PRINCETON — The eighth grade Junior Hubs bounced back from a one-point loss in the opening round to win its second game, but committed 26 team fouls in the third place game against Princeton as the Junior Tigers came back down the stretch for a 47-42 win over Rochelle in the Princeton Tournament on Sunday afternoon.

“The last few minutes of the game allowed them to gain ground on us through the bonus, which allowed them to catch us and win the game,” Rochelle head coach Kent Lodico said.
