Final at the Dipper

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

In the first overtime in the Big Dipper in 20 years

A three-pointer by Jamal Gray with 46 second to play gave Thornton a 71-69 play
Sumter goes to the line with 29 second to play and makes two to tie the game
Thornton calls time with nine seconds left in OT
Reggie Smith flys to the basket and scores with three second to go 73-71 Thornton

Thornton had four players in double figures and Rich East had three

Rich South got 30 from Morse and upset Leo 68-64 in the third-pace game

Five Illinois senior girls basketball players -- Young's Ashlee Anderson, Marshall's Adrienne "NuNu" GodBold, Lincoln-Way East's Kersten Magrum, St. Charles North's Kelsey Smith and Marian Catholic's Kaila Turner -- are on the prelimnary ballot for a spot in the McDonald's All-American game that will be played in Miami, Fla.

Anderson (Pitt) and Turner (Notre Dame) are headed to the Big East while GodBold and Magrum (Illinois) and Smith (Michigan State) are Big Ten-bound

First game for Waukegan (8-0, 3-0 Central Suburban South) since taking over as No. 1 in Michael O'Brien's Super 25 Monday

The Bulldogs came out on top 59-53 in a game in which neither team was up by more than five until the last two minutes

Despite some serious foul trouble Jereme Richmond led the way with 20 points for Waukegan, Colin Nickerson had 13 and Quan Conner 11
Sean Stanley led the Trevians with 19 points, Fred Heldring added 13 and Alex Rossi 11

Before the game I had a chance to chat with Waukegan coach Ron Askew
He told me that his team "was playing the way people didn't think Waukegan could play -- sharing the ball and playing together."
I agree
I've watched Waukegan play basketball for 45 years, since I was a high school freshman
This team is for real and should make a statement to the state at Pontiac

And I agree with OB
Save an unbelievable performance against Thornton by Simeon's Jeremy Jones, JR is the best player I've seen

Surgery looms for Michala Johnson

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Montini 6-3 junior center Michala Johnson is expected to undergo surgery to repair a ligament in her left knee.
Johnson first injured her knee in late July and after undergoing extensive rehabilitation was cleared to play.
But five minutes into her first game of the season, Johnson went down. After an examination, doctors recommended surgery as the best option for her future.
