BLANCHARDVILLE - New Glarus junior Autsin Schlueter had the hot hand knocking down two 3-pointers in overtime to lift New Glarus to a 58-53 win over Pecatonica in a non-conference game Monday.

Pecatonica (6-2, 3-0 Six Rivers East) had a 21-8 second quarter run to build a 13-point lead at the half. The Vikings couldn't hang on in the second half.

"It was the tale of two halves," Pecatonica assistant coach Larry Schliem said. "Everything we did in the first half worked. It was the opposite in the second half. We didn't take care of the basketball. We were a step slow in the second half."

New Glarus junior Gavin Binger scored a team-high 22 points and Schlueter added 18 points and made four 3-pointers. With the win, New Glarus improves to 2-6.

Pecatonica sophomore A.J. Hendrickson, who scored a game-high 25 points, scored on a layup with about 13 seconds to go in the fourth quarter to tie it at 47. Schlueter hit two 3-pointers and the Glarner Knights made 5 of 6 free throws in the extra session to seal the win.

Pecatonica sophomore Logan Green added 12 points.

Pecatonica played without junior point guard Brooks Chandler, who suffered a finger injury when he crushed his finger lifting weights.

Schliem said Chandler will return at some point after Christmas. Pecatonica will play at Darlington Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Brodhead 59, Richland Center 46

CUBA CITY - Brodhead senior Tjaden Sanders scored a game-high 21 points to propel the Cardinals to a 59-46 win over Richland Center in the first-round of the Cuba City Holiday Tournament.

BELOIT - One tough second quarter made the difference in Juda's 62-41 non-conference loss to Beloit Turner.

The Trojans went on a 25-3 run in the second quarter to take a 26-point lead on the Panthers at the half.
