Wochner nails seven 3-pointers but Hampton still loses

Hampton freshman guard Cain Wochner was living beyond the arc Monday night in the first game of the boys Kenesaw Holiday Tournament, nailing seven triples on his way to scoring a team-leading 22 points. But that wasn't enough as the Hawks fell to Harvard 42-36 in a tight contest down the stretch. Hampton will play on Tuesday afternoon around 3:45 p.m. in the boys consolation game against the loser of Kenesaw and Wilcox-Hildreth. For a more detailed story of the game to see how Harvard defended Hampton to cause problems as well as thoughts on the game from first-year head coach Sam Newmyer, grab an issue of the News-Register on Wednesday.

Christmas wish lists


Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s nearly Christmas!
We hope all you nice (and naughty) Husker fans have a very Merry Christmas, and that your red stockings will be full of goodies and special Big Red presents tomorrow morning.
As for me, I think I’ve had my fill, thank you very much. A new football coach in Lincoln and all the recent drama is just a little more than even I can handle.
Anyway, I’ve made my list, I’ve checked it twice, so now it’s time for this Santa to start handing out extra special gifts for 2014:
To Tim Miles, a rematch with Creighton in the NCAA Tournament, and no more games versus Incarnate Word. Seriously.
To Jamal Turner, a full recovery and an All-Big Ten senior season.
To Michael Rose, a full recovery and an All-Big Ten sophomore season.
To the Kansas City Royals, two more runs in game seven.
To Tommy Armstrong and the rest of the quarterbacks, a cliff notes version of Mike Riley’s playbook.

York nails nine 3s to down Lady Huskies

York placed four players in double figures and hit nine shots from beyond the arc Friday night to take a hard-fought 54-37 home court win over Aurora.
The final score is not, however, indicative of how close the game was for much of the contest, the Huskies trailing by just seven (39-32) near the end of quarter number three.
