Newman Catholic Assumption Girls Basketball Preview

The Assumption and Newman Catholic girls basketball teams will face each other for the third time this season.  
But the stakes were never this high. The two squads will take the floor in this Thursday's sectional round game in Antigo.  
The two-time defending state champ Cardinals are looking to end Assumption's season for the fourth time in six years.  

It's said that it's hard to beat a team three times in year, but the Cardinals don't put much stock in that theory.  

Assumption's only two losses this season have come at the hands of Newman. And they were close games.  The Royals lost by three points on the road in January and fell in double overtime at home by a mere four points.  

With a chance to go to state, Assumption wouldn't want anybody else standing in its way.
