ROCKFORD (WREX) -

The Auburn Knights and Jefferson J-Hawks took care of business the day before Thanksgiving, earning victories in this year's RPS 205 Tip-Off Classic.

Auburn enjoyed the comforts of their home gym on Wednesday, beating Hollywood McArthur (Florida), 59-45. Terry Ford paced the Knights with 19 points.

Jefferson took Proviso West down to the wire in the first game of the day, but prevailed in a 62-58 victory. Quillen Dixon's go-ahead three in the closing minutes proved to be enough for the J-Hawks.
