West Aurora smelled blood in the water. Unfortunately for the St. Charles North boys basketball team, there were would be few respites. After taking a double-digit lead into halftime of the second quarterfinal of the Pontiac Holiday Tournament, the Blackhawks exploded in the second half, scoring 47 points on 20-for-31 field-goal shooting.
