Sydney Staver scored 21 points as host Mineral Point took a 55-43 victory over Cuba City Friday night, ending the Cubans’ 61-game winning streak.
The Cubans (12-1 overall, 6-1 SWAL and the defending two time WIAA Division 4 state champions) entered the game ranked No. 1 in Division 4 by The Associated Press.
The Pointers (10-2, 7-0), ranked seventh in Division 4, took sole possession of first place in the league.
Cuba City also had a 54-game winning streak within the SWAL.
Mineral Point gained major momentum going into the half after making back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds to extend its lead to 29-21.
The two teams will meet again February 18 in Cuba City, and likely a third time in the WIAA tournament shortly after.
