Sangamon Valley Conference Tournament

Hilltoppers take second straight league crown

FITHIAN — The drive from Danville to Indianapolis is about 11/2 hours long.

For Schlarman sophomore Anaya Peoples and Oakwood freshman Katelyn Young, the back-and-forth trips to play for AAU team Indianapolis Best Choice meant plenty of time for each to make a new friend when Young joined the team last summer.

To Young, Peoples’ likability is unimpeachable.

Thursday's highlights: Cross' late shot lifts Urbana

In boys’ basketball

Villa Grove/Heritage 62, Judah Christian 56. Jared Stevens scored 14 points and Connor Wienke had 13 as the Hawks (11-12) dispatched Judah. The Tribe (10-11) was led by Cade Chitty (19 points) and Terrell Helm (12 points).
