The Boylan boys basketball team topped Lutheran 82-62 in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday in a highly-anticipated Rockford matchup in the Jefferson MLK Holiday Tournament.
The Titans are currently the top team in the NIC-10, while the Crusaders sit in the top five of the Big Northern West. These teams met at Lutheran last year during the Thanksgiving tournament season, with the Crusaders winning that matchup in overtime. Boylan returned the favor on neutral territory.
The tournament continues on Monday with Boylan facing Peoria Manual in the morning session, followed by Geneva at night. Lutheran has games against Belvidere and and Belvidere North.
