Notes: The Trojans return to state along with five returning starters. … Ten of the 15 players on the roster are seniors. … East Troy is an up-tempo team that is averaging 66.2 points per game and has scored at least 50 points in each game. … The starters include Breanna Gaspervich (16.7 points per game), Rachel Atchison (16.6 ppg), Alicia Oleson (10.6 ppg), Andrea Olsen (9.7 ppg) and Frankie Morris (2.1 ppg). … Gaspervich, the Rock Valley North player of the year, will play at Northern Michigan University (DII). … The squad shoots 36.0 percent from 3-point range (167-for-465), where Atchison is shooting 39.0 percent (82-for-211). … Atchison and Oleson are also first team all-conference players. … The Trojans made it back to state by avenging their semifinal loss with a victory over Oostburg in a sectional final. … The East Troy boys basketball lost in the D3 state semifinals last week.

Coach’s take: “We’re going to try and get the game going a little bit faster than (Neillsville) would like it and hopefully we’ll be there in the end. Their defense is absolutely phenomenal. Some of my kids’ belief in defense is to score one more point than what you’ve given up.”
