Back in the WIAA Division 5 State Title Game, the Macks (29-2, 13-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) fell behind early to the Fighting Cardinals (27-4, 14-2 Marawood South Conference), came within three, but then fell victim to a hot-shooting streak from Wausau Newman, who took a 14-point lead into halftime.
Once again, the McDonell seniors made a furious rally, battling back within one possession on more than one occasion and coming as close as two points. Down the stretch, though, Wausau Newman made the plays they needed to and closed out the championship win in their first ever appearance at the state tournament, while the Macks capped off their magnificent 2022-23 campaign with a silver ball to bring back to Chippewa.
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
In his final game for the Macks, senior guard/forward Canan Huss gave everything he had, scoring 19 of his game-high 28 points in the second half and finishing with a double-double. Senior guard Eddie Mittermeyer notched 17, including extending his single-season school record for made threes to 126.
