Woodbury vs Sibley Observations (4AAAA Semi #1)

Woodbury played Stillwater tough twice and then beat them in the tourney and gave CDH 2 tough games. Could they do the same with Sibley? Full house tonight at Concordia-SP for my 1st trip ever the Gangelhoff Center. I just wish the PA system was better as its useless to those of us on the top row.

The first half is gun slinging so its only appopriate we have Aaron "Machine Gun" Myers. Sibley gets out to a 24-17 lead at 8:35 of the 1st half thanks to hot shooting from Maurice Hernandez. UW recruit Mike Bruesewitz with a nice half as he gets 3 buckets in the last 6 and half minutes. 39-36 Sibley at the break. Bruesewitz with 10 1st half points. Hernandez with 11 on 3 3s. Myers with 4 3s keeping Woodbury close via 14 points. Soph Nick Quicksell with 10 points.

Sibley tries to get out on a quick start but Woodbury keeps it at 47-42 with 13 minutes left. Sibley goes on a 13-2 run with Peter Leslie knocking down a 3 after Woodbury left him in transition and Bruesewitz with a couple of buckets. 60-44 Sibley with 9 minutes left. Woodbury shows zone and Sibley has Bruesewitz out high moving the ball which is a nice demonstration of his versatility. Myers gets a bucket with 5:25 to go to pull the Royals within 8. But with it still an 8 point game at 3:39, 65-57, Sibley runs off the last 11 points breaking pressure to win 76-57.

Bruesewitz with 18 and Peter Leslie with 18 for Sibley. Hernandez with 15 and Chris Halvorsen with 10. They have all the parts with good point guard play from Leslie, solid role players in Hernandez and Noah Kaiser and good size and options up front with Bruesewitz and Chris Halvorsen.


  1. Great site. I'm hoping you'll have more updates on the Badger recruits from the upcoming BSM and Sibley games.

  2. Thanks Phil, glad you enjoy it. Since I'll be at the 4A/4AA finals, I won't have anything in person from Taylor or Bruesewitz. But Bruesewitz will definitely be on the watch list for next season.
