Senior guard Brock Burrell sank eight of Delavan High School's tournament-record 13 3-point field goals as the Panthers defeated Springfield Ursuline, 66-58, Thursday at the Williamsville Holiday Tournament.

Delavan (3-8 overall, 1-2 in pool play) held leads of 33-21 at halftime and 45-37 after three quarters. Burrell, who fell one short of the tourney mark for 3-pointers by an individual player, made three baskets from beyond the arc in the final period to help seal the win.

Jordan Zimmer added 19 points, eight in the fourth quarter, for the Panthers, who will face Divernon today in the consolation bracket fifth-place game. Ben Evelsizer had eight points.

Tremont 92, Havana 84: Sophomore Jeremy Pflederer scored eight points in overtime, all from the free-throw line, as Tremont (9-2, 2-1) netted 11 of its 13 points in the extra period from the foul stripe to beat Havana.

Pflederer finished with a game-high 27 points, 20 after halftime, for Tremont. Jake Szetela added 22 points for the Turks, who made 21 of 29 foul shots in the contest, including 11 of 14 in overtime. Jim Kuban and Tyler Martin chipped in 15 points each.

Tremont built leads of 39-32 by halftime and 57-48 by the end of the third quarter before Havana stormed back to tie the game at 79-79 at the end of regulation. The Turks, who will play Greenville in the fifth-place game today, also received 12 points from Michael Wiemer.

Warrensburg-Latham 66, Heyworth 38: Nick Law was the lone Heyworth player in double figures with 13 points as the Hornets (8-4, 2-1) fell behind early and could not recover in a winner's bracket semifinal loss to Warrensburg-Latham.

Nate Riordan had seven points for Heyworth, which trailed 19-8 after one quarter and 40-21 at halftime. The Hornets will play for third place today against the Pleasant Plains-Argenta-Oreana loser.

At Charleston

Mahomet-Seymour 52, Charleston 51: Jason Seaman recorded a double-double to lead Mahomet-Seymour over host Charleston in an overtime thriller at the Charleston Holiday Tournament.

Mahomet-Seymour (7-2) trailed 28-22 at intermission but battled back to cut the Charleston (8-3) lead to 38-37 after three quarters. The teams were tied at 46-46 at the end of regulation.

At Kankakee

Iroquois West 58, Peotone 45: A 20-point effort from Zack Timm helped Iroquois West (2-8) to a win over Peotone in the seventh-place game of the Kankakee Holiday Tournament.

The Raiders took an early 12-7 lead after the first quarter and had a 28-22 lead at halftime, shooting 60 percent from the field in the first half. Peotone rallied in the third quarter and trimmed the lead to 41-37, but couldn't catch Iroquois West in the final period. A key to the Raiders success was free-throw shooting, as they outscored Peotone 18-8 from the line in the game.

"We played better as the tourney progressed," said Iroquois West coach Shannon Anderson. "We gave ourselves a good opportunity to win with our post play."

Scott Dietz scored 15 points and pulled down 10 rebounds for the Raiders. Kale Shade added 14 points for Iroquois West.

At Macomb

Carthage 68, Illini Central 63 OT: Senior John Tracy scored 18 points but it wasn't enough as Illini Central (6-4) lost to Carthage (7-1) in overtime in the second round of the Macomb Tournament.

Reid Mills scored 14 points, Seth Lemme 11 and Anthony Rivera 10 for the Cougars.

Illini Central led through three quarters, 50-45, and then Carthage's defense took over and held the Cougars to just seven points and put the game into overtime at 57-57.

The Blueboys scored first, but the Cougars tied it again at 59-59 with 3:13 left. Carthage went up by two and held on for the victory.

At Monticello

St. Joseph-Ogden 39, Ridgeview 32: Ridgeview managed just eight points in the first half and the slow start cost it, as St. Joseph-Ogden (11-2) went on to defeat the Mustangs to take fifth place at the Monticello Tournament.

Junior guard Trevor Thrlik had a game-high 15 points to pace Ridgeview (3-8 overall and 1-3 in the tournament) and led the Mustangs with four rebounds. The low scoring affair set two tournament records, including fewest points in a game for both teams (old record 80) and fewest points by a winning team (old record 41).

Urbana Uni High 58, Tri-Point 45: Adam Moritz scored a game-high 19 points, including five 3-point baskets, to lead Tri-Point (3-11), but it wasn't enough as the Chargers fell to Urbana Uni High (8-4) in the seventh-place game.

Senior center Matt Malone added 12 points for Tri-Point and led the Chargers in rebounds with eight and steals with four. Senior Tyler Mylcraine scored six points for Tri-Point while Moritz also had six rebounds.

The game was tied 11-all after one quarter and Tri-Point trailed 28-23 at the half before Urbana outscored the Chargers 18-13 in the third quarter to take a 46-36 lead with one period to play.
