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.
