Blue Dukes' Season Ends With Loss to Eisenhower
Whitefish Bay girls will not return to the state basketball tournament this year after a loss in Saturday's sectional championship game.
After taking an early lead in Saturday's sectional championship game, the Whitefish Bay girls basketball team fell to New Berlin Eisenhower to end the girls' season.
The Blue Dukes, which finished the season 21-5, lost 48-23 to an undefeated New Berlin Eisenhower team, which will now go on to compete in the Division 2 state tournament.
The Blue Dukes started out strong with a 10-0 lead, and then a 15-7 lead toward the end of the first quarter, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Lions then fought back with a 22-point run that Whitefish Bay could not recover from. The Lions' strong defense held the Blue Dukes offense down with 22 turnovers overall and 22 percent shooting.
The Blue Dukes earned a trip to the sectional finals after beating Wauwatosa West Thursday night in the sectional semi-finals.
