The Elgin girls basketball team got to do something Thursday night it rarely has done the last several years. Smile. Taking over a tight game in the second quarter, the Maroons pulled away from Alden-Hebron, holding as much as a 24-point lead early in the fourth quarter before coming away with a 55-40 victory in the semifinals of the Elgin Academy Thanksgiving Tournament. Elgin (2-1) will play the winner of tonight's game between Nazareth and Woodlands in the 3:30 p.m. Saturday championship game.
