A special game for Benet's Gerken
Feb 13, 2015 11:33 PM - The Benet boys basketball team's senior night is Saturday night, but Friday's home game against Nazareth still had extra importance to senior reserve Sean Gerken. The 6-foot-5 Gerken lives in Western Springs and attended St. John of the Cross, a feeder school for the East Suburban Catholic Conference high school in nearby LaGrange Park. "I know a couple of the guys on the team, so it's a little fun to win the rivalry, get a little bragging rights," Gerken said. "(But) it's just like any other game, really -- a conference game, just hoping to win and help the team out."
