  • Burlington Central heads to Plano semis Dec 27, 2013 11:17 PM
    Burlington Central 75, Yorkville 64: Duncan Ozburn scored 22 points and had 9 rebounds to lead the Rockets (9-2) into the semifinals of the Plano Christmas Classic, where they will face Morris at 8:30 p.m. today. Sean Fitzgerald and James Raney each had 13 points for Burlington Central. “We came out and played really well in the second half,” said BC coach Brett Porto, whose team led just 33-32 at halftime. “Ozburn had a really good game inside tonight.” Cary-Grove 49, Lakes 34: Cary-Grove jumped to a 10-0 lead and relied on defense to avenge a 6-point road loss to the Eagles on Dec. 13 with this victory at the Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs Friday. Jason Gregoire scored 26 points to lead the Trojans (6-6) into the consolation championship game against South Elgin at 4:30 p.m. “It was a really good team win,” Gregoire said. “It was a big win because we lost to them before so we really came out with a chip on our shoulder. We really wanted to win this game. I thought we locked down on defense and that was the reason why.” The victory was the third straight for the Trojans, who limited their opponent to a season-low 34 points for the second straight game. “Defensively, we got back and we didn’t want to press,” Cary-Grove coach Ralph Schuetzle said. “We just said let’s be good, be solid in the half court and not let them penetrate. We switched all screens and they really couldn’t attack us very well. And we got on the glass. The first time we played they just murdered us on the glass.” Junior guard Tramone Hudson led Lakes (4-8) with 11 points. The Eagles will face Crystal Lake South for seventh place at 3 p.m. “The first 3 games (of the tournament) we’ve shown some good things, but this was a setback, obviously,” Lakes coach Chris Snyder said. “Being a young team, we just weren’t ready for Cary-Grove in terms of energy. We’re still learning those little lessons in the big picture of things.” Hampshire 64, Harlem 63: Down by 6 points with 2 minutes left in overtime, Hampshire stormed back to win its second straight on the final day of the Chuck Dayton Tournament in DeKalb. Ryan Cork led the Whip-Purs (5-8) with 30 points. Matthew Bridges scored 9 for Hampshire and Trey Schramm had 8. St. Edward 67, Perspectives Charter 61: DaVontae Elam scored 23 points and Joseph French added 15 to lead the Green Wave (12-1) at the IC/Westmont Tournament. Nick Duffy added 11 points and Danny Favela had 10 for St. Edward. Wauconda 63, Westminster Christian 50: Brad Barker had 16 points and Sam Carani added 12 for Westminster (6-7) at the E.C. Nichols Tournament in Marengo. Chicago Alcott 64, Streamwood 51: Cole Seger had 17 points to lead Streamwood at the Wheeling tournament.

    Grayslake North 54, Streamwood 32: Grayslake North coach Nate Flannery had a message for his Knights early in the first quarter of their contest with Streamwood at the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic Tournament. “I told them that we can’t keep calling and wasting early timeouts every time we get in trouble,” Flannery said. “We are slowly starting to work our way out of these early problems.” The Knights went to work late in the second quarter then into over drive into the third and fourth quarters to roll by the Sabres 54-32. North (6-5) will face Libertyville at 5 p.m. Thursday while Streamwood will take on Highland Park in the consolation bracket the same day at 10:30 a.m. “We have a real loose group and I am ok with that,” Flannery said. “For whatever reason we come out flat and it has cost us early in the season. Its good they are learning from that now.” Two Knights the Sabres had no answer for were seniors Kendall Detweiler and Brittany Thibeaux. Detweiler scored 12 of her 16 points in the first half while Thibeaux was huge in an 18-3 third quarter with 10 of her game-high 20 in the quarter. Streamwood (3-6) was led by Winona State-bound senior Hannah McGlone. Her 11 first-half points helped the Sabres to an early lead of 11-8 after one quarter.

  • Carmel’s first game at Jacobs a winner Dec 21, 2013 4:49 PM
    Carmel Catholic’s attempt at tying a pair of national records — no fouls committed and no two-point field goals allowed — ended in the second half. In what did turn out to be history-making for Carmel — its first game in Jacobs’ tournament after years competing in Wheeling’s Hardwood Classic — the Corsairs settled for recording a 43-34 win over Cary-Grove in the opening game of the Hinkle Holiday Classic in Algonquin Saturday morning.

  • New Hinkle Holiday Classic format more fan-friendly Dec 19, 2013 9:41 PM
    The schedule makers at Jacobs High School have redesigned their boys basketball tournament with the high school fan in mind. Previously, teams in the same pool played their games back to back. That system made it convenient for coaches to scout upcoming opponents, but the casual fan had to pick and choose the most attractive matchups to see over a 12-hour span. In an effort to maximize attendance this Saturday, the opening-day schedule has been adjusted to showcase four of the day’s most compelling matchups consecutively, beginning at 3 p.m.

  • Charger Classic at Dundee-Crown strong as ever Dec 18, 2013 9:24 PM
    Teri Rodgers calls it “a litmus test.” The New Trier girls basketball coach also says being the No. 1 seed at the Dundee-Crown Charger Classic Christmas Tournament really means little. “Calling someone a No. 1 seed is kind of silly,” Rodgers says. “There's 16 great teams. It's a great test because you know you're going to go out and play really good teams. It's a litmus test. You come away from Dundee-Crown knowing your strengths and weaknesses and you can work on the weaknesses for the rest of the year. You can only have that true test when you're playing quality teams, which is what you get at Dundee-Crown.” New Trier is one of the last originals of the Charger Classic, now in its 31st year. And while others — most recently Montini — have put together good tournaments, Dundee-Crown has stood the test of time of being one of the top holiday tournaments year in and year out.

  • Cary-Grove weathers rough start, tops Stevenson Dec 14, 2013 9:54 PM
    Cary-Grove did not surrender to the type of start that would have finished a lot of teams. The Trojans were just a minute and 53 seconds into their nonconference girls basketball game Saturday evening when coach Rod Saffert called timeout. All 9 points on the scoreboard belonged to host Stevenson. “Getting down by 9 kind of shocked us,” said C-G junior Katie Barker, “but it kind of motivated us to catch up.” And the Trojans eventually passed the Patriots and a key test. Barker overcame some cold stretches by heating up at crucial times en route to game-highs of 21 points and 16 rebounds in a 44-39 victory in Lincolnshire.
