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.

Giltner survived a last-second scare Thursday to advance to the CRC title game with a 34-32 win over Exeter-Milligan. The Timberwolves nearly spoiled the Hornets fun on the last play of the game when Jackson Beethe's half-court turnaround hit the rim and bounced away. Giltner will be on center stage of the annual CRC classic in York Friday, taking on No. 1-seed Shelby-Rising City in the 8:15 p.m. final, where the Hornets will be gunning for a second straight conference crown. Giltner has played in the finals the last three years.

Hornets advance to CRC semis

The Giltner boys advanced to the CRC semifinals with its 44-22 win over McCool Junction Wednesday night. The driving lane was open all night for Giltner while its defense toughened up its on-ball pressure, holding the Mustangs to 9 first half points.

The Hornets were led by Dayne Hinrichs with 19 points while Rody Lyon added 14. 

The No. 3 seed Hornets advance to the semifinals of the CRC tournament and will take on No. 2 Exeter-Milligan. The Timberwolves sport a 12-3 record on the season while the two teams have yet to square off this year. 

Giltner coach Jordan Ortmeier said after the McCool Junction win that Exeter-Milligan will be a tough test for the Hornets. 

"They're a great team -- very disiplined," Ortmeier said. "Every player on that team knows what they're supposed to do. That makes it tough. They always look for great shots and are always good defensively. We'll have our hands full."
