    Boys basketball: Scouting the Class 3-4A postseason in the Fox Valley

     
  • Jacobs notches 14th win in a row Feb 27, 2015 11:55 PM
    When Jacobs boys basketball coach Jimmy Roberts analyzed his team’s schedule after a disappointing fourth place finish in the Hinkle Holiday Classic, he told his team there was absolutely no reason for it to lose and of its final 14 regular-season games. In fact, Roberts said he was going to do everything he possibly could to win 14-straight, and knew his Golden Eagles had it in them, too. Parts 1 through 13, completed over the last 8 weeks, racked up an undefeated Fox Valley Conference Valley Division crown and nonconference wins against Waukegan, Elgin and Libertyville. But part 14 of that long, second-half odyssey finally concluded Friday on Senior Night when Jacobs beat Prairie Ridge 71-61 in Algonquin in an FVC crossover between the two division leaders for the unofficial conference title.

     
  • Jacobs caps a perfect FVC Valley season Feb 24, 2015 11:23 PM
    It’s one thing for a team to say that it wants to march through a Fox Valley Conference boys basketball season undefeated prior to its inception. But it’s another thing for a team to actually make due on its goal in the fervor it was done after Jacobs’ 53-35 win over rival Dundee-Crown at the Eagles Nest Tuesday marked a perfect 10-0 mark in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division play.

  • Peak performance powers Barrington Feb 21, 2015 8:39 PM
    Right on schedule, the Barrington boys swimming team was peaking. That paid serious dividends at the Illinois High School Association sectional meet the Broncos hosted Saturday afternoon. Barrington led the way with six champions out of 12 total events, all of whom advanced to next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. The Broncos also had eight total qualifiers, the most among a crowded field of strong squads, including Stevenson, which won the team title with 238 points.

     
  • Bartlett’s Lee, Cary-Grove’s Langanis headed to state Feb 21, 2015 10:37 PM
    While they swam well throughout Saturday’s St. Charles East boys swimming sectional, the Bartlett-Streamwood co-op was unable to get a swimmer qualified until the final individual event. Then senior Matt Lee swam a solid 100-yard breaststroke, finished second, beat the state qualifying time and earned his second consecutive trip to the state finals.

    Capture the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball championship outright. Check. Earn a No. 2 seed in the postseason. Check. Jacobs was able to mark off another goal Friday, winning its 20th game of the season with a 57-41 victory over host Huntley in FVC Valley action.

     
  • Dundee-Crown nabs first regional since 2003 Feb 19, 2015 11:01 PM
    Sarah Miller was a sophomore playing basketball at Mundelein High School, and most of the current Dundee-Crown girls basketball players hadn’t touched more than a nerf ball the last time the Chargers won a regional championship. But all that changed at Elgin’s Chesbrough Field House Thursday night when D-C beat District 300 rival Jacobs 57-50 in the Class 4A Elgin regional title game, D-C’s first piece of postseason hardware since 2003.

     
  • Jacobs’ Riedel overcomes the odds to reach state Feb 19, 2015 9:31 PM
    Broken bones are never a good thing. But in the case of Jacobs senior girls gymnastics standout Allison Riedel, bad was taken to another level. During the Fremd sectional her sophomore year, Riedel broke her foot — as in really broke her foot.

  • Jacobs wins; Cary-Grove’s Gregoire breaks school record Feb 18, 2015 1:30 AM
    Using a mix of 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones, the Cary-Grove boys basketball team on Tuesday played the best half of defense any team has thrown at streaking Jacobs in weeks. But nothing seems to phase these Golden Eagles for long. Leading by 3 points at the half, Jacobs guard Chrishawn Orange scored 11 of his game-high 27 points during a 17-3 burst at the outset of the third quarter, and the Golden Eagles held off a late Cary-Grove charge for a 66-57 victory in Algonquin.

     
  • Dundee-Crown, Jacobs to meet for regional title Feb 17, 2015 11:16 PM
    The girls basketball players from Dundee-Crown and Jacobs were just starting to play the game the last time the Chargers and Golden Eagles played for a regional championship. Thursday night, the District 300 rivals will meet for the Class 4A Elgin regional championship after top-seeded D-C beat No. 4 Larkin 65-57 and No. 3 Jacobs upended No. 2 Streamwood 56-47 in Tuesday’s semifinals at Chesbrough Field House. Thursday’s 7 p.m. title game will be the first time since 2005 the Chargers and Golden Eagles have met for a regional title. That was the second straight year Jacobs beat D-C in a regional title game.

  • Cary-Grove claims 8th straight FVC title Feb 14, 2015 11:40 PM
    Death, taxes and Cary-Grove winning Fox Valley Conference boys swimming championships. All these seem to be certainties. For the eighth consecutive season, Cary-Grove, which also has swimmers from District 155 schools Crystal Lake South, Prairie Ridge and Crystal Lake Central, claimed the FVC title Saturday at Woodstock North. Scoring 356 points, the Trojans easily defeated second place McHenry, which scored 285 points.

     
  • Cary-Grove’s Cullen a sectional champ again Feb 14, 2015 10:55 PM
    You would be hard pressed to find a better two-day performance at the Barrington wrestling sectional than the one Michael Cullen turned in. With a characteristic flourish, Cullen did it again. The Cary-Grove senior left the competition in his wake on the way to a third sectional title in four years to send the three-time state medalist into next weekend’s Class 3A state tournament as one of the favorites at 120 pounds when things begin in Champaign on Thursday.

     
  • Jacobs clinches share of FVC Valley crown Feb 15, 2015 1:30 AM
    Funny what a year of experience can mean. The last time the Jacobs boys basketball players ventured into The Swamp in January of 2014, they grabbed a 19-point, third-quarter lead only to see Crystal Lake South erupt for a 33-2 run that vaulted it to victory. Saturday offered a chance to turn the tables for the better-seasoned Golden Eagles. Trailing 7-1, Jacobs used a mix of full-court pressure and half-court traps to force 14 first-half turnovers that fueled a 27-0 run. The senior-heavy Golden Eagles cruised to a 61-38 win after leading 33-13 at the half.
