MAPLE PARK – The Kaneland boys basketball team used strong fourth quarter play from forward Cole Carlson and a last-minute steal by John Pruett to fend off Hinckley-Big Rock on Tuesday, 44-42, for a nonconference win.

Senior forward Matt Limbrunner led the Knights with 14 points while Pruett (12) and Ty Carlson (10) also were in double figures for the Knights.

“Matt Limbrunner did a really nice job to keep us in the game,” Kaneland coach Brian Johnson said. “He had a couple threes and made a couple nice post moves, and kind of kept us alive.”

The Knights (2-4) trailed, 25-22, at halftime, but limited the Royals to four points in the third quarter.

“It was a game that, morale-wise, getting a win was huge,” Johnson said. “[On Saturday] we had a tough one with Sycamore. Any type of win is nice to get, especially when you might be struggling a little bit. I’m really happy with our effort, and it’s nice to get some results from it.”

Elgin 52, Burlington Central 44: At Burlington, Central (0-7) was led by 13 points from Moter Deng and 12 from Duncan Ozburn in the nonconference loss.
