  • Negron, Larkin topple Prairie Ridge Dec 20, 2014 8:50 PM
    There was a lesson learned after the Larkin boys basketball team dropped an Upstate River matchup to St. Charles North Friday night — that sophomore Christian Negron has to be more of a focal point offensively by being aggressive and selfish. While the 6-foot-6 inch Negron carries an alternative approach, there was no doubt that Larkin benefits from that game plan after he poured in 18 points in Larkin’s 58-48 win over Prairie Ridge to open pool play of the 2014 Hinkle Holiday Classic hosted by Jacobs in Algonquin Saturday.

  • No drop-off for Larkin in win over West Chicago Dec 13, 2014 11:08 PM
    Larkin boys basketball coach Deryn Carter was concerned going into Saturday’s game at West Chicago that his Royals would get caught up in all the hoopla surrounding Friday’s blowout win over archrival Elgin. As it turned out, Carter’s pregame warning wasn’t a prelude to anything bigger, as Larkin carried the momentum over and buried three 3-pointers in the game’s first 1:44, eventually turning back West Chicago 62-42 in Upstate Eight Conference River Division action.

  • St. Charles East clamps down on Larkin Dec 6, 2014 12:06 AM
    It’s official according to St. Charles East coach Patrick Woods: the Saints boys basketball program “has a lockdown defender.” His name? Soccer standout and current guard Evan DiLeonardi. Shortly after East’s win over rival St. Charles North last weekend, the 6-foot-2 junior guard who held Northwestern commit Jordan Nash to 5 points in a 6-point loss to St. Joseph on Nov. 28, had an entire week of preparation for his defensive assignment against two-time defending Upstate River champ Larkin. The plan was to attack Royals’ 6-6 sophomore standout forward Christian Negron, limit his touches and keep him a nonfactor. With Friday’s 62-54 win in Elgin, DiLeonardi proved Woods’ words to be accurate.
