It was Cardinals vs. Cardinals Friday night as Middleton hosted Sun Prairie in boys basketball action. Middleton used an 18-0 run to build a lead that was too big for Sun Prairie to overcome as Middleton came away with a 58-52 win.

That lead wouldn’t last. 

Middleton closed the half with a 4-0 run to trail 23-20 at halftime. After the break, Middleton kept firing. They scored 18 unanswered points to take a 34-23 lead. The home Cardinals outscored their opponents 16-2 in the third quarter.
