The Brookfield Central girls basketball team continues to roll, outscoring two teams, 116-76, in the Baraboo Holiday Classic on Friday and Saturday.
The Lancers beat the host school, 57-45, Friday, to start the weekend, using a big third quarter to earn the win.
Central led 22-19 at intermission, but a 16-9 advantage after halftime gave the Lancers a 38-28 lead going into the fourth period.
"We had a 16-point lead, but they cut it to three with four minutes left," Central coach Dan Wandrey said. "But we went to our spread, and Emma (Brauer) and Caroline (Busch) went to the free-throw line and held them off.
Emma Brauer was 8-for-8 from the free-throw line and led the team with 14 points. Lydia Rohde had 11 and Nicole Hinz and Alena Moro had 10 points each. Busch had 8 points, including 5-of-6 from the free-throw line.
Emily Kieck and Claire Tomaw had 12 points each to lead Baraboo.
On Saturday, they rolled through the first three quarters, leading 47-19. They had quarters of 15-7, 15-7, 15-5.
Coach Dan Wandrey had 10 players get on the scoreboard, led by Brauer (16 points, all in the first half), Hinz (12) and Rohde (11).
Brauer had a good weekend, scoring 30 points in two games, including 14-for-15 from the free-throw line.
"She was awesome," Wandrey said. "She is our best defender, so she guards the other team's best kids. She does well at that.
"She has been frustrated because she felt she was not playing as well as she could have. But one of reasons is she has expectations. I told her to look at the big picture. We talk all the time."
Central improved to 8-1 with its current four-game winning streak. They next play on Jan. 10 at West Allis Hale at 7:30 p.m.
