2/4/23 Basketball: Neillsville 61, McDonell Lady Macks 48

In a battle of state-ranked squads from Divisions 4 and 5, the Lady Macks (16-4, 12-0 Western Cloverbelt Conference) found themselves down double-digits early to the hot-shooting Warriors (20-0, 13-0 Eastern Cloverbelt Conference), but clawed their way back to a tie at 20 apiece.

After a timeout, however, the Warriors continued their three-point barrage, extending their advantage to 11 by the half, and never allowing McDonell to get closer than 7 points the rest of the way. In the end, the Lady Macks fell for the first time in 11 games, as Neillsville rained in an incredible 14 threes.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Junior center Aubrey Dorn played hard in the paint throughout and did a lot of damage from the free throw line, scoring 12 of her team-high 16 points in the second half. Junior guard Emily Cooper hit two threes and scored all 12 of her points in the first, while senior guard/forward Marley Hughes battled through illness to tally seven points, all of them coming after halftime.
