Defense? What defense?

Waconia’s up-tempo style lead it to a 111-104 victory over St. Anthony in the Hamline Invitational in late November. The game set a girls’ basketball state record for combined points in a game (215). That record lasted barely a month and again the size-challenged Wildcats were involved. This time, however, they lost to Buffalo 112-104. In Waconia’s first nine games, either the Wildcats or their opponents scored 100 points or more seven times. Stay tuned. There’s still more than two months of basketball left to play this season.
