CARPENTERSVILLE – St. Charles North closed the Dundee-Crown girls basketball tournament with a 63-53 victory Monday against Naperville Central.
While Nichole Davidson had another strong game with 22 points and nine rebounds to pace the North Stars, a pair of teammates spelled her down the stretch as the Redhawks threw some gimmick defenses at Davidson.
Kyla Helsel contributed 11 points and two assists, while Sam Novak swished three 3-pointers.
“A couple girls stepped up in that second half to help us pull out that victory,” said North coach Sean Masoncup, whose team led by 11 at the break.
Winners of two of its past three games, North is off until Jan. 10 when it visits Upstate Eight Conference River Division rival Geneva.
“It’s been nuts,” Masoncup said, “so we need a little break.”

Shelby Holt (12 points) and Sam Pryor (11) finished in double figures for the 11-2 Rockets. Maine South led, 30-29, after three quarters.
