Back at the sectional level after a one-season hiatus, the Macks (27-1, 13-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) went back and forth early with the Cardinals (11-16, 4-10 WCC), and held just a slim four-point advantage at halftime.
After the break, however, McDonell's defense went to another level, as they outscored Thorp 26-9 in the final 18 minutes. The Macks' core group of seniors led the way and were rewarded with the program's eighth trip to a Sectional Final in the last nine years.
WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior guard Eddie Mittermeyer provided timely shooting and scored a game-high 21 points, while senior guard/forward Canan Huss added 13 in a strong effort. Senior guard Aidan Misfeldt rose to the occasion on both ends of the floor once again, scoring four in each half.
