ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Thanksgiving high school basketball tournaments featured plenty of local action on Saturday. The Auburn Knights defeated Pike (Indianapolis) in a 72-69 nailbiter, before taking care of Elgin Larkin 82-54 in the night session to win the first ever RPS 205 Tipoff Classic.

Boylan Catholic was the sight of a historic matchup. The Titans and Lutheran Crusaders met for the first time in either school's history in a non-conference tournament contest on Saturday night before a sellout crowd. Boylan built a double-digit lead in the first half before a Lutheran rally that sent the game to overtime. The Crusaders found the win column with a 67-63 OT victory.
