MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Susan Bischoff scored 10 points and had nine rebounds today to lead Flambeau to a 40-37 victory over Wausau Newman in the Division Four semifinals of the state high school girls basketball tournament.

The victory improved the Falcons' record to 25-1 as they bid for a second straight state championship.

Bischoff defended on the game-tying shot in the final minute, when Newman's Val Schuster had the ball inside.

The score at the time was 39-37 and, following the miss by Schuster, freshman Courtney Wanish hit a free throw with 19 seconds to play.

The Falcons had a chance to tie, but a three-point try went awry and a final shot at the buzzer would have resulted in only two points.

Schuster's 13 points led Newman, which dropped to 20-5.
