HARVARD – The Burlington Central boys basketball team earned a Big Northern Conference East road win, topping Harvard on Friday, 60-47.

Sean Fitzgerald scored 15 points and Duncan Ozburn added 14 points to pace the Rockets (10-4, 2-1 Big Northern Conference East).

“I thought we played pretty well,” Central coach Brett Porto said. “I would have liked to see us be a little bit better decision-makers in the fourth quarter. … But other than that, we moved the ball pretty well and were able to pressure the ball pretty nice and create some quick buckets [in transition]. Overall, it was a pretty good effort for us.”

The Rockets led, 35-27, at halftime.


Buffalo Grove Quad: Geneva defeated Proviso West and Buffalo Grove but fell to Grant. The Vikings’ Austin Chaon (170 pounds) and Alex Crowe (160 pounds) had the lone Geneva wins in the Grant match.

Richmond-Burton Quad: Kaneland defeated Richmond-Burton and Woodstock but lost to Mundelein. 

Matthew Redman (126 pounds), Austin Parks (160) and Tom Price (170) won two matches apiece for Kaneland.
