Twenty-one seniors from Badger Conference boys basketball teams.

A combined total of 95 field goals, 37 of them from 3-point range.

And three fouls.

Following the typical script of an all-star game, Sunday’s boys version of the 12th annual Badger Conference Senior All-Star Games showed a preponderance of offense — and excitement — before the Badger South stars pulled out a 116-115 victory over the Badger North stars at Madison Edgewood.

Edgewood’s own Michael Meriggioli, a 6-foot, 5-inch forward, led the South stars with 23 points, sinking five 3-point baskets and two of his team’s four free throws.

The game was tight throughout, with the South taking a 52-51 halftime lead before both teams scored 64 points in the second half.

The South also got 19 points from Jared Brown, a 6-1 guard from Milton, 15 points from Kade King, a 6-6 forward from Monroe, and 14 apiece from Ethan Victorson, a 6-1 guard from Oregon, and Noah Jeseritz, a 6-6 forward from Watertown who made his team’s other two free throws.

The North was led by Mount Horeb’s Jason Larson, a 6-4 shooting guard who totaled 21 points. Also, Jack Henderson, a 6-7 forward from Sauk Prairie, scored 16 points, Eli Considine, a 6-4 forward from Portage, had 14, Josh Cash, a 6-5 wing from Waunakee, had 14, and Will Knatz, a 6-1 guard from Waunakee, also had 14.

The North also got 12 points apiece from DeForest’s Will Nortman, a 6-1 guard, and Mount Horeb’s Bryce Farnsworth, a 6-4 guard. DeForest’s Austin Westra, a 6-6 forward, had 11 points. The North didn’t attempt a single free throw.

Korklewski leads North girls

Reedsburg’s Julia Korklewski, a 5-8 shooting guard, scored 19 points and made four 3-point baskets to lead the Badger North girls to a 75-72 victory over the Badger South. The North took a 48-39 halftime lead but had to hold on late to stem a South charge led by Monroe’s 5-11 point guard, Sydney Hilliard, who led both teams with 26 points.

The North also got 16 points from Portage’s MacKenzie Roth, a 5-8 guard, and 10 points apiece from Beaver Dam’s Tara Stauffacher, a 5-11 forward, and Baraboo’s Alexis Johnson, a 5-9 guard.

The South also got 12 points from Fort Atkinson’s Kat Brandl, a 5-4 guard.

The game is a fundraiser for the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison. The event raised more than $20,000 last year.
