BOYS BASKETBALL: Cissna Park holds off Bishop

By Mason Schweizer

KANKAKEE — After nearly an hour on a bus on its way to Bishop McNamara for Saturday afternoon hoops action, Cissna Park’s boys basketball team took a while to get warmed up, as was indicated by an early 15-2 Irish run in the first quarter.

But the Timberwolves heated up in the second on three Malaki Verkler baskets and rode the hot hand of Ian Rogers in the third quarter to build a lead as large as 14 points as Cissna Park held off a ferocious Irish 1-2-2 half-court trap in the fourth quarter and made six big free-throws late to leave with a 63-53 victory.
