Boys basketball: La Follette handles Craig
The Janesville Craig Cougars returned to Big Eight play Saturday at Madison LaFollette with a 72-41 loss that they would rather forget.
The Lancers used their physicality, quickness and a bout of foul trouble for Jerry Ngobi to build a 43-21 halftime lead. Ngobi, who leads the Cougars in scoring for the season, finished with just seven points after picking up two fouls in the first quarter and a third early in the second.
Nolan Maresch led Craig with 13 points. The Cougars next host Madison Memorial on Jan. 9.
