Aquinas 51, Roncalli 41


The Marquette-bound senior guard scored 28 points today to lead La Crosse Aquinas to a 51-41 victory over Manitowoc Roncalli.

It was a match of the state's last two unbeatens in the Division Three semifinals of the W-I-A-A State Boys Basketball Tournament.

Luke Umberger added eleven points for the top-ranked Aquinas, who won the Division Two state title in 2003. Before joining the W-I-A-A, they won nine W-I-S-A-A state championships and were runners up eleven times.

Greg Schrimpf scored 13 points and Cody Lassila had eleven for the second-ranked Jets (25-1), who hadn't lost since falling to Racine St. Catherine's in last year's state semifinals.
