  • Kenny, Neuqua Valley hang tough Nov 21, 2012 11:14 PM
    Neuqua Valley center Pat Kenny is no slouch standing 6-foot-4, but he still gives up 4 inches to standout Riverside-Brookfield big man Miki Ljuboja. What Kenny lacks in height, he certainly makes up for with hustle around the basket. Kenny's hard-nosed play and the Wildcats' steady game executing the fundamentals led the way to a 72-55 victory over the Bulldogs in the second round of the Bill VandeMerkt Thanksgiving Classic boys basketball tournament on Wednesday in Riverside.

    For a football league with only five teams, there’s an awful lot to keep track of in the Metro Suburban Conference.

  • Rough second half dooms St. Francis Mar 5, 2011 12:20 AM
    Yes, it is possible to play very well in the first half but not as well in the second half and still win. But that didn’t happen to St. Francis on Friday night against Riverside-Brookfield in the Class 3A Nazareth regional final in LaGrange Park. The Bulldogs (22-5) opened a 10-point lead on the Spartans (15-12) after three quarters and blew the game out in the final period with a 25-point effort to advance with a 63-41 victory. Riverside-Brookfield, a second seed in its own sectional, will face seventh-seeded Chicago Orr in semifinal play this Wednesday. Orr beat Chicago Marshall 60-54, also on Friday, to win the Marshall regional. The 10th-seeded Spartans led 17-13 after the first quarter on 6-of-8 shooting. Although St. Francis cooled in the second quarter for just five points, it trailed just 23-22 at halftime and it continued to look like it could be anybody’s contest. “The third quarter killed us,” St. Francis coach Shawn Healy said. “We panicked a little bit and it was downhill from there. We were not in sync. In the first half it was the way we wanted things. We had the pace we wanted.” The Spartans’ Michael Scholl, who scored 12 points, sank two free throws with 5:33 left in the period to put St. Francis within 4. But with the help of a balanced scoring attack, R-B finished the quarter on a 10-2 run. “They played tough defense all game,” Scholl said. “We came out and executed the best we could. Riverside-Brookfield is a good team.” R-B’s momentum carried over into the fourth quarter as Ryan Jackson scored 11 second-half points and teammate Luke Nortier was good for 13 during that timespan. Jackson finished with 25 points and 15 rebounds. Bulldogs coach Tom McCloskey wanted to see his team control the tempo of the game after halftime. “I didn’t like the pace (in the first half). We stepped up and stayed patient. We got some stops and got some scores,” he said. “We hit some big 3s. Ryan hit some free throws and Luke had a big night. He gave us a lift.” Ryan Coyle led St. Francis with 15 points. The Spartans went into the game after defeating fifth-seeded Nazareth 42-39 on Wednesday. “This group is second to none, a special team,” Healy said. “When things were not going well, this team continue to practice and prepare with the same effort and intensity.”

  • Glenbard S. goes undefeated through league Feb 12, 2011 12:52 AM
    The game wasn’t perfect, but the Metro Suburban Conference record sure is. Glenbard South completed an undefeated run through its new league with a 58-45 victory Friday night at Riverside-Brookfield. “Obviously, we did what we had to do,” Raiders coach Julie Fonda said. “There were some challenges tonight that we did not see. The box-and-oned Nevena (Markovic). They did a nice job on her. She did her best to get open and sometimes the calls don’t go your way when that happens, but I think she worked hard and did what she had to do.” Despite the extra attention Markovic still scored 14 points to go with 7 rebounds and 7 assists. But the Bulldogs also had a hard time stopping guards Alyse Cates and Theresa Scheet. Cates, a senior, scored a game-high 18 points, and the sophomore Scheet added 12. They combined to make seven 3-pointers. “My 3s finally went in,” the soft-spoken Cates said. Scheet’s production came from extra work. “She struggled yesterday in practice with her shot so she stayed after and shot a little bit, and obviously it paid off for her,” Fonda said. “She did a nice job of taking the open shot and setting her feet and following through, and that’s what she needs to do.” The Raiders (23-3, 12-0) jumped out to a 12-2 lead, but Riverside-Brookfield didn’t get discouraged, getting within a point in the fourth quarter before the Raiders pulled away in the final four minutes. “I don’t really know what happened, but we were able to come back,” Cates said. “That’s kind of been our nemesis all year,” Fonda said. “We lapse a little bit. We look up at that scoreboard and see we’re up 12-2 and we relax, and that definitely can’t be the scenario. You can’t count somebody out of a game.”

  • Glenbard South can’t stop Jackson, R-B Feb 12, 2011 12:52 AM
    Take away Ryan Jackson and Glenbard South defeats Riverside-Brookfield in a rout. But nobody was going to take away Jackson on Friday night. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior guard scored 40 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, dished 5 assists and grabbed 3 steals in a 91-71 Bulldogs victory against Glenbard South. Jackson finished 14 of 25 from the field and hit seven 3-point shots, including one from just beyond midcourt that beat the halftime buzzer. “That kind of took the wind out of our sails,” Raiders coach Wade Hardtke said. The Bulldogs were 14 of 31 from 3-point range on the night. “I don’t know what they shot, but they shot the ball awfully well,” Hardtke said. “That’s a good ballclub. I didn’t think there was any way they could shoot the ball as well as they did in the first half, and they came out and shot the ball equally as well in the second half.” Riverside-Brookfield jumped on the Raiders early and took a 50-38 lead into the halftime locker room. After three quarters it was 74-57. “We were in way too much of a hurry,” Hardtke said. “We shot the ball way too early in our possession, especially in a game like tonight. Whether it was turning the ball over early or shooting the ball too early, it just gives a team like that more opportunities to go down and score. We could never really settle in.” Jackson came out of the game with 2:53 to play having missed his only 3 shots of the fourth quarter. “I knew that they were going to try to double-team me a lot, so I figured I’d pick my spots to look to score,” said Jackson, whose scoring total tied a personal best. “Whenever they came to double-team me I was able to find my teammates.” The victory clinched a share of the Metro Suburban Conference championship for Riverside-Brookfield (17-4, 9-0), its 10th straight league title. Joe Harks led Glenbard South (9-12, 6-3) with 19 points, and Wes Sanders and Jon Berrospi added 10 apiece.

  • St. Viator bounces back Jan 10, 2011 11:16 PM
    St. Viator’s girls basketball players were disappointed with their performance on Saturday night against Resurrection. “We had something to prove (Monday),” said Lions senior guard Taylor Skala, who was playing in her third game after missing five weeks with a bad ankle sprain. “We wanted to show that we were a better team that we were against Resurrection (45-31 loss in Chicago).” The Lions succeeded and Skala showed she is back to her old form as the senior tossed in 15 points with 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal in a 58-37 victory over Riverside- Brookfield. The Lions (11-9) improved to 2-0 in pool play of the Season’s End tourney and will face Hersey (15-3, 2-0) at 7 p.m. next Monday. Skala’s 3-pointer gave the Lions a 5-0 lead early and they never looked back. “Mr. (Tom) Blenner (assistant to Lions head coach Paul Bjerkness) told us in warm-ups that if we could get the early lead, the game could be ours and we did that,” said Lions 6-foot-1 junior center Lauren Rooney, who also scored 15 points with 11 rebounds, 4 blocked shots, 1 steal and 1 rebound. “We started out with a lot of energy and we were moving the ball much better than we did against Resurrection.” Skala had two nice back-to-back assists on baskets to Rooney and Kim McAvoy which gave the Lions a 14-6 lead after one quarter. The lead grew to 27-12 by half as junior Katie Gavin started out the second quarter with 3-pointer. Gavin finished with 6 points while Morgan Hess, McAvoy and Tracy Supergan each chipped in 4. “Composure was the key,” added Skala, who will play for Rockhurst University in Kansas City next season. “I felt we had more movement in our offense this game. We needed to settle down after that last game.” Riverside-Brookfield (6-11) will face Latin (11-7) next Monday at 5:30 p.m. at Hersey. “Taylor Skala was the difference,” said Huskies coach Larry Rocco. “We didn’t think she would play (ankle injury) so we wanted to take No. 10 (Gavin) out of the game. “We should have gone to man-to-man defense earlier in the game and we should have pressed earlier.” The Bulldogs were led by junior Danielle Peco’s 17 points, including three 3-pointers. The 5-6 guard was 7-of-10 from the field. “But as a team, we shot 27 percent from the field,” Rocco said. “You can’t beat anyone when you do that. We have to shoot better.”

  • R-B stifles Glenbard South Jan 8, 2011 1:00 AM
    For most of the first half, it looked as if Riverside-Brookfield and Glenbard South would come down to the final moments before anything was decided Friday night on Pack the Place night in Glen Ellyn. However, a strong finish to the opening half, paired with a strong second half, gave R-B all the breathing room it needed in a 79-73 Metro Suburban Conference victory. Riverside-Brookfield (9-3, 3-0) and Glenbard South (4-8, 2-2) went back and forth for the majority of the first half, as neither team led by more than four points. Then Raiders big man Dusko Despot was forced to the bench with three fouls and the Bulldogs took full advantage, as they ended the first half on a 14-6 run to stake the Bulldogs to a 43-35 halftime lead. Leading the charge for Riverside-Brookfield were senior guard Ryan Jackson and 6-foot-9 senior center Alex Dziagwa. “When their big man (Despot) went out, if I went to the basket or if anybody missed a shot, ‘Big Z’ was able to get some easy putbacks,” Jackson said. Jackson led all scorers with 29 points as he attacked the hoop as well as hit three 3-pointers to keep the Raiders’ defense off-balance. Dziagwa also chipped in with 14 points and 8 rebounds. “I was trying to get to the basket and get some fouls and get in a groove,” Jackson said. “I also wanted to feed ‘Big Z’ for some easy layups.” The Bulldogs fattened their lead to 13 points after the third period, as they continued to attack the post while hitting some open 3-pointers. Senior guard Joe Harks valiantly kept the Raiders within striking distance, pouring in a team-high 25 points, including 10 second-quarter points while Despot was on the bench in foul trouble. “We let off them in the second half; we weren’t as intense as we were in the first half,” Harks said. “(Dziagwa) was taking over in the paint in the second half with Dusko in foul trouble and that hurt us a lot.” Despot finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, but despite his double-double, the Raiders’ inability to stop the Bulldogs from controlling the paint, both defensively and on the glass sealed their fate. “We knew if we kept playing good defense they would eventually start missing shots and we would keep hitting ours,” Jackson said. “With their big man on the bench it was easy for us.”
