Despite early foul trouble in the second half and a big push by Elgin, the Royals used a big early lead to secure a 56-40 win on their home court in the first round of the Elgin City Classic.

    When a contested off-balance 3-pointer by Larkin senior guard Charles Sanders popped up into the air off the front rim, it appeared the Hinkle Holiday Classic championship game with Barrington was headed to a second overtime Saturday night in Algonquin.

Flores, Johnnic and Ives earned their second consecutive individual crowns, and Aaron Schliesmann (120) and George Beck (220) joined their team mates atop the podium as the Tigers made it two team titles in a row after outscoring runnerup Fremd 221.50-189.

  • Larkin legs out win over Marian Central Dec 23, 2014 10:29 PM
    One of the decisions Larkin boys basketball coach Deryn Carter pondered prior to the Royals’ 85-73 win at the Hinkle Holiday Classic Tuesday was to figure out whether or not to allow Marian Central’s dynamic guard Adam Pischke to go off in the scoring column and clamp down on every other Hurricane in the process.

    Photos from the Larkin vs Prairie Ridge boys basketball game on Saturday, Dec. 20, in Algonquin.

  • 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.
