Wittenberg-Birnamwood 80

Menominee Indian 71

Wittenberg-Birnamwood defeated Menominee Indian in a Central Wisconsin Conference-East battle at Wittenberg-Birnamwood High School on Tuesday.

“It was a battle tonight for 36 minutes,” Witt-Birn head coach Lon Ebel said. “A physical and intense game down the stretch.

I give them a lot of credit as they had no quit in them and tested our will.”

Menominee Indian had an edge in shooting, with a 54 percent field goal and 70 percent 3-point completion rate to Witt-Birn’s 53 percent and 37 percent, respectively. Witt-Birn, however, completed 76 percent of its free throws to Menominee Indian’s 45 percent.
