IL Boys 3A Championship game: Peoria 72, North Chicago 64

Posted on March 18, 2012. Filed under: Basketball | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |


March 15, 2012

PEORIA— The one two punch of North Chicago, Aaron Simpson and JaVairius Amos-Mays just wasn’t enough to win the Class 3A State title, as Peoria wins 72-67.

“That (a state championship) would have been a good accomplishment, but me and the other seniors did a great job leading the team down here and preparing the younger guys for the future,” Simpson said.

North Chicago would not let Peoria Central pull away, and there were times during its second-half comeback attempt Simpson let Amos-Mays (17 points, eight rebounds) do his thing, but Simpson was able to knock down his season average of 26 in the contest.

“They’ve seen what Simpson did with the team and the leadership he showed,” North Chicago coach Gerald Coleman said. “They looked up to him and learned from him. They saw what it was like to play at a high level, and we look forward to getting ready for the summer and trying to come back down here again.”

Peoria was led by Aldonis Foote, who had 17 points, followed by Trey Kellum who added 14.

Congratulation to Peoria Central on winning the 2012 Boys 3A State title.

IL Boys 3A semifinals: Lanphier vs North Chicago

Posted on March 16, 2012. Filed under: Basketball | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

March 15, 2012

PEORIA – In the first of four State semifinal games, it was North Chicago grabbing the victory over Lanphier (Springfield) 57-52 in Peoria, IL – on the campus of Bradley University. North Chicago did enough to defeat Springfield Lanphier on Friday afternoon at Carver Arena and advance to the Class 3A state finals Saturday afternoon at 2 pm against the winner of Hillcrest / Peoria up next.

The Lions (28-4) controlled the tempo in the first half and received a big performance from their sixth man, T.J. Davis, who sparked the team with a  second quarter 13-2 run and a 45-34 lead.

Davis, who finished with 15 points, made his first six shots and accounted for 11 points, five steals and three assists in the first half.

“I came off the bench and gave my team a spark,” Davis said.

Simply put, Lanpheir was able to play their style of play, crazy and fast pace in the first half, led by the play of 5-8 guard, T.J. Davis, who has 14 points and is 6 of 7 from the field and perfect from downtown (2-2). But as stated, the second half, the Warhawks slowed the tempo and gain all of the momentum, including 25-13 advantage of second chance shots. But the Warhawks (25-6) threw several defensive zones at Lions (28-4) that kept them off guard and erased an 11-point deficit right before the half.

“They didn’t adjust very well to our zone defense,” North Chicago coach Gerald Coleman said.

The Warhawks’ limited the Lions to 2-for-12 shooting in the third and embarked on a 19-2 run for a 57-51 lead.

North Chicago were led by two understudies of Aaron Simpson, who struggled: Kevante Curry who scored 16 points and 11 boards, and Kurt Hall, who added 12 points and 16 boards. Illinois-State recruit Simpson shot 4-for-20 from the floor and finished with 14 points.

“He’s a superstar, but we have some players that can help him,” Hall said.

Simpson averages 26.3 points per game.
