Thomas, Wauconda shoot down R-B
Nov 24, 2012 12:02 AM - Kodey Thomas can thank his father, Vann, for his cool first name. "My dad saved me," Wauconda's 6-foot-3 senior forward said. "My mom (Laura) wanted to name me Edgar. ... I'm not a big fan (of the name Edgar)." On Friday night at Richmond-Burton, Wauconda could thank Kodey Thomas for his fourth-quarter cool. His 3-point play with 2:36 left was critical for the Bulldogs, who were in jeopardy of suffering a third straight tough loss. But when Richmond-Burton's Brian Wells couldn't get a tough 3-pointer from the right corner to go down, while he was being double-teamed, Wauconda had escaped with a 53-50 win in third-round action of the Johnsburg/Richmond-Burton tournament.
