GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Oak Creek beat Superior 73-52 for its first Division 1 girls state basketball championship on Saturday at the Resch Center behind a stunning display of shooting.

Oak Creek made four consecutive three-pointers late in the third quarter to turn an 11-point advantage into a 20-point lead. The Knights finished 9-of-15 from three-point range.
