2015 Team & Individual stat leaders

Rockridge 3-peats
It was a scene from a movie here at Western Hall for game 26 of the 70th annual Macomb Western Holiday Tournament. Pittsfield, the #4 seed, entered the game off of a solid win against Liberty. While Rockridge, seeded first, came into the contest off of a victory over Monmouth-Roseville. The Rockets, looking to 3-peat, kept the pressure on and the intensity sky-high levels throughout. They would eventually emerge the champion, defeating Pittsfield 50-48.(more-->)

Liberty defeats Monmouth-Roseville to take 3rd
The Liberty Eagles overcame a slow start to beat the Monmouth-Roseville Titans 65-56 to capture the third place trophy. 
The Titans had opened up a 13 point first half before Liberty hit its stride and never looked back. 
Liberty shot 57 percent from the field in the second half while M-R could only hit 24 percent of their shots. 

Lewistown successful in ousting Macomb for 5th
Too little too late. Macomb started to play the basketball that we saw from them this morning in the fourth quarter but it couldn't get them the win. They fell to Lewistown 49-36 in the 5th place game of the 70th annual Macomb Western Holiday tournament. Although they did a good job staying out of foul trouble, the Bombers' defense was pores as they gave up too many good looks for the Indians to pass up. (more-->)

Monmouth-Roseville falls in thriller with Rockridge
The West Hancock Titans take home the Consolation Championship Trophy with a 49-36 win over the Farmington Farmers.  
The big difference in the game was the shooting accuracy of the two teams.  West Hancock made 51 percent of their shots while Farmington shot just 29 percent.(

Pittsfield Hands Liberty their first loss of the year
Liberty was perfect in the record book until the final horn of the 2:30 game here at Western Hall for game 22 of the 70th annual Macomb Western Holiday Tournament. Brad Tomhave's Saukee squad was able to knock off the number one seed 59-48.

Free throws were a major factor in this one as Pittsfield hit 26/33 to Liberty's 12/16. Fouls were about even but the Saukees took to the stripe more often than the Eagles. From the floor, Liberty shot 48.6% while Pittsfield hit just 37.5%. 16 of Pittsfield's points came from the bench, compared to just 5 from the Eagles.
A fast paced, high intensity game with 3 lead changes was the story out of LeRoy A. Ufkes Court. (

Monmouth-Roseville falls in thriller with Rockridge
The intensity level was cranked up about ten notches in the first semifinal game between two-time defending champion Rockridge and Monmouth-Roseville.  
Rockridge kept its hopes of a threepeat alive with a 50-47 win over M-R.  
Gentry Whiteman led the Rockets charge with 23 points.  Carson Frakes pulled down seven rebounds in the win.  
Jared Kirby and Sam Gillen each scored 12 to lead the M-R Titans.  Kirby also pulled down 11 rebounds. (

Lewistown advances to 5th place contest
Another day another 9 AM game, and another example of the team who comes out awake in the first half of the 9 AM game taking the contest as Lewistown defeats Illini West 62-55. Illini West came back with a run at the end of the fourth quarter of the game but couldn't regain the lead. Illini West fired up 15 3-balls in the 2nd half but only could convert on 5 of them. With the help of Will LaGrande's rebounding skills, the Indians were able to advance to the 5th place game (more-->)

Liberty remains undefeated after thriller
It was a tale of two halves. The Illini Bluffs Tigers took it to Liberty in the first half, leading the Eagles by as many nine points. 
But, Liberty hit its stride in the second half and defeated Illini Bluffs 64-56.

The lead changed hands 6 times in the competition and the game was tied 5 times. Liberty's largest lead was 9 while Illini Bluff's largest was 11.(more-->)
