BOYS BASKETBALL

The Galesburg Silver Streaks split a pair of games in their own Thanksgiving tournament Friday, routing East Peoria in the morning game 73-38, but losing in a much closer affair against Limestone in the nightcap 79-68. The Rockets are now 4-0 on the young season, while the Streaks are 2-1. Limestone's win came despite coach Eddie Matthews being ejected toward the end of the first quarter after picking up a pair of technical fouls. The Streaks' Grant Gibson led his teammates, scoring 24 points in each game. The Streaks play twice again Saturday, starting against Rantoul with pre-game around 9:55am on WGIL and WGIL.com, and again Saturday starting around 7:45 on WGIL and WGIL.com versus Peoria Notre Dame.
