Playoff Basketball: 2/23/18 Chi Hi 56-Appleton West 53

In the regional semifinal on Friday night in Chippewa Falls, the Cardinals welcomed the Terrors of Appleton west in an 8/9 matchup. The Terrors showed the meant business, opening up an 8 point lead at the half on the road with 8 different players scoring in the first half.

In the second half, Appleton West's lead grew further, all the way to a 16 point advantage with under 9 minutes to play. From there, a heroic effort from the Cardinals to close the second half resulted in an incredible comeback in front of a frenzied home crowd to secure a spectacular 3 point victory to advance to the regional final.
