  • Geneva can't find an answer for O'MaraMar 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    From Quinten Payne to Kendall Stephens to even the last two weeks against Aaron Jordan and Jontrell Walker, finding a way to slow down an opponent's best player has been something of a trademark for Phil Ralston's Geneva Vikings.Taking the court Friday in the East Aurora sectional championship game, the Vikings got a look at another future Division I player, only unlike those stars above, this one does his damage in the paint. Benet's 6-foot-10 Sean O'Mara proved a matchup nightmare for Geneva, even with 6-7 sophomore Loudon Vollbrecht and 6-7 junior Mike Landi giving everything they had trying to contain him.

     
  • Benet celebrates their big win after the Benet vs. Geneva Class 4A East Aurora boys basketball sectional final Friday.

    Benet pulls away from GenevaMar 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    When the going got tough Friday in the Class 4A East Aurora sectional championship, the Benet Redwings tenderized Geneva inside and out. Leading 26-23 at halftime, No. 1 seed Benet began the third quarter on a 14-2 run and outscored the No. 6 Vikings 18-6 in the quarter. Given Benet's disruptive perimeter defenders in a man-to-man defense anchored by 6-foot-9 Xavier-bound Sean O'Mara, that margin essentially decided the outcome. Benet won 60-41, earning the Redwings' first sectional title since 2010 and denying Geneva its first sectional crown since 1963.
