  • Oswego loss leaves Batavia looking for answers Dec 26, 2014 10:42 PM
    There are many reasons why teams don’t play their best. Some are easy to explain. Others are head scratchers. Batavia’s 64-47 loss to Oswego in Friday’s opening round of the 41st annual York Jack Tosh Holiday Classic fell into the latter category for Bulldogs head coach Jim Nazos.

    St. Charles East’s girls basketball team nearly knocked a team from the unbeaten ranks for the second consecutive game Friday night. This time, however, the fifth-seeded Saints (11-3) weren’t quite able to apply the finishing touch on top-seeded Glenbrook South (15-0) during their 52-46 semifinal setback in the 31st annual Bill Neibch Falcon Holiday Tournament at Wheaton North.

  • Geneva blows by Aurora Central Dec 26, 2014 10:03 PM
    Geneva returned to the scene of its 2014 basketball high-water mark Friday afternoon, taking the floor for the annual East Aurora Holiday Tournament on the same court in which it dispatched West Aurora last season in the sectional semifinals. The Vikings faced another Aurora team in its opening game of the tournament, this time Aurora Central. Geneva (8-1) used its significant length and size advantage to easily dispatch the Chargers 89-49.

  • Geneva rolls behind Novak’s 22 points Dec 26, 2014 9:44 PM
    Geneva had the unenviable task of playing the 8 o’clock game the morning after a major holiday. “It was not the best, but there are worse things,” said Geneva guard-forward Abby Novak.

  • Notre Dame takes command, sinks Naperville Central Dec 26, 2014 11:45 PM
    Naperville Central had everything under control going into the final quarter of its Friday night Wildcat Hardwood Classic semifinal against Notre Dame. The Redhawks had just surged ahead. They had their transition game in high gear. They were creating havoc on defense. And then Notre Dame (10-1) came out and got stops on four consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter, scoring 10 straight points and rallying back from 31-26 down for a 48-41 win and a spot in Saturday’s 8:45 p.m. championship game against Lake Park. Naperville Central will play Fremd in the third-place game at 7:15 p.m., but right now, that feels hollow.

  • Bahlmann connection helps Vernon Hills top Rolling Meadows Dec 26, 2014 11:46 PM
    There were all kinds of girl-friendly goodies to unwrap at the Bahlmann house on Christmas Day. “We got a lot of clothes and jewelry,” middle sister Monica said on behalf of older sister Brie and younger sister Becky. The three Bahlmann sisters themselves have been gifts that keep giving to the Vernon Hills girls basketball team. Brie, now a sophomore in college, helped the Cougars advance downstate in back-to-back seasons, 2011-12 and 2012-13. Monica, now a senior, was a sophomore on the second downstate team. On Friday at the Mundelein holiday tournament, Monica and Becky, a sophomore, helped put a big red bow on a 50-28 victory over a Rolling Meadows team that might be young and rebuilding, but is also still reputable after coming off of back-to-back trips downstate of its own.

  • St. Charles East dominates with defense this time Dec 27, 2014 12:09 AM
    St. Charles East showcased its prolific offense by averaging 95 points in the first two games of DeKalb’s 87th annual Chuck Dayton Holiday Classic. In Friday night’s semifinal matchup with Glenbrook North, the top-seeded Saints featured a suffocating first half defense that limited the Spartans to just 13 points.

  • Smith thinks big, and Stevenson’s back in Proviso West final Dec 26, 2014 11:01 PM
    With every shot he took Friday, the basket started to look bigger and bigger to Stevenson sophomore Justin Smith. During one hot stretch in the second quarter of the top-seeded Patriots semifinal contest with Kenwood Academy at the 54th annual Proviso West Holiday Tournament, Smith drained three 3-pointers — all from the same spot on the floor. Stevenson needed each one of them as the long-range display from Smith sparked a decisive 15-0 Patriots run to lift the defending tournament champions into the championship game with a 66-37 win over the Broncos. Stevenson (10-0) will face St. Joseph, a 72-65 winner over St. Rita in the other semifinal, for the tournament title at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The Patriots and Chargers met in the tournament last year in the semifinals.

  • Conant shows defensive prowess Dec 26, 2014 11:12 PM
    How often do you hear defense wins games? Conant’s girls basketball players heard it a lot from first-year coach Deirdre Naughton prior to its faceoff with Loyola in Friday’s semifinals of the Mundelein Mustangs Holiday Classic Tournament. “The biggest thing is that we came here talking about defense,” Naughton said. Talk about playing defense. The Cougars limited the Ramblers to 7 or fewer points in each quarter — including 3 in the first and 2 in the third — and posted a 28-18 triumph. Conant (10-2) will face Vernon Hills (12-3) for the championship of the tourney at 8 p.m. Saturday.
