  • Kaneland tips DeKalb in final seconds Jan 10, 2015 12:07 AM
    Despite missing 2 of 3 free throws to end the first half, Kaneland junior Dylan Vaca had no reservations stepping back up to the line with the game hanging in the balance. With the score tied at 52-52 against DeKalb, Vaca was fouled driving to the basket with 1.4 seconds remaining. Vaca calmly dropped in the first free throw before missing the second intentionally to give the Knights an emotional 53-52 Northern Illinois Big XII East victory in their first home game of the season.

  • St. Charles East claims Chuck Dayton title Dec 27, 2014 11:19 PM
    St. Charles East did everything possible to impress this week at the 87th annual Chuck Dayton Tournament, flashing its high-octane offense and turnover-forcing defense against one overwhelmed opponent after another. Everything except play a game with anything on the line in the second half — anything more than whether the Saints would reach triple digits. The Saints entered Saturday night’s championship game against host DeKalb having won their first three tournament games by an average of 37 points. The championship game proved more of the same, played in front of a large and lively crowd. The Saints were pushed for almost a half, their star in foul trouble — and they still ended up winning by 24.

    Hosting an undefeated DeKalb team Friday night that averages 46 points a game, Kaneland didn’t have much room for error hoping to snap a rare 2-game losing streak.
