Cardinals can't fly against Vikings, lose 57-45 in quarters

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Destinee Blue was thinking she had to score every time she touched the ball.

It didn't get quite that drastic, but Blue more than did her share in leading Milwaukee Vincent to a 57-45 victory over Middleton in today's Division 1 quarterfinals of the Wisconsin State Girls Basketball Tournament in Madison.

Blue Scored 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting and pulled down 14 rebounds for the Vikings (20-3). Teri Stamps added 12 points for Vincent, which shot 41 percent (19-46).

JoLyn Owen led the Cardinals (20-4) with 12 points. But she was the lone Middleton player in double figures in a game that almost seemed over in less than 3 minutes.

That's because Vincent, the defending champion after winning in its first state appearance last year, scored the game's first 12 points.

Still Middleton came back to challenge the Vikings, but they held on to win.
