Possible Newman-Prentice Final is Hard to Ignore

WAUSAU (WAOW) - A pair of area girls basketball teams tip off in the state semifinals on Thursday.  Prentice takes the court against River Ridge at 1:35pm.  Newman rematches last spring's state championship win over Black Hawk following that game.  All state tournament games can be seen on Newsline 9 and will also be streamed live at waow.com.

With north and central Wisconsin's two best Division 5 teams still playing in opposite sides of the bracket, it's hard to keep from thinking about a match-up in the state finals.  After all, the two teams split a pair of games this season, with each squad handing the other it's only loss of the year.  Fans aren't the only ones hoping for a rubber match.  Several Newman players expressed a desire to get another shot at Prentice, who won the most recent match-up in the Marawood crossover game.
