A slow start turned into a loss for the Silver Streaks boys Saturday despite a late rally that left the game tied with three-minutes to go. The Streaks lost by one to DeKalb at the Rock Falls Shootout 50-49, snapping a four-game winning streak. The player the Streaks figured would give them trouble, 6-foot-7 junior Andre Harris, led all scorers with 19 points. With no players in double figures for the Streaks, Aslan Butler and Lamont Ross each scored eight.
