2009 WI State Boys Basketball

I had the pleasure of watching the Horlick Rebels of Racine take on Eau Claire North Thursday night and play in the championship game against Madison Memorial on Saturday. Horlick's dreams were not meant to be, as Memorial's studs Vander Blue (who has verbally committed to Wisconsin, thank god) and Jeronne Maymon (Marquette bound) proved to be too strong in the game. Wisconsin State Journal article that sums it up pretty well here.

A few quick snapshots of the event, with a little Horlick bias...(click for hi-res)

Amazing NBA-style introductions. I would be so jacked up out there...

Maymon, the new traitor I can love to hate (Wes Matthews being the first). Yeah, go to a school next to the ghetto over an awesome school like Madison, smart.
