MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield boys basketball came into its Wisconsin Valley Conference showdown with D.C. Everest less than 100 percent.


A number of Marshfield players battled illness in the past week and D.C. Everest wasn’t about to show any mercy. The Evergreens’ 1-2-2 full-court trapping defense caused problems early and Marshfield couldn’t recover from a big run in the opening five minutes, falling to Everest 74-50 on Friday night at Marshfield High School.
