CLASS 4A GIRLS BASKETBALL
Bolingbrook 56, Hersey 30
NORMAL — Going into the contest, Hersey knew they would
need a near perfect game in order to defeat Bolingbrook. Well,
unfortunately, this wasn't the night for perfection as the Huskies lose
Sophomore phenom Morgan Tuck knocked down
28 to advance to the Raiders fifth consecutive appearance in a state
title game. "My team got me going," Tuck said. "They told me to be
tough in the post and not just let people push me around. So I took
their criticism and went out and tried to play better."
On the other side of the ball, Hersey's Megan Rogowski
struggled offensively going 1-for-18 from the field and finishing with 7
points, all but two from the charity stripe.
"They played great defense and put a lot of pressure on me," Rogowski
said. "When I got shots off they weren't my normal shots I like to
The Raiders have won 23 in a row. They haven’t lost since Dec. 18, 2009
when they played Long Beach Poly (Calif.) in the Nike Tournament of
Champions in Phoenix, Ariz.
“I could tell they were starting to get
winded,” Bolingbrook guard Ariel Massengale said. “Our experience
helped us, and when they got tired we just kept pushing.”
Young 54, Fenwick 38
NORMAL, Ill. — Whitney Young displayed pure domination in
the victory over Hersey in this Class 4A semifinal 54-38. Young’s Alexis
Lloyd knocked down 10 points but her main task on the evening was to
guard Fenwick star and Duke recruit Tricia Liston.
Lloyd’s defense may not have limited
Liston’s point total but it did prevent her from getting comfortable
in the game. She had to work for every single shot she made. Liston
even got frustrated in the third quarter and received a technical.
This was her first technical in her high school career.
“I was in the post and the [Young player]
had her arms wrapped around me and they called the foul, and we were
still sort of tangled up and I had the ball and kind of took the
ball away,” Liston said. “There were no exchanged words.”
The Dolphins went into halftime with a 24-16 lead. In the
second half, Young began pulling away and went on a 9-0 run.
“We were able to wear them down and contain Tricia,” Young coach Corry
Irvin said. “We were hoping not to give her a career night. We feel
Alexis can hold the other team’s best player.”
The table is set for the Class 4A finals... R-E-M-A-T-C-H!!! It’s going
to be a Young vs. Bolingbrook state championship rematch game for the
third year in a row. WHEW!!! We'll be at the baseline for the 8:15pm
