Girls basketball: Thunder win opener

SAVANNA, Ill. — West Carroll kicked off the girls basketball season with a 54-37 victory against visiting Polo on Monday.

Abby Maike led the Thunder with 19 points, including nine in the fourth quarter when they pulled away. Hayley Guilinger added 12 points and Tre Baisden finished with 11 for West Carroll.

The Thunder trailed 21-20 at the half, but used a big third quarter by Guilinger to pull in front 35-31. Guilinger made a pair of 3-pointers and finished the quarter with eight points. The Maike and Baisden (six points) helped the Thunder pull away in the final eight minutes.

Keeley Meyer led Polo with 19 points, including six apiece in the second and third quarters.

Erie drops opener

WOODHULL, Ill. — Cold shooting plagued Erie on Monday as it opened the girls basketball season with a 44-27 loss to host Ridgewood at the Ridgewood Thanksgiving Tournament.

Freshman guard Molly Shannon scored 11 points to lead Ridgewood, a co-op team with players from AlWood and Cambridge high schools.

“We struggled shooting tonight, going 9-of-49 from the floor,” Erie coach Brian Howell said. “They were able to hit six 3s on us, and that was the difference. We also ran into early foul issues and struggled to play through it.”

The Cardinals got six points each from Bailee Clausen, Rachel Cobert and Emily Cox. Courtney Cobert had three assists for Erie, while she and her sister each grabbed four rebounds.

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
