GNC field looks strong as Robin boys basketball loses fourth straight
space
The Antigo boys basketball team got off to a great start this season, winning its first seven games, but that was before it got into the heart of play in what appears to be a deep Great Northern Conference.

Four teams are currently within a game of the top spot, and five GNC teams hold overall winning records, while even perennial doormat Northland Pines is 4-6.

Monday night, the Lakeland Thunderbirds visited the Sheldon Fieldhouse and handed the Red Robins their fourth straight defeat, 65-55. The loss was also the third straight by double digits.

This was a different game than the past three games, Head Coach Jesse Shaw said. We were more competitive tonight, but we missed some shots, we turned them over a number of times and then missed the contest layup.

Antigo trailed by four at the break, 33-29, but Lakeland pulled away in the second half for the win. The Robins did manage to recover from double digit deficits in both halves, but could not get over the hump.

In fact, the score stood at 58-55 in favor of the T-Birds with just two and a half minutes remaining.

Free throw differential was a key, with Antigo attempting just five at the charity stripe, to 24 for Coach Rich Fortier’s Thunderbirds. Lakeland hit 17, including 12 after intermission to help ice the win.

That’s quite a disparity, they got to the line way more than us, Shaw noted. When that happens your shooting percentage better be pretty good, and we didn’t shoot the ball well tonight.

Sebastian Noskowiak was the exception to those shooting woes however. Noskowiak kept Antigo in the game with seven 3-pointers, finishing with a game high 21 points.

He really did a nice job bringing the ball up the court, Shaw added. Shooting from the outside and defending, he had an all-around nice game.

Noskowiak’s outside shooting was part of 11 three point makes on the night by the Robins, Nevin Cornelius, Milo Wittman, A.J. Kirsch, and Hunter Bolson all hit from beyond the arch as well. Lakeland knocked down eight 3-pointers.

The T-Birds featured a balanced scoring attack with four players in double figures. Santana Barnard led Lakeland with 19 points, 11 coming from the free throw line. Gunner Weitz had 15, Connor Evenhouse 13, and Jonathan Jurries added 11.

The Robins next high scorer after Noskowiak, was Kirsch with nine points.

Antigo is now 7-4 overall and 1-4 in the Great Northern Conference. Lakeland moved to 7-5 on the season and 4-2 in GNC play.

The Robins return to play tonight, when they travel to Schofield to take on D.C. Everest, from the Wisconsin Valley Conference. Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.
