Your move, Mr. Moos

 When some unsubstantiated rumors leaked out about NU Athletic Director Bill Moos a week ago, not only was I surprised, but whatever those stories were, I didn’t believe them for a minute.
In Bill I trust.
I’ve listened to him long enough on the radio and TV, and I’ve seen him in person interact with others, to be fairly certain that this negativity was either blown way out of proportion, or simply untrue.
I don’t envy him, either. In his position, as the head of a university sports staff, there’s bound to be people working under him who don’t always see eye-to-eye on some of the issues, people who may take it a step further to try to undermine him.
I don’t envy him for another reason, too. At the rate it’s going, he’s going to have to decide whether to fire another coach, his fifth since taking the job, or sit back and let Tim Miles go forward, giving him a chance to redeem himself next season.

Huskies fend off game Waverly squad

The All-Class No. 10 Aurora Huskies made it clear throughout the night -- they wanted to get the ball inside. 

Husky seniors Nick Hutsell and Baylor Scheierman combined for 43 points in Aurora's 53-45 win over the Vikings at home Friday night. 

Waverly was fresh off a 51-48 overtime victory over Seward the night before, but the Vikings couldn't pull its second Class B upset in as many nights. 

Hutsell was 9 of 11 shooting Friday night and totaled 21 points, right behind Scheierman with 22. The Huskies had leads of 13-10, 25-20 and 45-33 at the end of each quarter. 

The Huskies will be in action again Saturday on the road at Lexington.

No. 1 Waverly powers past Aurora

It was tough sledding for the Aurora girls basketball team as the Lady Huskies found it tough to move the ball around against a swarming Waverly defense as the Class B No. 1 Vikings earned a 53-28 win Friday night in Aurora. 

Though the Lady Husky defense was stiff early on, holding Waverly to nine first quarter points, the Vikings got going in the second to take a 24-8 lead to the half. 

Aurora was led in scoring by Maya Nachtigal and Jaylee Schuster with seven points apiece. 

The Lady Huskies will be in action again Saturday on the road at Lexington.

Huskies 4-peat as CC champs

No one in the Central Conference had ever won the boys basketball tournament three years in a row until Aurora accomplished the feat in 2018. The Huskies added on to that mark Saturday night in a raucous Duke Dome. 

Aurora weathered a late York storm to defeat the Dukes 61-58 to win its fourth consecutive Central Conference tournament crown. 

The Huskies led 40-33 entering the fourth quarter and built a lead as big as nine early on. As the game got more physical late and the fouls continued to rack up on both sides, Cade Reichardt, Baylor Scheierman and others went to the line to try and ice the game for Aurora. 

Scheierman, who played the final 5:40 of the game with four fouls, was continually in and out of the lineup down the stretch.

Kluck earns conference gold

Aurora's Trevor Kluck was one of four Aurora wrestlers to make the finals Saturday at the Central Conference tournament in Schuyler Saturday, but he was the only one of those to earn first place honors. 

The Husky sophomore did what was necessary, suffocating his opponent and picking up a 7-0 decision victory in the process to win the 132-pound division. 

Aurora's other three finalists -- Caden Svoboda at 106, Seth Wonch at 145 and Carter Pursley at 152 -- each lost their finals matches in a variety of ways. 

Pursley's was arguably the toughest, losing his match with just seconds remaining in the overtime period. 

Aurora finished fifth in the team race with 140 points while Columbus Lakeview earned top team honors.

Hornets come oh, so close

Giltner fought back from a 12-point second-half deficit and had a shot at the buzzer to win its second straight CRC crown, but it just wouldn't fall.

Dane Hinrichs' shot and putback at the buzzer both missed the mark at the York City Auditorium, leaving the Hornets on the wrong end of a 47-46 score in a nail-biter with No. 1-seed Shelby-Rising City. It was the second straight night of dramatic CRC finishes for the orange and black, which advanced to a third straight title game with a close win over Exeter-Milligan in the semis.

Watch this week's ANR for complete CRC tournament coverage.

Scheierman hits game-winner in 2OT

After 40 minutes of basketball, Aurora's Baylor Scheierman called game. 

The Husky senior went off for a career-high 38 points, including the game-winning three-pointer in Aurora's 66-63 win over Seward in double overtime of the Central Conference semifinal matchup at York High School Friday night. 

The game had the chances of going to a third overtime as Scheierman brought the ball up the floor, nearly dribbled it off his knee for a turnover, but collected himself in time to pull up from the left wing and tickle the twine with 1.2 seconds left on the clock, the officials decided. A last second heave from 3/4 court from Seward was closer than many Husky fans would have wanted, but was no good. 

Aurora trailed by as many as 12 in the second half before gunning back within striking distance, down five heading to the fourth. Aurora never led in regulation as its first lead came off two Scheierman free throws with 2:01 left in the first overtime.
