Schoolcraft tops Parchment

GALESBURG -- Schoolcraft's first-half defensive performance Tuesday night might not have been legendary, but it set the tone in the championship game of the Legends Basketball Tournament.

The Eagles held Parchment to 18 points through the first 16 minutes and cruised to a 54-37 victory in the inaugural holiday event.

"I tip my hat to (Schoolcraft) all the way," Parchment coach Larry Bailey said. "They outrebounded us, they outdefended us and they set the tone. They deserved to have the first-half lead."

The Eagles' swarming man-to-man pressue wreaked havoc on Parchment in the half-court, helping to force six consecutive missed shots during the early stages of the second quarter.

During that stretch, Schoolcraft ran off 10 unanswered points and never looked back.

"Our team defense is coming," Schoolcraft coach Greg Kragt said. "It's not there yet, but it's definitely something we concentrate on. It's starting to come a little bit and the guys are starting to understand the value of it."

Schoolcraft (4-1) missed its first three floor shots to start the game, but assumed a lead it would not relinquish on consecutive 3-point baskets by junior Omar Escamilla.

Escamilla drilled his third straight triple at the end of the 10-0 second-quarter scoring run, and his defensive work on Parchment sophomore Alex Wolf drew Kragt's praise.

"He's a little bit bigger (than Wolf) and he did a nice job during that stretch," Kragt said. "He's a very valuable player for us."

Parchment (3-4) got five points from sophomore Matt Chappell during a 9-2 run late in the third quarter, but was unable to draw any closer than 10 points for the balance of the contest.

Kragt's son, senior Drew Kragt, scored a team-high 12 points and grabbed six rebounds for Schoolcraft, while senior Andy Werkema scored nine of his 11 points during the second half.

Wolf scored a game-high 14 points for Parchment, which started three sophomores Tuesday.
