Huskies eliminated with 4th quarter drought

Although Aurora and Bennington entered the fourth quarter tied at 37, one team forged ahead -- Bennington -- while the Huskies struggled to score. 

The No. 4 Huskies' season came to a close in a 55-45 decision to the No. 5 Badgers Thursday in the Class B state tournament at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln. The Badgers outscored Aurora 18-8 in the fourth to win it, while Aurora went over four minutes without a score. 

Baylor Scheierman led the Huskies with 22 points while Jayden Herzberg added 12. Herzberg, along with Henry Penner, Ian Boerkircher, Lukas Pohlmann and Caden Schuster played their last game as Huskies. Aurora ends the year with a 22-5 record.
