MONROE - Monroe senior Chelsea Brice understands that defense wins championships after the Cheesemakers survived a test and beat Platteville 57-41 in a WIAA Division 2 Verona regional semifinal Thursday night.The Cheesemakers clamped down on the Hillmen by holding them scoreless for 9 minutes, 30 seconds to fuel a 17-0 run that spanned from the end of the second quarter until late third quarter. "This is just a relief to get this first tournament game over," Brice said, who scored 17 points. "We thought we had to pick up the intensity on defense and keep them from getting open looks."
