\u00a0REMUS \u2013 Chippewa Hills and Montabella boys and girls basketball teams will be playing each other New Year\u2019s Day at Little Caesar\u2019s Arena as a high school pregame session to the Detroit Pistons game. Chippewa Hills senior Madison Wrisley is looking forward to this game along with the rest of the season as a key player for the Warriors. This marks her fourth basketball season. \u201cMy freshman year we had a lot of seniors on the team so it was more of an upperclassman run team,\u201d Wrisley said. \u201cMy sophomore year it was more of a rebuilding season. Last year, we were low on numbers and only had a varsity team.\u201d The numbers are much higher this season. \u201cWe have nine on varsity and 13 on JV,\u201d Wrisley said, adding there are three seniors to provide leadership. \u201cI\u2019m going to be center and post.\u201d She\u2019s been in those positions in previous seasons. \u201cMy strength definitely is boxing out and rebounding,\u201d she said. \u201cThis year I\u2019m working on outside shots.\u201d The Warriors are an improved team and have a 2-3 record. They are home on Jan. 7 against Reed City. \u201cI think we\u2019re a fast team so we can fast break a lot,\u201d Wrisley said. \u201cI think we\u2019ll be a good team defensively.\u201d Wrisley hopes to improve on her ball handling. Wrisley was also on the volleyball team that lost in the district finals to Alma, a week prior to starting basketball practices. \u201cI definitely think we fought to the end,\u201d she said. \u201cI think it was a tough loss. Things happen.\u201d Wrisley plays Chippewa Hills softball in the spring. But she said basketball is her top sport. \u201cI\u2019m looking to go to college (for basketball),\u201d Wrisley said, adding she\u2019s been contacted by school but doesn't know where\u2019s she\u2019s going yet.
