More Looks At WVU Hoops Signee Jordan McCabe
Two future Big 12 players met for the last time on the high school hardwood Friday night, as West Virginia-bound Jordan McCabe and his Kaukauna (Wisc.) Galloping Ghosts faced off against Tyrese Haliburton, who is headed to Iowa State, and his Oshkosh North (Wisc.) Spartans.
Kaukauna, which is ranked No. 1 in the state of Wisconsin in Division 2, had handed Oshkosh North, which is No. 1 in the state in Division 1, its only loss of the season back on Jan. 9. McCabe had 41 points in that KHS victory.
But on Friday, Haliburton and the Spartans got their revenge. Though McCabe scored 33 points, Haliburton topped that with 42, leading North (20-1) to the 88-67 victory in the showdown for the Fox Valley Association title.
McCabe, who is averaging 26.5 points a game on the season, had six three-pointers in Friday’s contest, but the 6-foot-6 Haliburton had four of his own from beyond the arc, along with an assortment of drives and dunkes, to help snap Kaukauna’s 13-game win streak.
The Ghosts are now 18-3 on the season. They host Hortonville on Thursday in their regular season finale and then head into state tournament action. As the No. 1 seed in Division 2, Kaukauna will get a bye in the tourney’s first round and then will host the winner of Green Bay West and Menasha on Friday, March 2. The Wisconsin state high school tournament concludes at the Kohl Center in Madison the weekend of March 16-17.
