Lena-Winslow overcome Wildt's wild performance

ERIE, Ill. – After his team fell behind 13-5 in the opening quarter, Nich Wildt kept his Erie boys basketball team in the contest. But in the end, his five 3-point baskets and 17 points weren’t quite enough Saturday as Lena-Winslow beat the host school 48-40 at the Cliff Warkins Cardinal Classic.

Hank Holm matched Wildt’s 17 to lead Lena-Winslow.

Erie was scheduled to play Mercer County for ninth place today at 1:30 p.m.

ERIE, Ill. – A slow first half hurt Morrison in a 53-33 loss to Stark County.

The Mustangs managed to score just 10 points in the first half, falling behind 31-10.

Jake Berchtold led Stark County with 13 points, while Noah Hogue had 10 for Morrison.

Morrison was scheduled to finish tournament play at 1:30 p.m. today against Orion in the 11th-place game.

An 8-2 edge in the third quarter was the key as Riverdale defeated Mercer County 48-40. The Rams used a balanced attack, with four players scoring eight or more points. Jake Gellerstedt led the way with 13. Spencer Wood topped Mercer County with 13.
