ARCOLA BOYS' BASKETBALL
The Purple Riders (10-7) are hitting their stride, winning twice to extend their winning streak to seven games. Senior Brett Lindenmeyer had five of the team's nine three-pointers in a win against Shiloh and scored a game-high 19 points in a 54-44 victory against Villa Grove.
URBANA UNI GIRLS' BASKETBALL
The Illineks (18-3) seemed destined for their first 20-win season thanks to a three-win week where two decisions were settled by no more than 10 points. Jamie Blue averaged nearly 22 points a game for the week, and Emma Hoyer and Jaki Vipond each averaged more than 10.
