Girls Basketball: Badger North-Baraboo at De Forest, Baraboo will face the Norskies for the first time tonight with Baraboo 6-0 in the conference and 13-0 overall after a 63-45 win over Portage Tuesday in a game where four Baraboo players scored in double figures. Baraboo did not shoot well from the floor but they converted at the foul line and forced Portage into some mistakes, especially in the second half. Carli Zimmerman is still out of the Baraboo lineup with a concussion so Baraboo will be somewhat shorthanded against a De Forest squad that is 4-2 in the league, 8-6 overall and winners of four of their last five. Kayla Goth is a returning all-leaguer for De Forest but it’s a balanced team that does not feature a double figure scorer while holding opponents to very few points themselves. 7:30 PM is the tip-off time in De Forest with live coverage at about 7:20 PM on 99.7 FM and AM 740-WRPQ with Scott Pionke and Kristi Feld on the call!
