  • Hinsdale Central humbles Hersey Dec 23, 2014 9:55 PM
    Hinsdale Central’s girls basketball team, seeded No. 7, sure has the right attitude for the 31st annual Bill Neibch Falcon Holiday Girls Basketball Classic at Wheaton North. “Last year we were the No. 6 seed and made it to the championship game,” said fifth-year coach Red Devils coach Tom McKenna, who also spent several years steering the St. Ignatius girls program. “So why not as the No. 7 seed.” Why not? The girls from Hinsdale sure looked like they were headed in the right direction in Tuesday’s quarterfinals of the 16-team event. Led by 5-foot-10 senior Gabrielle Rush’s 29 points, the Red Devils scored a 72-58 victory over No. 2 seeded Hersey, the same team they lost to in the title game a year ago.

  • Vernon Hills nips Cary-Grove Dec 23, 2014 11:27 PM
    So far, the Vernon Hills girls basketball team has lost only a handful of games. But the 11-3 Cougars have seen a common denominator in their losses. They’ve lost leads late. On Tuesday at the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic, Vernon Hills avoided that fate. Narrowly. The Cougars were up by as many as 12 points in the fourth quarter against Cary-Grove, only to see that lead shrink and shrink and shrink. But some late free throws by Monica Bahlmann and Haley Lieberman helped Vernon Hills ice a 3-point victory. “Real proud of the kids for hanging in there,” Vernon Hills coach Paul Brettner said. “We’ve been talking about finishing games. We didn’t finish on some of those earlier games that were losses and we didn’t really handle ourselves as well as you’d hope. It’s nice to see us do real well at the end.” The Cougars had a good fourth quarter overall, thanks in large part to Kasey Firnbach, who scored 9 of her 13 points in the fourth quarter. She also pulled down 4 big rebounds in the quarter. Vernon Hills had entered the fourth quarter up only 24-21. “We knew we really needed to step up and score some points in the fourth quarter because it had been a close game early on,” Firnbach said. “Everybody was contributing. We got screens going, we got open, we got a couple of plays going. We executed what we’ve been practicing.” Becky Bahlmann added 8 points for Vernon Hills and Cary-Grove (6-8) got 13 points out of Katie Barker, who is averaging just shy of 20 points a game. The Cougars often face-guarded Barker, one of the better scorers in the area. “I knew they were going to have a plan for (Barker), and I’m fine with that. Because if she gets double-teamed, someone’s going to be wide open,” Cary-Grove coach Rod Saffert said. “The problem for us tonight is that we just didn’t hit our shots. We had them, we didn’t make them, especially in the paint. We missed a lot of shots there. It was a game of missed opportunities for us.”

  • Rolling Meadows goes to extremes, tops Mundelein Dec 23, 2014 11:27 PM
    There’s not much middle ground with the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team. Shooting-wise, it’s either one extreme, or the other. “Program-wide, we tell our kids that we want to shoot threes and layups, that’s it. We’re not much of a mid-range team,” Rolling Meadows coach Ryan Kirkorsky said. “That’s our philosophy. And I like that style.” Kirkorsky saw plenty that he liked on Tuesday night at the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic. His team drained 10 three-pointers to out-shoot an almost equally-hot Mundelein team from long range. A 58-43 victory moved Rolling Meadows to 10-3 on the season.

  • Rappe, Carmel enjoy tourney rebound Dec 23, 2014 10:55 PM

She also had 5 rebounds and 4 steals.

  • Hughes’ practice helps Warren shoot down Palatine Dec 23, 2014 8:39 PM
    The shots just weren’t falling for Warren freshman Jordyn Hughes. So the perfect remedy for Hughes was to, well, shoot. Prior to the Blue Devils third game of the 2014 Blue Devil Classic against Palatine, Hughes went to Libertyville Sports Complex and worked with her shooting coaches. “We all saw the type of player that Jordyn can be over the summer,” said Warren coach John Stanczykiewicz. “Her teammates saw that she could score 18, 20, 28 points over the summer — they knew Jordyn could score.” The little bit of extra practice went a long way for Hughes on Tuesday night as her high school career-high 20 points lifted the Devils to their third straight win in the tournament 48-36 over Palatine. Warren (4-8) will face Grayslake Central at 4:30 p.m. Friday while Palatine (5-9) will face Wheeling at 3 p.m.

  • Conant surges past Libertyville Dec 23, 2014 7:18 PM
    On paper, this looked like a good one. Twice-beaten in 9 games came the Conant Cougars. With 10 wins already were the Libertyville Wildcats. But late in the second quarter, the scoreboard at the Mundelein High School Holiday Classic read: Conant 23, Libertyville 4.How could that be? And just as the game looked to be over but for the shouting, the Wildcats went on a 15-0 run. And just like that it was clearly anyone’s game. Both clubs had runaway victories on Monday night, but now only Conant stands unbeaten in the tournament. The Cougars (8-2) absorbed Libertyville’s comeback blow on Tuesday night and posted a decisive 45-31 win.

  • A Kuzmanic clinic as Wheeling tops Grayslake Central Dec 23, 2014 8:30 PM
    For nearly a decade a Kuzmanic has visited Warren to play basketball for Wheeling in the annual Blue Devil Classic. That impressive run ends this weekend. “Hopefully I’ll come back and watch,” said Deanna Kuzmanic, who next year will be playing for the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The sister of former Wheeling stars Stephanie and Kellie and the youngest child, Deanna put on a “Kuzmanic Classic,” so to speak, in Tuesday’s Classic contest against Grayslake Central. Her 24 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds, 5 steals and 2 blocked shots led Wheeling to a 61-38 victory, keeping the Wildcats’ undefeated record in the tournament intact.
