Such was the case Tuesday as the New Glarus girls basketball team used a smothering press to vanquish Dodgeland 74-18 in the opening round of the WIAA Division 4 basketball playoffs. "One of the points of emphasis in the pregame was to come out on defense, create some turnovers and then finish on the other end," New Glarus head coach Kim Burton said.
