Earlier this week I listed my Top 6 Girls Basketball Rankings for my teams in New Berlin, Brookfield and Wauwatosa. Today I will list my boys teams.
- Brookfield Central
The Lancers are currently 11-1 overall and are tied for first with Menomonee Falls in the Greater Metro Conference, each with 5-1 records. The Lancers host Falls on Friday night, with the winner taking the conference lead.
Senior big man Chris Post has stepped up lately, using his 6-foot, 2 inch frame to score inside and grabbed some rebounds for coach Dan Wandrey’s crew.
- New Berlin Eisenhower
I feel like I’m on coach Dave Scheidegger staff since I have covered the Lions four of my last six free-lance outings for CNINOW. The Lions are still trying to find themselves, as they are 7-4 overall and 4-3 in the rugged Woodland West.
The talent is there – Sullivan Kulju and Matt Rolefson up front – and shooting guards Bryce Miller and Bryce Wesling – but the Lions are still learning to consistently play together.
- Wauwatosa West
When it comes to talented basketball players, coach Chad Stelse takes a backseat to no one. Led by Alou Dillon, a 6-8 forward, who is one of the best in the area, averaging around 18 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks a game.
LaRon Perine, Javaree Jackson and Se’veon James all average around 10 points a game. Perine leads them with 23 3-pointers and Jackson averages over 8 rebounds. Toss in sophomore Marquiss Childs, senior John Franks, Paris Howell and Tyrone Powell and Stelse is blessed with talent.
The Trojans are 8-4 overall and 4-2 in the Woodland West which is being dominated by Pewaukee.
- Brookfield East
First year coach Joe Rox – except for his outstanding senior guard Jake Graf – has a line-up sprinkled with juniors, sophomores and freshmen.
Joining Graf in the line-up is last year’s starting center Patrick Cartier, a 6-6 junior who needs to shoot the ball more when he’s inside.
Freshmen Sam McGath and Michael Poker and sophomores Riley Le Tourneau and Thomas Francken and junior Peyton Simon give Rox some young talent to work with.
The Spartans are 6-6 and 4-2 in the Greater Metro Conference, where they were win less last season. They have won 3 of 4 games, losing to Eisenhower their last time out.
East plays Tosa East on Friday and I ranked them ahead of the Red Raiders because they beat Brookfield Central and Marquette earlier this year while Tosa East lost to those teams.
- Wauwatosa East
Like previously mentioned, Coach Tim Arndorfer’s team is 6-6 and 4-2 in the GMC. The Red Raiders have won two of three and four of six games and there are not a lot of familiar names in the line-up.
No one is averaging in double figures, but 7 players are averaging between 5.1 and 9.8 points per game.
Seniors who contribute are Blake Kratzer, Dane Mikkelson, Mark Cole and Elijah Flenorl. Juniors are Jalen Holley, Deshun Hunter and Mahlik Lindsey.
- New Berlin West
Coach Brandon Mattox continues to build his program at New Berlin West, but losing sophomore point guard Joe Robey with a knee injury 3-6 weeks) will set him back a bit.
The Vikings are 4-6, but only 1-6 in the Woodland West.
West needs seniors Fred Cottrell, Zach White and Hunter Pipik to pick up the slack with Robey out. All three can score and Pipik is a key rebounder.
Freshman Desmond Polk, a 6-3 guard, leads to run the show at point guard. He had a huge game against Eisenhower and broke the Vikings back to make a game of it down the stretch.
Matt Obradovich, a 6-5 senior forward, and Tyler Torosian, a 6-4 junior forward, must also step up.
