshkosh West is led by their 1-2 punch of Luke Haasl and Karter Thomas, two potential first-team All-Conference picks. Neenah has a dangerous duo of their own in Grant Flory and Max Klesmit.
Others: Eau Claire Memorial at Superior, Menasha at Luxemberg-Casco, Muskego at New Berlin Eisenhower, Wisconsin Dells at Black River Falls, Appleton West at Kimberly, Dodgeville at Mineral Point, Pecatonica at Cuba City, McFarland at Lodi, Unity at Clear Lake, Seymour at Green Bay Southwest, Rib Lake at Abbotsford
