MOOSEHEART – Mooseheart boys basketball coach Ron Ahrens searched his thoughts for a moment while assessing senior Makur Puou’s triple-double against Hope Academy Tuesday night.

First and foremost, Puou’s 22 points, 14 rebounds and 11 blocks helped Mooseheart to a 69-51 victory.

Beyond that, one aspect of Puou’s night in particular especially turned the tide.

“His defensive presence underneath made a huge difference in the game,” Ahrens said.

That’s because the 6-foot-10 Puou had a more than capable running mate. Teammate Mangisto Deng contributed 30 points and 10 rebounds as Mooseheart improved to 2-2.

“They played extremely well,” Ahrens said. “It was like ‘The Mac and Manny Show’ all night.”

Aurora Christian Burney Wilkie Classic: Aurora Christian 71, IMSA 30: R.D. Lutze paced Aurora Christian with 18 points, while Johnny Harrell contributed 10 assists.


Geneva 72, South Elgin 66 (OT): At South Elgin, Morgan Seberger swished a late trey to force overtime, where Geneva scored 17 points, including the first six by Michaela Loebel. Janie McCloughan (13 points) led five players in double figures for the 4-1 Vikings in the Upstate Eight Conference crossover.

Burlington Central 69, Rock Falls 25: At Burlington, BC produced three double-digit scorers in the romp – Sam Pryor (17 points), Rebecca Gerke (12) and Alison Colby (11). The Rockets had seven 3-pointers in the game.

Glenbard North 42, Aurora Central Catholic 27: At Aurora, ACC finished 9 for 31 from the floor and fell to 3-2. Kalie Soris (nine points) and Natalie Droeske (seven) led the Chargers.

Sterling 2,652, Kaneland 2,511:
At Paone’s Blackhawk Lanes in Sterling, Christie Crews (523 series) and Dominique Lee (472) paced Kaneland. Crews’ 213 in the first game was the Knights’ individual high.
