Monroe can't cut down DeForest

MONROE - In senior Jonah Tostrud's mind, the Monroe boys basketball team showed its resiliency and what they can do when their backs are against the wall in the final minute of the home opener against DeForest Tuesday. Tostrud scored a game-high 21 points and the Cheesemakers nearly pulled off an improbable comeback after trailing by 13 points in the second half and by nine points in the final 1 minute, 6 seconds before falling short to DeForest 67-63. "We showed when we play together and play team basketball we can battle back from deficits," Tostrud said.
