  • 11 photos
  • RICHTON PARK | Thornton's boys basketball team had one wish for Christmas. "The guys really want to play Marian," coach Troy Jackson said. "They may beat the brakes off us, but the guys want to play them." The Wildcats will get their chance to play the Times' top-ranked team by virtue of a 71-67 win Saturday over Bolingbrook in the semifinals of the McDipper, coupled with Marian's 63-43 win over Joliet Central. Thus, the McDipper's defending champion Spartans (9-1) will meet the region's most successful entrant in Rich South's 41-year-old holiday tourney.

  • 17 photos
  • RICHTON PARK | Justin Taylor and Jamani Pierce knew they and their Thornton teammates were starting to let the game get away from them. A smaller King team was outhustling and outrebounding the Wildcats. They said that was when they got going and never stopped as Thornton beat King 59-45 in one quarterfinal Friday at the McDipper XLI. With the win, the Wildcats (6-3) will face Bolingbrook, a 66-59 winner over Rich South, at 7 p.m. today in one semifinal. Marian Catholic made short work of Rich East with an 81-63 win in the nightcap.

  • 10 photos
  • RICHTON PARK | Crete-Monee couldn't contain Bolingbrook's inside game and in the first half, it couldn't control the basketball. The Warriors stumbled out of the gate in falling 81-63 to the Raiders in a first-round game of the McDipper XLI. Times No. 1 Marian Catholic, the defending McDipper champions, and Thornton got off to good starts as both won first-round games handily. Crete-Monee (7-3) committed 10 first-half turnovers and could not keep the bigger Raiders off the boards.

T.F. NORTH VS RICHARDS IN BASKETBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 9 photos
  • CALUMET CITY | Despite being a young team, there are no moral victories for the T.F. North boys basketball team. The Meteors fell 61-56 to Richards in overtime in a South Suburban Conference crossover game Friday night at T.F. North. The Meteors battled back from a 10-point deficit at the half, but the young Meteors, who feature only two seniors on the varsity roster, were unable to control the ball in overtime. The Meteors lost 18 turnovers in the game and trailed the entire overtime.

T.F. SOUTH VS SANDBURG IN CLASS 4A REGIONAL SEMIFINAL VOLLEYBALL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 12 photos
  • TINLEY PARK | It was the worst possible ending, and the best possible message. After T.F. South trailed, 23-18, in the third set of its Andrew Regional final, and 24-21, and at 24-23 when Crystal Lee slammed home her 13th kill of the night following a heart-stopping dig by Cori Reynolds, after a timeout as a reeling Sandburg tried to gather itself, Justine Flores stepped to the line to serve for the tie. And floated the ball wide. "I was just trying to get it in," she said later. "It hit the wrong part of my hand." The Sandburg half of the crowd erupted over the 25-22, 17-25, 25-23 win that sent them to their own Class 4A sectional for a 7 p.m. Tuesday semifinal opposite Marist. The T.F. South half groaned. Flores collapsed to the floor. Her teammates ran to her, and picked her up. "That meant a lot," she said. "It said it wasn't my fault. It said we are a team we win as a team, and we lose as a team." Twenty-six times in 31 outings this season, the Rebels won. Against the Eagles (30-7), they won more points 70-67 but Sandburg eked out a win in the opening set and, after nearly getting blocked out of the gym in Set 2, another in the closer to advance. Seven different Rebels had kills on the night. Briana Lilly, Lee, Leah Lagestee and Jenna Pasko put up tremendous blocks. Ashtyn Kapovich, Reynolds and Flores, senior defensive stalwarts, anchored a back row that cleaned up what blocks didn't swat down.
