The boys basketball team didn't do it pretty, but they did it, beating Port 50-41 on Thursday. The Knights are off to Homestead on Friday night.
In a game that went down to the final 40 seconds, Nicolet beat host Port Washington 50-41 on Thursday in a North Shore Conference boys basketball game. The Knights (12-6, 7-3 NSC) lost to the Pirates (7-10, 4-6) in December 52-49, and Thursday's game was just as tight. Nicolet led 20-18 at halftime and remained on top until Sawyer Mosely hit a 3-pointer with 52 seconds left in the third quarter to put the Pirates on top 30-27. The fourth quarter was back and forth until Nicolet's Raheem Lemons scored a basket, was fouled and made the free throw to put the Knights back on top 41-39. Port Washington senior Eric Graff hit a clutch 12-footer to bring his team within 44-41 with just 40 seconds left in the game. But it was all Nicolet after that…

The win gave Nicolet a 9-4 record, while Milwaukee Vincent fell to 2-7. “I told the guys in the locker room this wasn’t an impressive victory,” Hepp said. “We’ve got to close gaps on our defense.
