After all, the North Chicago girls basketball team was back to defend its title in the 26th Annual Northern Illinois Holiday Classic against Crystal Lake South, the same team it defeated for the crown a year ago. “We knew they were going to be looking to redeem themselves,” North Chicago coach Laurence Brown said after his team claimed the title once again with a 39-36 victory on Tuesday afternoon at McHenry.

    One of the decisions Larkin boys basketball coach Deryn Carter pondered prior to the Royals’ 85-73 win at the Hinkle Holiday Classic Tuesday was to figure out whether or not to allow Marian Central’s dynamic guard Adam Pischke to go off in the scoring column and clamp down on every other Hurricane in the process.

Points were harder to come by a night later. It was the first meeting of the teams this season. Washington defeated Chicago in the first round of last year’s playoffs, 4-1.

  • Jacobs’ upset bid falls short at Wheaton North Dec 23, 2014 10:44 PM
    Jacobs girls basketball coach Joe Benoit admittedly was looking for a “signature win” from his team Tuesday night.

  • Hampshire falls to Moline Dec 23, 2014 10:49 PM
    Coach Bob Barnett ticked off the reasons Hampshire lost to Moline. “Twenty-one turnovers, 3-for-10 free throws,” he recounted. “We had 13 turnovers in the first half. And I believe they had 9 offensive rebounds to go along with 13 turnovers.” For all that, the Whip-Purs found themselves just 5 points down in the waning moments. They whittled away at an 18-point second-half deficit, but it was too little, too late, and the Maroons hung on for a 54-49 win at the Chuck Dayton tournament in DeKalb.

  • Jacobs blows past Grant to set up semifinal vs. Larkin Dec 23, 2014 10:54 PM
    Jacobs senior guard Mike Canady epitomizes his belief that he has never played on a basketball team this unselfish. Canady knew he was on borrowed time as a starter until Northern Michigan-bound Kenton Mack returned from a knee injury. Now Canady is making the most of his time off the bench such as Tuesday night when he scored 11 points to help the Golden Eagles finish 3-0 in pool play with a 69-23 victory over Grant in the Hinkle Holiday Classic in Algonquin.
