Disappointing loss for Dundee-Crown

About the only thing that went right Saturday morning for the Dundee-Crown girls basketball team is it led twice early in the first quarter.

The Chargers were outrebounded, out-hustled and shot only 27 percent as Resurrection handed D-C a 59-26 loss at the 31st annual Charger Classic at Dundee-Crown.

"We didn't come ready to play," Chargers coach Sarah Miller said. "When you don't come mentally focused and ready to play, that's what happens."

D-C (5-13) will play Buffalo Grove (6-10) at 9:30 a.m. Monday in the 15th-place game. Resurrection faces Bartlett in the 13th-place game.

The Bandits led 11-8 after the first quarter. They scored the first 9 points of the second quarter to take a 20-8 lead. Lauren Lococo's basket with 5:25 remaining in the second quarter ended a 5-minute scoring drought for the Chargers.

Jesania Laboy got D-C within 8, 22-14, with 4:28 to go in the first half. But that was the last basket the Chargers scored for almost 11 minutes.

Resurrection scored 9 of the last 10 points of the first half. The only point for the Chargers came on a Lococo free throw after a technical foul on Bandits coach Keith Miniscalco.

The Bandits extended the run in the third quarter by scoring the first 16 points of the half to take a 46-15 lead. That capped a 25-1 run that spanned 10:51 from the second quarter into the third. A Kayla Lawrence basket with 1:37 remaining in the third quarter stopped Dundee-Crown's field-goal drought.

Resurrection led by as many as 37 in the fourth quarter.

"We will address what happened today and get ready to go," Miller said. "Monday we're going to have another tough game. These are the teams we want to play. It's only going to make us better."

Lococo led the Chargers with 5 points. Lawrence, Laboy and Emily Michalski each had 4 points. D-C was outrebounded 40-28 and allowed the Bandits to grab 16 offensive rebounds. The Chargers also committed 21 turnovers.

Monica Nunez scored 9 points to lead Resurrection. Maddie Larsen and Bre Sobotka each added 8 points.
