Sophomore point guard, Connor Green, drives to the rim for two of his team-high 28 points Tuesday vs. Montello. Green led the Cardinals to their first post-season victory since 2011.

The Brodhead boys finished their season with just a 5-17 record, but it was good enough to earn the seven seed in their side of the division four bracket. The seven seed would give them a home game, however, as they hosted the ten seed in the Montello Hilltoppers.

Things were back and forth to start this one but Connor Green hit a three-pointer late in the half to give the Cardinals their largest lead of the night, up 31-23. Some solid free throw shooting from Cody Malcook, plus Green forcing a steal and taking it all the way to the basket, allowed the Cards to expand their lead into double digits up 36-25 with three minutes until the half.
