    After winning the first four games of its own Thanksgiving tournament by an average of 38 points, the Burlington Central girls basketball team relished the opportunity to be pushed a little Tuesday night.

  • Elk Grove thwarts South Elgin’s plan Nov 25, 2014 10:45 PM
    South Elgin boys basketball coach Matt Petersen had a good defensive scheme for controlling Elk Grove’s offense. “We knew that if we put pressure on them right from the start we could force the turnovers and get some scores,” said Petersen. “But when the game started, it didn’t happen. We made Elk Grove look real comfortable at the start of the game.” The Grenadiers hit six 3-point baskets in the first quarter on the way to finishing with 12. Add to that two old-fashioned 3-point plays and Elk Grove had a 25-17 lead after one quarter. Dan Hadler scored 9 of his 20 points to go along with 7 rebounds in the Grenadiers’ 82-71 win over the Storm at the 29th annual Chuck Mitchell Tournament held at Fenton High School. Elk Grove improved to 2-0 while South Elgin, which played inspired basketball in spots, fell to 1-1.

  • Hersey teams up to top Barrington Nov 25, 2014 11:27 PM
    In the final quarter, the starters on the Hersey bench were cheering for their teammates on the floor just as loud as the reserves had been applauding at the start of the game. “That’s the first step we like to take — being good teammates,” said senior forward Annie Korff. “Whatever we can do to keep everyone happy and positive, that’s what we all do.” And the Huskies kept their fans quite happy all evening at the Ken Carter Gymnasium in Arlington Heights. Bursting out to a 14-0 lead, Hersey kept the pressure on start to finish in a 71-39 victory over Barrington on Tuesday night to complete pool play in the Buffalo Grove Bison Classic.
