In front of a packed gym at Amery in the Sectional Final, the Macks (28-1, 13-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) jumped out to an early lead, only to see the hot-shooting Eagles (26-2, 17-0 Indianhead Conference), storm back to a five-point advantage at halftime.
After the break, the wheels looked like they were coming off for McDonell, as they found themselves down 13 late in the game. The Macks seniors, however, were simply not willing to see their season end, as they fought their way back to force overtime. In the extra frame, McDonell hit big shot after big shot, made critical hustle plays on both ends, and held on in the final seconds to punch their ticket to the WIAA Division 5 State Tournament in Madison!
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior guard Aidan Misfeldt had the game of his life when it mattered most, scoring 16 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, and knocking down 6 threes for the game. Senior guard/forward Canan Huss tallied 11 and was a force on the glass in a game where every possession counted.
