ROCHELLE — The Hubs sure would have liked to win on Friday night for several reasons. They were at home, it was the final game of the regular season and it was Senior Night, but the mood around Rochelle Township High School after Rochelle’s 69-66 loss to the Knights couldn’t have been more positive.

“The only game that we care about is coming up on Tuesday,” said senior guard and Friday night’s leading scorer, Matt Rosenwinkel. “Sure we would have liked to win, but tonight was just a tune-up game.”

Kaneland started the game winning the tipoff and putting points on the scoreboard first, but it was Rochelle that jumped out to an 18-9 first quarter lead.

Five seniors made the start for Rochelle, but Grant Prusator wasn’t in the line-up as he was sitting out with an injured hip. Despite not having the high-scoring guard in action, Luke Manning, Rosenwinkel, Kole Smart, Kevin Stevens and Jeff Helfrich all took to the court and stood their ground.
