  • Larkin ready for challenge from O’Mara, Benet Jan 16, 2014 7:20 PM
    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.

  • Cary-Grove comes back to beat Dundee-Crown Jan 14, 2014 11:13 PM
    The Cary-Grove boys basketball players have spent the last three weeks rallying, so playing eight more minutes of catch-up hardly fazed them Tuesday night. Trailing visiting Dundee-Crown by 5 points through three quarters, the Trojans sank all 5 field goal attempts and 5 of 7 free throws in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Chargers 16-5 to register a 44-38 victory in the Fox Valley Conferece Valley Division.

  • 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.

  • Grant takes second at Sycamore Jan 11, 2014 10:16 PM
    Fifth-ranked Hononegah led from start to finish, and lifted its second consecutive team trophy Saturday night at the 39th Sycamore wrestling invitational. The Indians, fresh off an eighth-place finish at the Dvorak, which they followed with an 11th-place finish at the high profile Clash in Rochester (Minn.) last weekend, used four individual titles to amass 634 points in this marathon 24-team event, 50.5 points more than runner-up Grant, whose depth kept it nearly 90 points clear of Bloomington, and its 498.5 total points. Reigning Fox Valley Conference champ McHenry (483.5) and its conference rival Huntley (443) would round out the top five.

    With 20 days off and only a few days of practice, Crystal Lake South girls basketball coach Kyle McCaughn wasn’t sure what to expect from his team during Saturday’s Fox Valley Conference Valley Division matchup with host Cary-Grove. The 13-year veteran didn’t need to worry. Jumping off to an 11-2 start, the Gators held off a valiant Cary-Grove comeback, then outscored the Trojans 11-5 in overtime in posting a 55-49 win.

  • Boys basketball/Fox Valley roundup Jan 10, 2014 11:19 PM
    Bartlett 51, Metea Valley 48: The Hawks (10-6, 2-3) fought back from a 6-point deficit in the final 4 minutes for a come-from-behind Upstate Eight Valley win over the Mustangs. Ryan DiCanio led all scorers with 15 points but in the last stages Robbie Jimenez (9 points) nailed 2 clutch 3-pointers and Brian Triphahn (8 points) sank one as well to get Bartlett over the hump. South Elgin 90, East Aurora 66: For the second time this season, the Storm (10-6, 3-2) watched 3 players score at least 20 points each in a UEC Valley win. Darius Wells nailed 5 3-pointers to go with his game-high 23 points while Matt Smith (21 points) and Matt McClure (20 points) combined for 64 points to help South Elgin out of a 15-2 first quarter hole. Another contributor was the switch on defense from man-to-man to zone, which allowed the Storm to convert transition layups off turnovers and helped outscore the Tomcats 24-9 in the third quarter. Burlington Central 70, Richmond-Burton 46: In Big Northern East action, Sean Fitzgerald poured in a game-high 21 points on 6 3-pointers for the Rockets (11-4, 3-1) in their 24-point rout of the visiting Rockets (10-3). Duncan Ozburn scored 17 points and Jacob Schutta registered in double figures with 13 as BC outscored R-B 27-14 in the third quarter and by 17 in the second half. Harvest Christian 54, Alden-Hebron 42: Noah Fox (27 points) and John Vislisel (20 points) put on a shooting clinic as they combined for 47 points and each shot over 50 percent from the field to knock off Alden-Hebron in Northeastern Athletic Conference action. Dan Turpin added 10 rebounds and 6 steals in the winning effort.

  • Crystal Lake South holds off Cary-Grove Jan 9, 2014 10:34 PM
    Much is made of the trio of Nick Gil, Eric Barone and Brian Pence when speaking of Crystal Lake South wrestling — and why not? This group headed by the No. 2 rated senior Gil has amassed a dazzling 71-11 record thus far, with Gil fresh off a championship ring at the prestigious Dvorak Invite during the holiday break. But while keeping an eye on these three, one had better not overlook the rest of the Gators’ lineup, which Thursday night in Cary-Grove proved to be the difference down the stretch during a Fox Valley Conference Valley Division dual thriller before a big Senior Night crowd. With Nick Dorn (182), Hunter Stroh (195) and Roland Gastfield (220) leading the charge, the visiting Gators outlasted their hosts 35-25 to stay within striking distance of McHenry with a perfect 4-0-0 record heading into the final two weeks of the regular season.

  • 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.
