Jordan halts GSL boys’ season

An 11-17 season came to a close for the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team last week as the Panthers fell 78-47 to Section 2AA North top seed Jordan on Thursday, March 8.
However, GSL did make a little noise before bowing out of the postseason.
The Panthers won their 11th and final game, advancing to the subsection semifinal, by defeating Norwood Young America 64-47 in the playoff opener two nights earlier.
GSL won its final home game of the season, and avenged a 64-49 road loss to the Raiders on Jan. 20, by dominating their visitors nearly from start to finish.
The Panthers seized a 10-point lead on NYA midway through the first half and continued to lead the Raiders 34-26 at halftime behind 21 points from forward Kyle Christensen.
Christensen, playing in the final game on his home court, posted more than half of the GSL scoring with a season high 35 points in the triumph.
The victory set up another rematch as the Panthers traveled southeast to New Prague to take on the Hubmen.
Jordan defeated visiting GSL 60-41 to open the new year on Jan. 2. Unfortunately, Panthers/Hubmen II featured more of the same.
The subsection’s top seed led fourth-seeded GSL 37-28 at the break, but poured it on in the second half to win by 31 points.
Forward Gabe Roepke led the Panthers with 14 points in the game, while guard Dane Schwirtz scored nine points.
The loss brought an end to the high school careers of four seniors: Christensen, guard Alexia Sanchez and forwards Connor Kantack, Zach Herout and Nicola Luciani.
