Cuba City's undefeated season ended Thursday night at the Kohl Center, as the Cubans lost the Whitefish Bay Dominican for the second straight year in Madison.

Cuba City lost 55-47 to Dominican to end their season at 26-1.

Coach Jerry Petitgoue, in his 42nd season with the Cubans, made sure his team wasn't going to be intimidated, even though they didn't have any starter taller than 6 feet 3, and Dominican had a 6 foot 9 center in Diamond Stone.

The Cubans kept it close early, with Jason Derby hitting four three pointers.  He had 12, and the Cubans led by 3 at the break.

But Dominican got a game high 19 points from Marquette recruit Duane Wilson to seal the victory.
