Golden Warriors fend off late rally by Dragons in opener
Sterling wins trap game
DIXON – Hoops fan or not, Admiral Ackbar would have easily identified the key to Sterling’s victory over Pekin on Thursday in the first round of the Dixon tournament.
The Golden Warriors used their signature trap to build a monster lead, then barely navigated the Dragons' trap to survive 50-44. Sterling draws Rochelle in a quarterfinal matchup and a Class 3A regional title-game rematch.
Sterling (7-8) led 42-26 after three periods before the Dragons’ full-court, trapping press forced eight turnovers in the fourth.
