The Watertown High School boys basketball team (Overall: 6-4, Badger South: 3-2) is playing solid basketball as they work their way through the dog days of January. The Goslings dropped their first two games of the season (at Lake Mills and vs DeForest), but since then has won six of their last eight. The current four game win streak includes a pair of wins at the Cudahy Southside Classic (73-67 over Waukesha South & 59-57 over Cudahy) over the holiday break. On January 7th, Watertown hit the century mark in a 101-77 win over Destiney. Their only two defeats in this stretch include a 72-71 triple-overtime game verse Monona Grove and tough loss at Stoughton. Senior Cade Oiler (13.4ppg) leads a balanced Watertown attack that has five players average over nine points per game. They include; Kory Stas(12.6), Oliver Meyers(10ppg), Deon Nailing(9.3) and Nathan Gapinski(9.0). Coach Moulton tells DailyDodge.com that the Badger South is super balanced and it’s tough to predict who will win night in and night out. He says that if the Goslings are going to be in the mix for a league title in February, they must keep competing defensively, take care of the basketball on offense, and with a senior heavy team they must continue to get better. The Goslings will travel to Oconomowoc for a non-conference tilt on Tuesday night, then have a pair of Badger South road games on Thursday and Friday. Thursday they head to Edgewood and Friday they get on the bus and head to league leader Monroe.
