Local roundup: Roby's double-double can't help Dukes beat Cavs

Freshman Isaiah Roby posted his second straight double-double, but his Dixon Dukes couldn’t pull the upset of LaSalle-Peru, falling 77-57 on Friday at Lancaster Gym.

Roby scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Cal Jarrett added 21 and seven, respectively, for the Dukes (3-20, 1-7 Northern Illinois Big 12 West).

Jens Soderholm scored 25 points for the Cavs (14-8, 8-0), but Dixon coach Jason Mead was pleased with his Dukes forcing a high degree of difficulty.

Dixon trailed just 56-45 entering the fourth period, and will get another shot at the Cavs on Feb. 25 in the Class 3A Rock Falls Regional.

Ottawa 41, Sterling 27: The Pirates grabbed a 16-4 lead after one period of a NIB-12 West matchup at Kingman Gym.

John Carroll paced Ottawa (19-4, 7-1) with 17 points. Alex Soriano scored eight for Sterling (9-16, 3-5), which held Ottawa to four second-quarter points, but only scored six.

The Warriors shot 8-for-43 from the field (18.6 percent). The Pirates were 17-for-44 (38 percent).
