Carthage Shootout

Carthage College

Kenosha, WI


The FLASH freshmen played their 1st-ever tournament together at the Carthage Shootout at Carthage College in Kenosha on 3/30 and opened their season against All-In and despite early struggles and nerves, FLASH took a 23-17 lead at halftime. Unfortunately, FLASH really struggled on both ends of the floor to open the 2nd half and gave up a 17-2 run to start the half to trail 34-25. Behind some good team work and the solid all-around play of Dylan Malkowski, FLASH worked their way back. With just over a minute to play, Johnny Hooper hit a big "3" that cut the deficit to 2 and a Braden Obst drive with 12 seconds to play tied the game at 47-47. However, a drive by the opponent with 2 seconds to play gave FLASH a 49-47 opening game loss. After a miserable stretch to open the 2nd half, FLASH showed character in coming back strong. Malkowski led a balanced scoring attack with 13 points while Ryan Bartz had 9 points and Obst had 8 to lead FLASH. Sam Sielaff led in assists with 3. FLASH had no rest between games as they played a very good WI Scholars team next. FLASH struggled dramatically against the trapping pressure of the opponent resulting in numerous turnovers and FLASH was outscored 21-2 to open the game. Things got worse before they got better as FLASH trailed 40-7 at halftime. FLASH came out in the 2nd half with a different mindset and competed with their talented opponent and had a 7-0 run of their own to open the 2nd half. FLASH settled down and played much better basketball and competed throughout the 2nd half--losing the 2nd half 27-26. Unfortunately, the 33 point 1st half deficit resulted in a 67-33 loss. FLASH had no one in double figures as Bartz led in scoring with 9 and Obst and Joaquin Paszkiewicz led in assists with 2 each. FLASH had one last game against East Troy Hoops Club to try and get a win for their opening tournament and played a solid 1st half but had difficulty finishing shots which had been a problem in all 3 games. FLASH trailed 20-17 at halftime and trailed by as many as 9 to start the 2nd half. However, behind a really solid effort on both ends of the floor from Malkowski, FLASH came back and took the lead with 3 minutes to play. With 1:20 left in the game, FLASH led 39-33 but ETHC scored 6 unanswered points to force the game into a two-minute OT at 39-39. After a defensive stop on the 1st ETHC possession in OT, Malkowski found Bartz for a 3 point play to take a 42-39 lead. ETHC responded with a basket to cut the FLASH lead to 1 before a drive by Obst gave FLASH a 44-41 lead with 20 seconds to play. A big defensive stop on the next possession and a foul by ETHC sent Hooper to the line with 8 seconds left and a chance to put the game away. He hit both clutch FT's and FLASH got their 1st win of the season 46-41. Malkowski finished with 15 points and Bartz had 9 for FLASH while Malkowski and Paszkiewicz each dished out 3 assists to lead FLASH. The win gives FLASH a positive to build on going forward.

NAYS-East Troy

East Troy HS

East Troy, WI


The FLASH freshman played in the NAYS-East Troy tournament on 4/27 and playing in a freshman-sophomore bracket in only their 2nd tournament together and without starting post Ryan Bartz, FLASH struggled. In Game 1, FLASH played a talented team, LakeShore Thunder of Sheboygan and against the bigger opponent, FLASH had their problems on both ends of the floor and trailed 30-16 at halftime. Things only got worse in the 2nd half as FLASH went on to a 55-28 loss with no one in double figures. Rogan Lee scored 9 points and Johnny Hooper had 7 points to lead FLASH while Braden Obst led in assists with 2. It was a pretty miserable performance and after an hour break, FLASH came back to play the host team, East Troy Hoops Club which had a combination of both freshmen and sophomores. FLASH did a much better job of competing in the 1st half and behind a balanced scoring attack and solid defense, FLASH trailed by a slim 30-28 deficit at halftime. On the 1st possession of the 2nd half, Johnny Hooper hit a nice pull-up jumpshot to tie the game at 30-30. Unfortunately, careless turnovers led to a 10-0 ETHC run and FLASH never recovered, lost their composure and went on to a 64-44 loss. Dylan Malkowski had 12 points and Obst had 8 while Hooper, Joaquin Paszkiewicz and Aaron Brunner each had 2 assists. In their final game, FLASH played the eventual Champions of the tournament, the Cavaliers of Milwaukee. FLASH played solid defense and slowed the game down against the athletic Cavaliers and with 3 minutes to play in the 1st half, the game was tied 12-12 in a low-scoring affair. FLASH again had a rough stretch and was outscored 11-0 over the next minute and half to trail 23-12 before scoring the final 4 points of the half for a 23-16 deficit at halftime. Trailing by only 7 points against a good team at halftime, FLASH came out and played poorly to open the 2nd half and dug themselves a whole they couldn't get out of and lost 52-37. Obst led FLASH in scoring with 11 points and Danny Hanlon had 9 points while Hooper led in assists with 3. Overall, despite playing against some older teams, FLASH had stretches where they played well but overall had significant stretches of poor, careless play which resulted in an 0-3 record in the tournament. There are significant areas to improve on for the next tournament.

Hoops For a Cause

SEA-Stoughton

Stoughton, WI


The FLASH freshmen played in the always competitive Hoops for a Cause Tournament in Stoughton on 5/5 and started the tournament against Complete Package of Wausau and behind a 5 point spurt from Johnny Hooper, FLASH jumped out to a quick lead. Unfortunately, FLASH blew several opportunities to open a significant lead and wound up trailing 17-16 at halftime. The game remained close throughout the 2nd half as poor shooting and mental mistakes prevented FLASH from opening up a lead and ultimately cost them the game, 33-30. Hooper was the only player in double figures with a season-high 13 points and while Braden Obst led in assists with 3. An hour later, FLASH played a very talented State Line Legacy team in Game 2 and the bigger, more talented opponent jumped all over FLASH early with an aggressive half court trap that forced numerous turnovers and easy transition baskets for the opponent as they opened the game with a 10-0 run. FLASH struggled to protect the ball and as a result, trailed 28-10 at halftime. The 2nd half wasn't much better as FLASH lost 46-22 with more turnovers than points scored. Obst led FLASH in scoring with only 6 points. After a humiliating loss in Game 2, FLASH played WI Academy in their final game of the tournament and showed character as they fought and battled while doing a much better job of talking care of the ball. FLASH led 23-22 at halftime and played a very solid 2nd half in a very competitive game. FLASH got significant contributions from multiple players as they had to fight down the stretch to hold on for a 45-42 win. Ryan Bartz led a balanced scoring attack with 11 points while Rogan Lee had 10 and Obst scored 8 respectively. Hooper, Bartz and Sam Sielaff each recorded 3 assists for FLASH. It was a great team win after some very recent frustrations and hopefully something that the FLASH freshmen can build on going forward.

NY2LA Sports Invitational

Homestead HS

Mequon, WI


The FLASH freshmen played in the very tough NY2LA Sports Invitational 5/17-18 and found out quickly what level of competition is involved in this tournament. In their 1st game, FLASH played Kentucky Hoops Dream of Lexington , Kentucky and really struggled offensively right from the start of the game. Facing intense pressure from the opponent, FLASH had critical problems with turnovers and didn't reach double figures in scoring until the final 2 minutes of the half as they trailed 35-15 at halftime. FLASH simply couldn't get anything going against the bigger, more athletic opponent and went on to score only 5 points in the 2nd half to lose 45-20 with only 2 team assists and no one in double figures as Braden Obst led the team with 8 points.Hoping to bounce back in Game 2, FLASH played one of the premier programs in WI club basketball in Phenom. FLASH did an outstanding job of handling Phenom's full court pressure to start the game and after the first 6 minutes of the game, Phenom got out of the press as FLASH did not turn the ball over once against the full court pressure. Unfortunately, FLASH couldn't capitalize on the offensive end as they struggled to shoot the ball in the 1st half and trailed 37-12 at halftime. FLASH picked up offensively in the 2nd half behind Obst (14 2nd half points) as they lost the 2nd half 24-20 for a much better showing in the 2nd half while losing 61-32. Obst was the only FLASH player in double figures with 16 points and Johnny Hooper led in assists with 3. In their final game of the tournament, FLASH played the Michigan Titans of Lansing, Michigan and after two rough games to open the tournament, FLASH played a solid 1st half against the Titans but still trailed 39-32 at halftime. FLASH hit 5 1st half "3's" to help keep themselves within striking distance but in the 2nd half, the "3's" were not falling and FLASH trailed by as many as 18 points with 6 minutes to play. FLASH didn't quit and cut the lead to 6 with 3 minutes to play but were unable to get any closer as they lost 63-55 in a very competitive game. Better ball movement resulted in a balanced scoring attack as Aaron Brunner had 12 points, Ryan Bartz, Joaquin Paszkiewicz and Dylan Malkowski each scored 8 points and Obst had 7 points. Hooper had a season-high 5 assists for FLASH. Despite a frustrating 0-3 record in the tournament, FLASH played 3 very good teams and got significantly better and more competitive with each game. Hopefully, they can build on this in the 2nd half of the season.

Laina Bailey Shootout

Justagame Fieldhouse

Wisconsin Dells, WI 


The FLASH freshmen played in the Laina Bailey Shootout on 6/1 and opened the tournament against the Oshkosh Wildcats and despite a slow offensive start by both teams, FLASH picked up their play on both ends of the floor and led 24-12 at halftime. FLASH continued to play well in the 2nd half and built their lead to 20 points midway through the 2nd half on way to an impressive 44-26 opening game win. FLASH had a very balanced scoring attack led by Braden Obst with 11 points and Dylan Malkowski with 9 points. Malkowski also led FLASH in assists with 4. After a big win in Game 1, FLASH came out in Game 2 against WI Playmakers and looked surprisingly flat and played a sloppy 1st half. They trailed 31-26 at the break. FLASH kept the game close throughout the 2nd half but an inability to finish around the basket and careless turnovers cost FLASH a chance to win as they lost 48-43. Rogan Lee led FLASH with 10 points and Johnny Hooper led in assists with 3. FLASH played their final game of the tournament against One Mission and FLASH got 10 quick points from Obst to start the game and put FLASH in a positive mindset early in the game. A solid overall performance in the 1st half gave FLASH a 24-18 lead at halftime. FLASH played well early in the 2nd half and increased their lead to double digits and still led by 10 with 7 minutes to play. Unfortunately, sloppy play and turnovers resulted in the 10 point lead being reduced to 3 in less than 1:30. With 5 minutes to play, FLASH continued to cling to a slight lead and remained in front to the very end. With 2.5 seconds to play, FLASH led 47-46 with the opponent inbounding from mid-court following a timeout. FLASH was instructed to play solid man defense but under no circumstances could they commit a foul since the opponent was in the bonus. Incredibly, FLASH committed a foul on an off-balance "3 point" attempt at the buzzer giving the opponent 3 FTs with no time left on the clock. They made the 1st FT to tie the game, missed the 2nd FT but still had one left since the foul occurred on a "3 point" shot and made the final FT to give FLASH a very frustrating 48-47 loss in a game that they should never have lost. Obst finished with a season-high 20 points and Ryan Bartz led in assists with 3. After a nice win in Game 1, FLASH simply "shot themselves in the foot" too many times in the last 2 games and despite being competitive, they didn't give themselves a chance to win.

Fireworks Shootout

Waukegan Fieldhouse

Waukegan, IL


The FLASH freshmen entered the Fireworks Shootout at the Waukegan Fieldhouse in Waukegan, IL on 6/29 with the realization that they would be rather short-handed in this tournament due to conflicts. FLASH had only 7 players (5 of which were guards). Prior to Game 1 against the Racine Royals, FLASH stressed taking care of the ball on offense and with the small line-up, blocking out on the defensive boards--unfortunately, they struggled in both areas and trailed 36-16 at halftime as turnovers on offense and an inability to block out on defense hurt their game. FLASH struggled to find any consistent offense and went on to a 61-37 loss. FLASH had two players in double figures (Braden Obst-14 and Ryan Bartz-11). Johnny Hooper and Sam Sielaff each had 2 assists to lead FLASH in what was a rather difficult opening game. In Game 2, FLASH played the Bulldogs and bounced back in a BIG way by getting off to a great start behind solid ball movement and the shooting of Braden Obst (16 1st half points) as FLASH led 32-13 at halftime. FLASH continued to play well in the 2nd half  as they went on to an impressive 60-30 win in what was certainly one of their best performances of the season. Obst led the way with a career-high 30 points as he went 8 of 9 from 2 point range, 4 of 6 from 3 point range and 2 of 3 from the FT line. Bartz and Hooper each had 8 points and Bartz led in assists with 3. An hour later, FLASH played their final game of the tournament against OWB of Chicago and despite being short-handed and playing their 3rd game in 4 hours, FLASH played well and competed from start to finish in what wound up being a very exciting game. FLASH started off well in the 1st half but went through a rough stretch which saw them fall behind by 11. However, behind the play of Bartz and Joaquin Paszkiewicz, FLASH cut the lead to 4 at 40-36 at halftime as Bartz scored 17 1st half points and Paszkiewicz had 11 to lead FLASH. In the 2nd half, FLASH took the lead briefly before an 11-0 run by OWB put FLASH down by 10 points with 10 minutes to play in the game. Following a timeout, FLASH again came back behind the interior scoring and rebounding of Bartz and the perimeter shooting of Obst to force the game into OT at 79-79. Down by 2, FLASH got a hustle basket on an offensive rebound by Bartz to force a 2nd OT at 81-81. The 2nd OT was only one minute in length and FLASH lost a hard-fought game 83-81. Bartz finished with a career-high 36 points (tied for 3rd in FLASH single game history) by shooting 16-21 from the floor and 4 for 4 from the FT line. Obst and Paszkiewicz each scored 15 points while Bartz and Paszkiewicz each dished out 4 assists. The final 2 games of this tournament were the best two consecutive games FLASH as played all season and certainly something to build on going forward.

Blizzard Battle

Kimberly High School

Kimberly, WI


The FLASH freshmen played in the Blizzard Battle on 7/14 and played without two key players--leading scorer Braden Obst due to injury and productive guard Joaquin Paszkiewicz due to conflict. FLASH opened the tournament with HLC and struggled dramatically on the offensive end of the floor but fortunately, HLC wasn't much better as FLASH trailed 11-9 at halftime in a very low scoring game. Things improved somewhat in the 2nd half but FLASH simply could not get it going and lost 34-24. Dylan Malkowski led the scoring with 10 points and Johnny Hooper dished out 2 assists. Certainly, hoping things would improve in Game 2, FLASH played WI Swing and the low scoring for both teams continued to start the game as no one scored in the 1st 4 minutes of the game. Swing scored the 1st basket of the game after 4 and a half minutes had gone by. Both teams struggled offensively but FLASH got a nice 6 point spurt from Rogan Lee late in the 1st half to give FLASH a 16-11 lead at the break. The game remained close throughout the 2nd half and was tied at 29-29 with 10 seconds to play and Swing playing for the last shot. However, a big defensive play by Lee with 4 seconds left turned the game as Lee Jumped a passing lane at midcourt and went the distance to lay in the game winning basket to give FLASH a 31-29 win. Lee finished with 12 points and Hooper dished out 3 assists to lead FLASH. In their final game of the tournament, FLASH played Menasha  and played a very close game from start to finish. Both teams got their opportunities and were able to finish shots but a tough contested "3 point" shot at the 1st half buzzer gave Menasha a 26-25 lead at the break. In the 2nd half, FLASH went to half court man defense and put Dylan Malkowski on Menasha's sharp shooter (5 1st half "3"s) and he did a great job of preventing his man from getting any more open looks and held him scoreless in the 2nd half. However, FLASH trailed by 6 with 2 minutes to play and called a timeout. Coming out of the timeout, FLASH went to full court trapping pressure which resulted in 3 consecutive turnovers for the opponent. Malkowski hit back-to-back "3's" to tie the game at 47-47 and then forced  the 3rd turnover and got fouled. He stepped to the FT line and hit 2 clutch FT's to give FLASH the lead with 35 seconds to play. After defensive stops on the next two possessions, Lee and Hooper hit clutch FT's to seal the victory, 52-47. It was a great win and gave FLASH back-to-back wins in dramatic fashion. FLASH had a very balanced scoring attack as Malkowski and Hooper each scored 10 points while Lee had 9 and Ryan Bartz scored 8 to lead FLASH. Hooper and Malkowski each dished out 2 assists.. It was a great team effort to end the tournament and something to continue to build on going into the final tournament of the season in the Dells.

Noah's Ark Shootout

Justagame Fieldhouse

Wisconsin Dells, WI


The FLASH freshmen played their final tournament of the season in the Noah's Ark Shootout at Justagame Fieldhouse in Wisconsin Dells on 7/27-28 and going into the tournament knew that they would be without 3 players and therefore limited to 7 players for the two day tournament. In Game 1, FLASH played Milton and struggled dramatically on the offensive end of the floor as they trailed 10-0 to start the game. FLASH got three "3's" from Braden Obst to finally get some offense but FLASH trailed 23-13 at halftime. The deficit reached 20 points in the 2nd half before FLASH came back strong to cut the deficit to 4 with a minute to play. Unfortunately, the hole was too big and FLASH lost 42-37. Obst finished with 13 points and Dylan Malkowski had 2 of the FLASH total of 5 team assists. In Game 2, FLASH played the Bulldogs and got off to a quick start and built a double digit lead early in the 1st half and led 36-15 at the break. FLASH continued to play well and built the lead to 22 in the 2nd half before winning 53-41. Obst again led the scoring with 17 points and Malkowski had 10 while Johnny Hooper and Ryan Bartz each dished out 3 assists for FLASH. FLASH took their 1-1 record into Sunday morning's final pool game against a talented Milwaukee Rebels team and got off to a rough start against a very athletic opponent. FLASH managed to stay within striking distance as they trailed 36-27 at halftime. Unfortunately, the 2nd half got away from FLASH as they couldn't stop the Rebels' transition game and lost 76-48. Bartz led the scoring for FLASH with 12 points while Sam Sielaff had 10 and Hooper led in assists with 3. An hour later, FLASH played WI Drive in their 1st bracket game. The winner would advance and the loser would go home. FLASH played a solid game from the start but still trailed 19-17 at halftime. However, the 2nd half belonged to FLASH as they built a double-digit lead and went on to a 51-41 win with 3 players in double figures (Obst-18, Hooper-12 and Bartz-11). Sielaff led in assists with 5. The win put FLASH in the Consolation Semifinal against City Hoops. FLASH jumped out to a quick lead and led by as many as 11 points before the opponent cut their lead to one at 22-21 at halftime. FLASH stepped up their defense in the 2nd half and with a one point lead at 31-30 early in the 2nd half, the City Hoops coach argued an official's call and received 2 technical fouls and an automatic ejection which gave FLASH a 5 point lead and the ball and changed the direction of the game. From that point on, solid defense and good ball movement led FLASH to a 53-42 win with 3 players again in double figures (Obst-14, Malkowski-14 and Bartz-12). Obst had a season-high 8 assists to lead FLASH. The win put FLASH in the Consolation Championship Game against a good Future Power team. FLASH was playing their 4th game of the day with 7 players and fatigue was starting to show as FLASH struggled and went 7 minutes without scoring a point in the 1st half which led to a 30-12 halftime deficit for FLASH. FLASH simply looked exhausted in the 2nd half as they went on to lose 67-36 to end their season. The FLASH freshmen showed improvement and although their final record won't necessarily show it, they did become a much more competitive team. We look for the improvement to continue in their 2nd season together as sophomores.
