Huskies silence Duke Dome

York wanted to make sure, at least from the tip, that Aurora’s Baylor Scheierman didn’t go off on the Dukes. That was good news for Cade Reichardt.
The fellow senior dropped 14 of his 16 total points in the opening quarter during Aurora’s 63-42 rout of the defending Class B champion York squad inside the Duke Dome Friday night.

Lady Huskies scrap for first win over York

In many ways, a monkey was lifted off Aurora’s back Friday night in York.
The Lady Huskies played solid defense all night and when it mattered most, stepped to the free-throw line with confidence to help secure the first win of the season.
Aurora fended off York late and made enough free throws to get the team’s first win 41-35 inside the Duke Dome after starting the season 0-4.

Dave’s holiday grab bag

 Ho! Ho! Ho!
What do you know boys and girls? It that time once again, time for me to spread my Christmas joy with special, unique and sometimes compelling presents to all of my favorite (and not so favorite) sports personalities, and of course batteries are included. While some have been on the good list all year long, others are stuck on the naughty list with no chance at redemption.
Here goes:
To the Aurora Husky football team, competition.
To Maurice Washington, 25 more pounds of pure muscle. My sympathy to opposing defenses.
To Ryan Held, a little less enthusiasm.
To Callie Schwzenbach, a little more enthusiasm.
To Bill Moos, the names of a few good basketball coaches looking for work (including Fred Hoiberg and Tyronn Lue). On stand-by just in case.
To the Dallas Cowboys, a victory in Atlanta on Feb. 3.
To Urban Meyer and Bill Snyder, comfy recliners, warm furry blankets and cups of hot steaming cocoa.

Aurora bounces York at home

An 11-0 run to end the first half seemingly closed out any chance York had to get the best of the visiting Huskies as Aurora picked up a 63-42 win at the Duke Dome Friday night to move to 5-0 on the year. 

Cade Reichardt was unstoppable in the first quarter for the Huskies, scoring 14 of his 16 points in the opening stanza. 

Baylor Scheierman took over from there, scoring 22 of his 26 points after the first quarter, including eight points in the 11-0 rally that ended the first half.

Scheierman and Reichardt were Aurora's two leading scorers as the starters were pulled from the game midway through the fourth quarter. 

Aurora will play its first home game of the season Tuesday night as Norris comes to town with a 6 p.m. tip.
