Division 1 preview capsule: Milwaukee Riverside

Mar. 12, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Nickname: Tigers.

Coach: Donald Nelson (43-27, third season).

Enrollment: 1,591.

Miles from Resch Center: 116.

Season record: 22-4 (12-0, Milwaukee City-Gold, first place).

State appearances: Four.

Last time at state: 2005 (lost to Waukesha South in semifinal, 64-51).

Notes: The Tigers have been in the semifinal round twice. ... The team started the season 1-4, including losses to De Pere and Bay Port. They have won 21 straight. ... Nelson said the defense was nowhere near where it should have been at the start of the season when his players battled injuries and inexperience. ... The Tigers averaged 75.1 points per game, which is the most of any of the four teams at D1 state. ... Senior center-forward Breanna Lewis is averaging 15.5 points and 13.3 rebounds. She will play at Kansas State next season. ... Sophomore guard-forward Amani Wilborn leads the team with 15.7 points and is shooting 51.0 percent from the floor. She struggled with her shot earlier in her career, but has improved greatly. ... The Tigers scored 81 or more points in 11 games. They scored a season-high 97 in a win over Milwaukee Madison.

Coach’s take: “We knew we were bringing back some very talented players. I knew we were going to have a great chance to make it to the tournament, and here we are, two games away from our ultimate goal.”
