    Schaumburg-Proviso East history lesson

    By Marty Maciaszek


    Story Continues Below

    When Schaumburg hosts unbeaten Proviso East in Friday's Class 4A sectional final it will be the sixth meeting between the two schools since 1997. Here's a look back at the other matchups:

    Half-and-half (2010): Everything went right early for Schaumburg as it led by as much as 10 points and by nine at halftime in the St. Charles East Thanksgiving tournament. But a 2-point third quarter allowed Proviso East to make up ground and go on to a 61-52 victory. Javon McDonald had 22 points and four 3s and Kyle Bolger had 16 points for the Saxons; Keith Carter had 13 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists and Trashaun Carroll scored 19 for the Pirates.

    A painful lesson (2004): Schaumburg was defending its John E. Paul Thanksgiving title but this one was all Proviso East as it led by as much as 34 in a 61-33 rout. Future Big Ten players led the way with 24 points from Phillip Perry (Wisconsin) and 13 points and 11 rebounds from Brian Carlwell (Illinois). Jake Pancratz led the Saxons with 8 points.

    A championship finish (2003): Schaumburg led by just 3 points going into the fourth quarter but used a 20-7 finishing kick en route to a 78-62 victory and John E. Paul Thanksgiving crown. Craig Reichel scored 28 points and Laurence Bradley added 16 for the Saxons.

    Catch 22 (2000): The No. 22 was not magical for the Saxons in a 77-56 loss to Proviso East in the second round of the Proviso West Holiday tourney. Stars Dee and Shannon Brown scored 22 points apiece and fueled a decisive 22-2 blitz while Mark Pancratz led the Saxons with 15. A loss the next day to Thornridge would be their last in a season that ended with a Class AA title trophy.

    Making a statement (1997): Schaumburg was still a relative unknown on the state scene when it made its early-morning debut in the prestigious Proviso West Holiday tourney against the four-time state champion Pirates. The Saxons were ready for the task by scoring the first 13 points of a 66-55 win that started a run to a second-place finish. Jason Edwards had 18 points and Jason Beall had 14 and helped limit future DePaul and NBA big man Steven Hunter to 11 points on 4-for-12 shooting.
