The Wisconsin Dells boys basketball team improved to 4-0 on the season with a 61-55 victory over host Baraboo on Tuesday night.

The Chiefs were led by the trio of Jackson Sveum (15 points), Tanner Brandt (13 points) and Brett Hirst (12 points), who combined to score 40 of their team’s 61 points.

Baraboo led the Chiefs 44-42 with 7 minutes, 20 seconds left in the game when Mason Peterson, who scored a game-high 26 points, hit a 3-pointer. Wisconsin Dells responded with an 8-0 run to take a 50-44 lead with 5:47 to play.

The T-Birds got back within one possession when Peterson hit another 3-pointer with 3:55 remaining to cut the deficit to 50-47, but that was as close as Baraboo could get the rest of the way.
