SYCAMORE THANKSGIVING TOURNAMENT
Boys Basketball-Size, experience help net Dundee-Crown Strombom title over Burlington Central
Dundee-Crown's scouting report for Burlington Central was pretty straight forward coming into Saturday night's championship game of Sycamore's Strombom Holiday Tournament.
"He's only averaging like 35," Dundee-Crown coach Lance Huber said of Burlington Central senior Patrick Mayfield. "We thought if we could keep him under wraps we'd have a good chance and it worked out well for us."
Mayfield still scored 23 points including five 3-point baskets. But after scoring 33 and 42 points earlier in the tournament, 23 felt like a win.
Jordan Hairston, one of five seniors in Dundee-Crown's veteran lineup, had the primary responsibility for Mayfield, and he got plenty of help from his teammates if Mayfield ever found an opening.
The result was a 64-52 tournament championship for the Chargers over their future fellow Fox Valley Conference member.
