I probably asked them 10 or 15 times tonight, ‘What do you want?’ They would tell me what they want to run. I have the trust in them that, even though we might not score, I trust them and want to run what they want because they’re the ones out there doing it.” With about four minutes to play, Kettle Moraine led, 65-57, with Torres on the bench with four fouls. She checked back into the game and before she did, Hansen shot a non-verbal message at her by pointing at his cranium. The message was received, as Torres immediately hit a right wing triple to put the Lasers up 11 with 3:32 to play and then almost stole the ball away on the other end of the floor with a deflection out of bounds.

We know what he wants out of us and what’s going to happen for us in the game. It really helps us in the moment of the game.”
With WIAA regionals starting Tuesday, girls basketball teams around the Milwaukee area have wrapped up their regular seasons. Here’s a look at some of the action Friday.”There was many times in this game, I said to them, ‘What do you want on offense?’ They’re the ones playing,” coach Todd Hansen said of Grocholski, who can take over a game with her sharpshooting from deep, and Torres, who turns defense into offense.
For the second straight season, Hellendrung wasn’t among the team’s top-five scorers as the Wolverines got off to yet another slow start and fell to Union Grove in the D2 sectional semifinals. Boy, has that changed her senior year.
Junior Navaeh Thompson, who led the Wolverines in scoring last season, tore her ACL and transferred to Waukesha South. Lilly Hanke, who will play goalie collegiately at Drake University, also suffered an ACL injury and chose to focus on soccer her senior year.

So I think that everyone stepped up to their role, which really helped us.”
