Madison Memorial’s boys basketball team, the Big Eight Conference leader and No. 8 team in the WIAA Division 1 Associated Press rankings, has experienced some recent roster shifting.
Senior guard Bryce Danielson is out with a broken nose, while Courtland and Christian Cuevas are no longer with the team.
This has led the Spartans (15-3, 13-1) to move up three freshmen – Matt Caropreso, Billy Wilson and Jake Ferguson – from the JV team to the varsity squad.
Mark Miller of WisSports.net reported that Courtland Cuevas, a 6-foot-4 sophomore, has transferred to Madison East, although Madison Memorial athletic director Jeremy Schlitz said Wednesday that he has yet to receive a transfer eligibility form from the Purgolders.
Courtland Cuevas hasn’t received much playing time for the Spartans this season, but he has already received plenty of recruiting buzz for his play in the AAU circuit.
These roster moves shouldn’t affect Madison Memorial much this season, although all three freshmen additions to the roster received playing time in the Spartans’ 76-59 victory over Janesville Parker on Wednesday.
