At East Aurora: Rallying from a 12-point deficit, Aurora Central Catholic (1-10) forced overtime before falling 73-71 to Oak Lawn in the fifth-place game at the East Aurora Holiday Tournament. Despite top scorer Sean Harreld fouling out with 6:16 left in regulation, Mac Cowen and brothers Brett Czerak and Andy Czerak lifted the Chargers down the stretch. A free throw by Matt Schaefer sent the game into overtime tied 62-62. ACC led 69-65 on an Andy Czerak layup from brother Brett's bounce pass, but Oak Lawn (3-6) closed on an 8-2 run, including a game-winning 3-pointer, to win 73-71.
"As long as we're getting better that's the most important thing, we've just got to keep improving," said Chargers coach Nathan Drye. "Outside of the slow start I thought we battled pretty hard today to get back in it. We just couldn't finish it when we had a chance to."
