Shawano fell to a hot shooting Green Bay East team 73-60. The Red Devils were led by Rafe Walen’s career high 30 points. The Hawks fell behind early and never recovered. East led by twelve at the half and shot 57-percent from the floor for the game, including 10 three pointers.
“I thought defensively we had a couple breakdowns,” Shawano head coach David Ambrosius said. “We let them get hot and when you get basketball players of their caliber, when they get in a rhythm, it’s a tough night.”
Atty Wagner and Alex Mueller each had 13 points for Shawano (6-8). Carter Weisnicht scored 10 in his season debut. It won’t get any easier for the Hawks as No. 1(Division 3) Xavier comes to town on Tuesday.
