    Daily Herald report

    Kennede Miller scored 21 points Saturday to lead South Elgin to a 74-44 Upstate Eight Valley girls basketball win over East Aurora.

    Miller hit 4 3-pointers as the Storm (11-6, 4-1) stayed in a virtual tie for second place in the division with Bartlett.

    Nadia Yang added 16 pointers for South Elgin and Mackie Kelleher had 11.

    Dundee-Crown 41, McHenry 39: The Chargers (6-15, 1-4) picked up their first Valley division win in the Fox Valley Conference, hanging onto victory at home. Even with no girls scoring in double figures, the Chargers used a balance attack from Melissa Barker, who finished with 9 points and Emily Michalski and Kayla Lawrence, each of whom had 8 points. Barker netted 3 3-pointers on her way to lead Dundee-Crown in scoring.

    Johnsburg 48, Hampshire 47: Despite a 20-point performance from sophomore Emma Benoit, the Whip-Purs (7-9, 2-4) could not overcome a 5-point deficit going into the fourth quarter at home in the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division matchup. Benoit scored 12 points in the fourth alone, but the rest of the offense was unable to produce. Sara Finn added 14 points for the Whip-Purs, with all but one basket coming from beyond the arc.

    St. Charles East 51, Elgin 37: The Maroons (5-11, 1-4) could not muster up enough offense, falling to St. Charles East on the road in the Upstate Eight River. The offense was led once again by sophomore Alisha Panthier, who finished with a game-high 14 points and 12 rebounds. Elgin coach Dr. Nick Bumbales has been impressed by the play of Panthier since being called up. "She played really well again tonight, she's playing really well for a sophomore since being called up," he said. Melanie Berg also chipped in 9 points for the Maroons.

    Batavia 53, Streamwood 32: With no Sabres scoring in double figures, Streamwood (7-8, 2-3) could not keep its winning streak alive, falling on the road in Upstate Eight River play. Kiana Jeremiah scored 9 points, including a 3-pointer, for Streamwood, which had trouble scoring until the third quarter when it had 14 points in the frame.

    Huntley 59, Jacobs 42: Sam Andrews and Ali Andrews could have won the game on their point totals alone for the Red Raiders (15-3, 5-0), who continued their great start in the FVC Valley, remaining undefeated at home as well. Ali Andrews finished with 24 points, while sister Sam had 21, including 3 3-pointers. As a team, Huntley finished 12 of 14 from the free throw line, with Sam Andrews going 8-for-9 from the charity stripe. The Golden Eagles (3-15, 1-4), despite being down 14 by halftime, were consistent on offense all night, scoring in double digits in every quarter. Tiffany Frighetto finished with 18 points for Jacobs on 6 3-pointers, while teammate Jennifer Barnec finished the night with 12 points.

    St. Edward 65, Aurora Christian 22: The Green Wave (11-6) were able to pick up a win in Suburban Christian Crossover play thanks in part to big nights from Madelyn Spagnola, Katie Swanson and a tenacious defense. Holding Aurora Christian to just 10 first-half points, the Green Wave were able to build a 25-point lead before the first half ended. "We used the fast break to our advantage tonight," St. Edward coach Michelle Dawson said. Spagnola and Swanson both finished with 14 points, while Spagnola hit the only 2 3-pointers in the game.

    Women's basketball

    ECC 59, Morton College 41: With three players scoring in double figures, the Spartans eased their way to victory in this ISCC contest on the road. Led by Jordan Bartelt, who finished with 12 points, the Spartans capitalized on an 8-point lead at the half and made 6 of 8 free throws down the stretch to ensure the game never got any closer. Jen Dumoulin and Alexa Diaz both finished with 11 points in the winning effort.
