Varsity game summary
Schaumburg 56, Hinsdale Central 31
Wednesday, Dec. 26
Wheaton North's Bill Neibch Falcon Classic
First round

For the first time this season, the Hinsdale Central girls basketball team played man-to-man defense for an extended period of time Wednesday.
By the switch from their usual 1-2-2 zone in the second half, the Red Devils were behind by double digits in their 56-31 loss to Schaumburg in the opening round of Wheaton North’s Bill Neibch Falcon Classic.
The Red Devils (2-10) play in the consolation quarterfinals of the 16-team bracket at 1:30 p.m. Thursday against Elk Grove (3-9), which lost 71-48 Wednesday to top-seeded and undefeated Wheaton North (10-0).
No. 8 seed Schaumburg (9-6) has won six in a row.
“We went man the second half because I said, ‘I’m going to hold each one of your accountable (defensively). I’m going to know,’ ” Hinsdale Central coach Karen Persinger said. “I thought we did a really nice job and I actually started to hear their voices. They were communicating much better on the defensive end but then we got stagnant on the offensive end. Now we just need to put both ends together.”
Maddie Bokich had one of her best shooting games of the season with three threes for nine points. Sarah Cernugel had eight points and two threes and Maria Rivera and Maiwen Amegadjie each had four points.
Rivera also had eight rebounds and blocked two shots. Tina Rivera had six rebounds and a block, Kendall Butler added five rebounds and Cernugel and Tina Rivera each had three assists.
Hinsdale Central trailed 37-14 by halftime after the Saxons' stretch of 9-for-12 shooting that included five of their single-game season-high nine three-pointers for a 28-7 advantage. For the first half, Schaumburg made 14 of 30 shots, including 8 of 17 from three-point range.
“They shot extremely well form the three-point line. I think it was a combination (of that and our defense),” Persinger said. “It’s easy to be a good shooter when we’re slow on the rotation. Something that was such a strength for us at the start of the season with our communication and rotation has become a little flat. I decided I had to mix it up (defensively) and challenge them a little bit and held them accountable. I though the girls did a better job and did communicate. Now we just have to put together four quarters.”
The Saxons’ hot shooting streak helped them open the second quarter with a 13-0 run to build a 31-7 advantage. After the Red Devils had seven turnovers on their first 11 possessions of the period, Bokich ended the scoreless streak with a three 2:27 before halftime off a Cernugel pass and then nailed another three 53 seconds before halftime.
In the second half, the Red Devils closed to 39-18 in the third quarter and 47-26 after another Bokich three following a Cernugel three and inside basket by Amegadjie.
“At times, we’ had some really nice offensive sets and then we’d rest on defense,” Persinger said. “I thought that our second-half effort was a lot better. I thought it stemmed from the fact that they were communicating with each other on the defensive end.”
Speaking of defense, Schaumburg’s current winning streak has included limiting three opponents to 30 points or fewer. On Wednesday, the Saxons complemented that by equaling their single-game season high of eight threes in just the first half.
Ariana Doroskin (15 points) and reserve Alyssa Orozco (13 points) each had three threes. The other first-half threes came from Talia Torosian for her six points. Reserve Mady Vodicka had the last three with 4:09 left.
“Probably in our three-point shooting, just to have all three of our shooters to be going at once (our best half offensively),” Schaumburg coach Jackie Strauch said. “Sometimes you have one on and the other two aren’t. To have all of our shooters on at once is advantageous for us. That was a nice first half for us offensively and it allowed us, for this first game after Christmas, to get everyone in the game.”
The Saxons also allowed just nine offensive rebounds off the Red Devils' 29 missed shots. Schaumburg opened the game in a zone defense and later switched to man-to-man.
“(During the winning streak) I think we’re rebounding well on the defensive end. We’re collecting the ball mostly after one shot,” Strauch said. “And I think we can play all different kinds of defenses. We can go into zones. Sometimes we go into man and against certain teams, like St. Charles North (a 31-27 victory Dec. 18), we lived and died by the zone. We’re holding teams to low numbers.”
Schaumburg’s previous best of eight threes came in beating Elk Grove 47-43 Nov. 27. Last season, the Red Devils defeated the Grenadiers 50-41 in the Falcon Classic’s consolation championship game for ninth place overall.

Varsity game summary
Hinsdale Central 44, Proviso West 41
Friday, Dec. 14

A great start and a composed finish combined to give the Hinsdale Central girls basketball team its first West Suburban Conference Silver Division victory Friday.
The Red Devils withstood the pressure of the final minute to close out a 44-41 victory at Proviso West.
Sarah Cernugel had 13 points with five of the Red Devils’ seven three-pointers. Maddie Bokich, Kendall Butler and Maria Rivera each had eight points and Maiwen Amegadjie added five.
Rivera made her one-and-bonus free throw with 1.6 seconds left for the final point. The second attempt missed but time expired as Proviso West’s Josylin Simmons-Doxie chased the rebound near the sidelines and was unable to muster a final shot.
In the Red Devils’ first victory Nov. 24, Rivera sank two free throws with 17.6 seconds for the final points in a 43-41 victory over St. Edward.
Leading 40-31 entering the fourth quarter Friday, the Red Devils had the margin cut to 43-41 after Simmons-Doxie’s conventional three-point play with 26.6 seconds left.
The Panthers' Ariana Dunlap stole the ball back with 16 seconds, but Asia Flowers’s could not convert her driving shot from the right of the lane off the backboard.
Cernugel got the rebound and was fouled. From there, the Red Devils withstood two more fouls off inbounds passes before Rivera went to the line after receiving the seventh foul of the half.
The Red Devils opened with one of their best offensive quarters of the season to take a 20-5 lead. Bokich had seven points in the quarter, including her three, and Butler and Amegadjie each had six points.
Simmons-Doxie had 23 points, 16 in the second half with four of her five threes.

At Hinsdale South's Brenda Whitesell Invitational
(7th-place game)

The Hinsdale Central girls basketball team’s strong start and composure at the end combined for a great result Saturday.
The Red Devils posted their first victory of the season by edging St. Edward 43-41 in the seventh-place game of Hinsdale South’s Brenda Whitesell Invitational.
Hinsdale Central (1-3) led several times during the game but fell behind 41-38 with 1:29 left before coming through down the stretch.
With the game tied 41-41, sophomore Maria Howell rebounded Sarah Cernugel’s missed three-pointer, was fouled and made two free throws with 17.6 seconds.
St. Edward’s Madeline Ellsworth attempted a three a few steps behind the top of the key with pressure from Cernugel and the shot fell short and out of bounds to the Red Devils, who ran out the final 1.2 seconds.
Cernugel led the Red Devils with 11 points and three threes. Junior Kendall Butler had nine points and 10 rebounds, Rivera and senior Tina Rivera each had six points and six rebounds, junior Anna Howell notched five points on two big third-quarter baskets, including a three and senior Maddie Bokich had four points, six rebounds and three assists.
Only six seconds after a Red Devils’ timeout with 1:19 left, Cernugel became open in the right corner and took a pass from Bokich to connect on her third three-pointer to tie the game. Cernugel then deflected a St. Edward pass that Maria Rivera intercepted in the lane with 45 seconds.
Butler’s first three of the season put the Red Devils ahead 38-37 with 4:24 remaining. The Red Devils then went scoreless their next five possessions and the Green Wave for nearly four minutes, which included two of Tina Rivera’s three blocks on back-to-back possessions.
Hinsdale Central scored the last five points of the first quarter to lead 9-5 and improved the margin to 15-8 early in the second quarter on baskets by Butler to the left of the lane and Bokich and Maria Rivera inside. Two baskets by reserve guard Mia Castro put St. Edward ahead 22-21 at the half.
Back-to-back threes and later back-to-back field goals by Cernugel and Howell had the Red Devils back ahead 33-27 but a basket and three by Ellsworth cut the lead to 33-32 entering the fourth quarter.
Ellsworth had 17 points with one three. Castro and Samantha Ottinger (2 threes) had six points apiece.
Like the Red Devils, St. Edward is starting pretty much anew after graduating nine seniors. The Green Wave again is playing up in Class 3A this season after taking third in 2A in 2017.
