A look at the top games around the state happening on Tuesday…


Wisconsin Lutheran (3-0) at West Allis Central (1-0)

The Vikings have looked legit early in the season. Wisconsin Lutheran has blown out Martin Luther and Whitnall. Sophomore guard Prentice YoungPrenticeYoung6'4" | PGWisconsin Lutheran | 2023State#118NationWI (15.7 ppg), senior forward Jonah RindfleischJonahRindfleisch6'6" | SFWisconsin Lutheran | 2021StateWI (14.0 ppg), and junior guard Jordan GlennJordanGlenn5'10" | PGWisconsin Lutheran | 2022StateWI (12.7 ppg) have formed a promising trio.

Junior forward Najashi TolefreeNajashiTolefree6'5" | SFWest Allis Central | 2022StateWI put up 25 points in the win, while junior guard Greyson PritzlGreysonPritzl6'3" | SGWest Allis Central | 2022StateWI  and senior guard Jaqunis RhodesJaqunisRhodes5'10" | PGWest Allis Central | 2021StateWI each had 17.


Menomonee Falls (1-1) at Wauwatosa East (1-0)

Another day, another huge game in the Greater Metro Conference.

Wauwatosa East put the state on notice with their season opening win over Sussex Hamilton. The Red Raiders got production from everywhere, including senior forward Alex SingletonAlexSingleton6'4" | PFWauwatosa East | 2021StateWI, who had 27 points in the win.

Junior guard Seth TrimbleSethTrimble6'3" | PGMenomonee Falls | 2022StateWI is having a huge season for Falls, averaging 33.0 ppg. Along with junior wing Steven ClayStevenClay6'5" | SFMenomonee Falls | 2022StateWI (17.5 ppg), the Phoenix have one of the best duos in the state.


Cedarburg (2-0) at Whitefish Bay (1-1)

You hate to label any game as a must-win this early in the season, but for Whitefish Bay, they can’t afford to fall two games back of Nicolet in the North Shore Conference race. The Blue Dukes bounced back after a season-opening loss  by surviving a scare against West Bend East. Northern Arizona commit Jayden JacksonJaydenJackson6'2" | SGWhitefish Bay | 2021StateWI leads the way at 17.0 ppg.

Cebarburg’s new duo of Purdue  football commit Drew BiberDrewBiber6'3" | SFCedarburg | 2021StateWI (27.5 ppg) and Kansas State commit Logan LandersLoganLanders6'9" | PFCedarburg | 2021StateWI (18.5 ppg) has been as good as advertised. The Bulldogs have cruised to wins over Homestead and Graftonn thus far.


Brookfield Central (3-0) at Brookfield East (1-0)

The battle for Brookfield and perhaps even the Greater Metro Conference gets its first installment of the rivalry on Tuesday. Central is considered a strong favorite in the league, but the Spartans generally play them very tough.

Texas commit David JoplinDavidJoplin6'6" | SFBrookfield Central | 2021State#54NationWI leads the Lancers at 29.0 ppg. St. Thomas commit Ben NauBenNau6'1" | PGBrookfield Central | 2021StateWI is also putting up big numbers with 23.7 ppg. Central will be coming off a nice win at Arrowhead.

The Spartans and their stud freshman Tayshawn BridgesTayshawnBridges6'2" | CGBrookfield East | 2024WI, who’s coming off 37 points against Tosa West, get their first big test of the season. Washington (St. Louis) commit Hayden DoyleHaydenDoyle5'11" | CGBrookfield East | 2021StateWI also had 20 points in the opener.
