Nine players on the Sycamore basketball roster also played football for a successful team that lost to Montini in a Class 5A state semifinal on Nov. 23. Those players had only the benefit a walk-through before they faced Central at the Spartans’ annual Thanksgiving tournament, according to Spartans coach Drew Stacy.

    Kane County Forest Preserve District officials are interested in haggling with ComEd over the rights to run new power lines and towers through the Muirhead preserve. In short, if ComEd comes up without enough money, commissioners may be willing to allow the lines to run along existing railroad tracks. That would make private farmers in the area happy. The lines will run through their property in the current plan.

    Following last Friday’s convincing win at No. 16 Neuqua Valley, No. 4 Larkin faces another tough road test at No. 7 Benet Academy on Saturday. The challenge facing Larkin (14-2) senior forwards Drew Jones (6-5), Brayden Royse (6-5) and freshman Christian Negron (6-5) is Benet 6-foot-9 center Sean O’Mara. Committed to Xavier, O’Mara scored 17 points last Friday in the Redwings’ 61-56 win at No. 8 York (14-2). Like Benet (9-4), Larkin has played a tough nonconference schedule, including games against Morgan Park and Zion-Benton. However, the Royals have yet to face a big man as skilled as O’Mara.

  • Burlington Central wins with defense Jan 15, 2014 9:28 PM
    On a night when its offense was as frigid as the temperature outside, the Burlington Central boys basketball team relied on defense to win. The Rockets, who made just 13 of 56 shots for 23 percent, wreaked havoc on Woodstock defensively and pulled away late in the fourth quarter for a 37-28 nonconference win on Rocket Hill. “We battled and found a way to get the W,” said Central coach Brett Porto. “It wasn’t pretty and there were a lot of people shaking their heads but someone had to win and we won.”

  • Big Tuesday night on tap in Fox Valley Jan 13, 2014 8:21 PM
    It may not qualify as “rivalry night” across the board but it most definitely is an interesting and busy Tuesday around the Fox Valley in girls basketball. There are two rivalry games on tap — Bartlett at Streamwood and Dundee-Crown at Jacobs — as well as three other games that should draw some fan interest, one of which could have some conference implications to it.

  • Big early run sends Burlington C. past Kaneland Jan 11, 2014 9:31 PM

  • Burlington Central routs Kaneland Jan 11, 2014 11:41 PM
    Saturday’s nonconference meeting between the boys basketball teams from visiting Kaneland and Burlington Central on Pack the Place Night figured to be a close one.The Knights were coming off a thrilling 1-point victory a day earlier against Morris, a team that defeated Burlington Central by 7 points two weeks ago at the Plano Christmas Tournament. However, the Rockets turned it into a one-sided affair. Central shot 7 of 10 from 3-point range and 25 of 49 overall, won the rebounding battle 27-14, turned the ball over only 9 times and held Kaneland top scorers John Pruett and Tyler Carlson to 19 combined points in a 67-43 win.

  • Time to get these conference races restarted Jan 7, 2014 8:38 PM
    While the teenagers who play girls basketball around the Fox Valley may have been happy about a couple extra days off school, coaches surely were champing at the bit the last two days to get the season restarted. But Mother Nature took care of that. And even though I was missing all the subzero cold while vacationing in Florida, I too am anxious to get the second half of the season going, because the first half has provided enough excitement to lead us to believe the 2014 portion of the campaign is going to be an interesting one.
