Burlington Central heads to Plano semis
Daily Herald report

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.
