    St. Edward holds off Aurora Christian
    Brian Schaumburg

    The St. Edward boys basketball team found itself down by 4 points midway through the fourth quarter Saturday night.

    The Green Wave kept its composure, went on an 11-0 run in less than a 2-minute span and defeated Aurora Christian, 70-62, in Elgin.

    "Coach (PJ White) told us, 'Don't panic.' We've been in this situation before," said Davontae Elam, who had a 3-point play with 2:48 remaining to give St. Edward the lead for good. "We slowed down and ran the offense. We spread the ball around and got open shots."

    The Eagles (13-11) had their largest lead of the game, 47-38, with 2:37 remaining in the third quarter. They led 49-43 heading into the fourth.

    Zach Singer's 3-point play with 4:03 to go in the fourth gave Aurora Christian a 57-53 lead.

    Logan Danner scored to get St. Edward (19-7) within 2, 57-55, with 3:31 remaining. Elam's 3-point play gave the Green Wave a 58-55 lead. Joe French hit two free throws and Elam had two free throws and a layup to complete the 11-0 run to give St. Edward a 64-57 lead with 1:57 remaining.

    "We kept our poise, made our switches on defense and made our shots on offense," White said. "It wasn't anything special."

    Aurora Christian didn't have a field goal in the final 4:03, just hitting five free throws the rest of the game. The Green Wave hit 6 of 8 free throws in the final 1:11.

    "I think those guys (St. Edward) just wanted the game more than we did," Eagles coach Pat McNamara said.

    Elam scored a game-high 23 points, 17 in the second half, and added 6 rebounds. French added 21 points.

    Wes Wolfe led Aurora Christian with 19 points, but none in the fourth quarter. Johnathan Harrell finished with 18 points, 14 in the second half, and 7 rebounds. Singer added 13 points.
