Multitalented Jorgensen helping Cardinals hold court

FOND DU LAC – There are plenty of new faces on the Fond du Lac boys basketball team this season, but at least one familiar Cardinal will be on the floor.

Drew Jorgensen is the top returning scorer for Fond du Lac from last year and scored a career-high 25 points in the Cardinals’ season opener Saturday in a win over Germantown.

“It felt really good to get a win, and we played really well as a team,” said Jorgensen, a three-sport athlete at Fond du Lac who also excels in football and tennis. “It was a good team win.”

Drew Jorgensen also surpassed Travis Diener’s career 3 pointer record. Drew Jorgensen has 184  3-pointers

Travis Diener’s career 3 pointer record was set during 1997 – 2001 seasons with 180 3-pointers

Do you have a nickname? I guess, Jorgy. I don’t really have a nickname but I get called that.

What is your most memorable sports moment? Making it to state in tennis last year (Jorgensen qualified as a singles player).

What is your most embarrassing sports memory? During football, I caught a post route and I hadn’t scored a touchdown yet and I was close to the end zone and I ran into (a teammate) and he kind of tackled me at about the 7-yard line. I got made fun of for that.

Do you have any pregame superstitions or rituals? I pray before every game but nothing other than that.

Why are sports important to you? I made a lot of friends through sports and it’s a great way to work with others on the team and have fun most importantly.

Who is your celebrity crush? Carrie Underwood.

What is your dream vacation? Going to the Super Bowl.

What is your dream career? I would like to be an elementary school teacher.

Oshkosh North 82 Fond du Lac 63

FOND DU LAC – Oshkosh North can put up points in bunches. Breakaway dunks. Open 3-pointers. Offensive putbacks. The Spartans can score in a myriad of ways from a plethora of players and in a blink of an eye can bolt to big lead. Yet there is often an underlying cause to every offensive eruption the Spartans put on an opponent. It’s their defense.Lac

Fond du Lac struggled with Oshkosh North’s pressure defense to open Friday night’s Fox Valley Association boys basketball game and the Spartans turned that defense into a 23-4 game-opening surge that carried them to a comfortable 83-62 win over the Cardinals.

The Spartans forced 12 first-half turnovers, the bulk of which were in the opening minutes of the game, and never trailed against the Cardinals.

Baskets by Quincy Anderson and Matt Hickey, followed by a 3-pointer from Wil Schmidt game the Spartans a 9-2 lead while North then answered a Fond du Lac basket with 14 straight points. “We got every 50-50 ball right away, we were rebounding well and we were really playing as a team in the first half,” Hickey said. “That helped get us the early jump we needed.”

Fond du Lac simply couldn’t find an answer to North’s defense in the first half as the Spartans continued to extend their lead to take a 48-23 advantage at halftime.

“I thought they did a nice job of trying to take us out of some of the things we’ve done against their 1-3-1 in the past. They weren’t going to let us get the ball in the middle,” Fond du Lac coach Mark Ziebell said. “That led to some turnovers which is like throwing gas on the fire and pretty soon you’re fighting an uphill battle.” The Cardinals, though did bring a weapon to that battle – the 3-point shot – and Fond du Lac unleashed a barrage of long-range shots as the second half began.

Fond du Lac hit nine 3-pointers in the second half, including four of them in a 12-1 run that narrowed the deficit to 12 with just more than six minutes to play. I was waiting for our guys to step up, show more leadership and get back together. I think that was a stretch where we went five different ways,” Weber said. “(Fond du Lac) can shoot the ball. You run into a team with that kind of explosion and they hit them in a row. I could have called time out but I wanted to see how our guys would respond and I as happy to see they responded without needing me.” After Fond du Lac misfired on a possession that could have narrowed the gap further, the Spartans rattled off nine straight points.

Haliburton scored six points in the run, while Hickey – who scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half – converted a three-point play. “We like to have a post presence because that means our guards get wide open looks at the 3,” said Hickey, who also added eight rebounds. “If we can put up some points, it helps take the load off of the guards because we are a guard heavy team with Tyrese and (Anderson).”

Caden Krug scored 19 points and Drew Jorgensen added 17 points to lead Fond du Lac, while the duo combined for 10 of the team’s 14 3-pointers. Quinten Winterfeldt also reached double figures with 15 points for the Cardinals. “We’ve grown as a team and we were able to stay together as a team in the second half,” Ziebell said. “I thought we did a good job of executing the adjustments we talked about in the second half but they really set the tone at the start.”

Balanced attack carries top-ranked Oshkosh North past Fond du Lac

OSHKOSH – It’s hard not to get enamored the talents of Tyrese Haliburton and Quincy Anderson when looking at the Oshkosh North boys basketball roster. They are two gifted players and among the best the state has to offer. But for any opponent thinking the Spartans rely solely on the exploits of that senior duo, they might be disappointed to find out those thoughts are a little off the mark.

Oshkosh North had five players finish in double figures and made 12 consecutive shots at one point in the first half as the top-ranked Spartans breezed past Fond du Lac, 93-63, in a Fox Valley Association boys basketball game on Friday night. “I think everyone keys on Ty and Quincy, but we are a pretty well rounded group,” North head coach Brad Weber said. “It’s a group that when we play together and we find the open man, we’re a pretty good group.” Anderson led the Spartans on Friday night with 22 points, while Haliburton posted 15 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in the win, but North got a big contribution from senior post player Gout Deng. Deng registered a season-high 18 points – 14 of which came in limited minutes in the second half – in helping the Spartans collect the win. “It felt good out there, just working with my teammates and moving the ball around,” Deng said. “We made some big plays out there swinging the ball and working as a team.” Deng’s output combined with 10 points from Dylan Krumrei provided North with a definite advantage in the paint which helped fuel the Spartans.

“I was disappointed in our post defense,” Fond du Lac head coach Mark Ziebell said. “I thought they were able to just pound it inside to their two bigs.” Drew Jorgensen knocked down six 3-pointers and led Fond du Lac with 22 points, while Quintin Winterfeldt added 19 points. The Cardinals held their own, at times, against the defending FVA champions but when North was able to speed them up offensively it caused Fond du Lac some struggles. “When we were patient and made that third, fourth, fifth pass, I thought we got some pretty good shots. That settled us down a bit,” Ziebell said. “When we had the one or two passes and shot quickly, it kind of put gas on the fire for them and allowed to get out in transition.”

Fond du Lac never led in the game but kept things close at the start until Oshkosh North rattled off a 9-0 run – with four different players scoring – to take a 26-13 lead just past the midway point of the first half. “I thought our energy was good in the first half. We were able to get up and down which is obviously with what we like to do,” said Weber, whose team also got 11 points off the bench from Abe Schiek. “Our activity on defense fuels us. So we start getting some deflections, start getting steals, start getting the game going the way we want it.” The Spartans also had a string of 11 straight points in the first half and another run of nine straight en route to taking a 56-32 halftime lead. North would build its lead to as many as 36 points in the second half as the Spartans never let the Cardinals make a run at them. “We just have to keep coming at them, keep coming at them,” Deng said. “Get an offensive rebound, that’s huge. You get a deflection, those lead to steals and those lead to dunks. That’s what gets us going and keeps us going.”

Fond du Lac is now 1-4 in the FVA but have tussled with the three top teams in the conference – Kimberly, Kaukauna and Oshkosh North – with all three games being played on the road. That tough stretch of the schedule may have forced the Cardinals into some tough situations early on, but Ziebell believes facing that top-tier talent will help Fond du Lac in the long run. “Without question (it will benefit us). I see improvement in what we are trying to do,” Ziebell said. “Going through the adversity taught us that we are improving on three things; we’ve become better teammates, I think our kids have become more coachable and I think we have become better competitors. Even though the score was what it was tonight, I thought our kids played hard and competed. “I think as we come out of this, come January, come February, I think we will be OK.”
