Second half dooms Brookfield East
High school basketball coaches aren’t renowned for their motivational speeches. Milwaukee Madison coach Gary Thomas’s halftime speech Tuesday, however, got the job done, as the Knights exploded offensively in the second half for a 40-26 win over Brookfield East in the WIAA Division 1 girls basketball regional. “We just made some adjustments and told the girls to just stay with what we do and everything will take care of itself,” Thomas said. After a stagnant first half by both teams that led to an 11-10 advantage for the Spartans, Madison scored the first nine points of the second half and finished the third quarter on a 13-5 run. Knights junior guard Tatiana Grant spearheaded the attack, scoring 17 of her 21 points after the break. “I …

Lancers win conference title for the fourth consecutive season.
For the past four years, Brookfield Central has set the standard for girls basketball in the Greater Metro Conference. And while Menomonee Falls has improved greatly since the beginning of the year, the Indians still have a ways to go.

Menomonee Falls dropped to 8-4 in the Greater Metro and 11-9 overall.

Brookfield Central visits Brookfield East on Friday in first leg of boys-girls doubleheader.
Brookfield Central girls basketball coach Dan Wandrey compared his team to a chameleon. “We figure out ways to do what we need to do at given times,” he said. The Lancers (12-4 overall, 9-0 in Greater Metro Conference) have done that quite well, having won seven consecutive games before dropping a 51-43 decision to once-beaten New Berlin Eisenhower on Tuesday. They’ll try to “change colors” again Friday at crosstown rival Brookfield East, beginning at 6 p.m. It hasn’t necessarily been a dominating run, with wins by five over West Allis Central, by three over Sussex Hamilton and by seven over Divine Savior Holy Angels. But, as Wandrey said, whether it’s 3-point shooting or defense or taking care of the ball, his team manages to do what’s …
