Norsemen Basketball

The Norsemen basketball team kicked off their season at Sycamore High School, with the Thanksgiving Tournament. The boys started out slow, losing three of their first four games. The first was to Rockford Lutheran, the eventual champion of the tournament, by a score of 86 - 58. After Rockford Lutheran, they played Burlington Central, and the game went down to the wire. The Norsemen held a 2 point lead after the 3rd quarter, but they were outscored by the Rockets by 9 in the final period, taking a 58 – 51 loss. Jack Clausel led all scorers with 22 points, while Evan Schomer had 12 points and 7 rebounds. Will Clausel passed his way to 10 assists and 8 rebounds, a team high. All teams took Thursday off for Thanksgiving, but resumed action Friday. The team the Norsemen faced off against was the Dundee Crown Chargers. Again, the Norsemen held a lead in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t hold on, falling 57 – 52. Jack Clausel had 17 points to go along with 6 rebounds. Evan Schomer scored 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds, while Matt Eike had 9 points and 4 rebounds. After this 0 – 3 start, the Norsemen were looking to get their first win. They found themselves locked into a battle with Sandwich, but they went on a late run and pulled out a 60 – 53 win. Noah Nichols scored 11 points off the bench, while Jack Clausel had 17 points to go along with 15 rebounds. The Norsemen have more games coming up in the coming weeks, starting with the first home conference game against Somonauk on December 6th, then travel to Deerfield to play against Chicagoland Jewish, the team that the Norsemen played in the sectional final last year. The Norsemen are looking to pick up some wins in the coming weeks, and would love your support! Come cheer on the Norsemen!
