Another tip-in to win

Bishop Luers's DeShaun Thomas picked up his second buzzer-beating tip-in to win a basketball game in eight days. South Side held Thomas to just 20 points and 15 rebounds, but he buried the Archers when it counted to win the SportONE SAC Holiday Tournament championship. Read the game story by News-Sentinel Sports reporter Nick West on the Prep Sports Page at

The girls championship game kicked off the night round of the tournament with a bang for the standing-room-only crowd at Wayne High School. Elmmhurst and South Side played a close game with Elmhurst pulling out a two-point win to claim its first SAC tournament championship. Once again Nick West did a great job of telling the story.

South Side's Normalyn Smith buries her face in her hands after a referee took away her chance to tie Elmhurst in Saturday's SportONE SAC Holiday Tournament championship game with less than 10 seconds remaining. Down by three point, Smith drove the lane, scored and drew a foul, but the referee ruled the foul happened on the floor. Elmhurst held on to beat the Archers 60-58.
