Wesley Matthews, State Champion

March Madness has many contributors, and while the Warriors are sitting out this year's NCAA tournament, future Warrior Wesley Matthews took care of business in the WIAA.

Over the weekend, Matthews led Madison Memorial to its first-ever state championship by topping Milwaukee Vincent, 63-55. Matthews led Memorial with 29 points and 10 rebounds, including a clutch dunk late in the game to ice the victory. Coming into the game, Vincent had won five state titles since 1996.

In leading his Spartans to victory, Matthews out-dueled UW-Madison recruit Marcus Landry......surely this is a trend that will continue!

Congratulations, Wesley.
