Dec. 29 results


Class A

  • Day game: Stanford Olympia won over Sherrard 69-59.

This was a rematch of last year's third-place game at the Holiday Classic. Mount Pulaski started the game on an 11-0 run.

IVC hit two 3-pointers on two straight possessions early in the fourth quarter to extend their lead and hit just enough free throws down the stretch to secure the win.

Hartem answered with a couple of quick baskets of their own in the fourth to close the gap but were unable to capitalize on their double-bonus free throws.

Hartsburg-Emden won over Addison Driscoll for seventh place.

Lincoln plays Rockford Jefferson on Thursday at 1:30 at the Shirk Center for third place.
