MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jeronne Maymon will be moving on to bigger things soon enough. But before he starts thinking about playing at the next level, he wants to help Madison Memorial get back to the top.
Maymon signed a letter of intent with Marquette in November. He could end up playing a key role there right away, as the Golden Eagles will lose their three senior stars to graduation.
But first, Maymon wants to help the Spartans forget about last year's two-point overtime loss to Wauwatosa East in the Division 1 finals.
The 6-foot-7 forward will lead the Spartans into tomorrow's opening game against Germantown as state tournament play begins at the Kohl Center.
It's the sixth consecutive state tournament appearance for Madison Memorial, including a championship in 2005.
Germantown is making its second straight state tournament appearance after qualifying for the first time last season. The Warhawks beat Menomonee Falls 57-52 to advance.
