The Boys Basketball State Tournament field is set; and for the first time in a decade, the Madison area won't have a team in Division One. 

Saturday in Sun Prairie, Madison Memorial played Mukwanago in the D1 Sectional Finals. The Spartans controlled the first half, leading by as many as 11. The second half was a different story, as Mukwanago chipped away at the lead and Memorial struggled with turnovers. Mukwanago took the lead with a little over two minutes left in the game, and won 55-52.

The loss snaps Memorial's run of nine straight years advancing to state. 

In D2, two local teams battled as DeForest and Stoughton played for the right to go to the Kohl Center. Stoughton jumped out to a fast start, holding a ten point lead at half time. DeForest stormed back in the second half, cutting the lead to one with less than a minute to go in regulation. Stoughton made their free throws down the stretch to win 55-51.

The Vikings will play Wisconsin Lutheran Friday at 3:15 p.m. 

In Division Three, Lodi and Wisconsin Dells played for the second time this year, this time in Middleton; and the results were different. Lodi jumped all over the Chiefs as they looked to avenge an early season loss to the Dells. Shane Wimann kept the Chiefs in it, leading his team with 17 points, but Brady Moses poured in a game high 20 points for Lodi, as they won 73-59 

Lodi will play East Troy Friday at 10:30 a.m. 

In Division Four, Cuba City looked to keep their undefeated season alive as they played Onalaska Luther in Baraboo. The Cubans dug themselves into a 10 point first half hole, before rallying in the second half. The teams were tied at 58 at the end of regulation and went to overtime. In the extra stanza, the Cubans seized control, winning 77-74. 

Cuba City will play Dominican Thursday at 8:15 p.m. 

Finally in D5, Randolph continued their dynastic run as they defeated Racine Lutheran 44-30. The Crusaders kept it competitive in the first half, trailing 13-10 at the end of the first quarter, and 22-14 at halftime. Randolph never relinquished control, and are headed back to state. 

Randolph plays Elmwood Thursday at 3:15 p.m. All games are at the Kohl Center.
