Maroons stumble against Mt. Carmel, lose 56-42
Not following the gameplan proved costly for Robinson High School's boys' basketball team Tuesday night.

The Maroons were unable to execute what they wanted to and the end result was a 56-42 loss to an undefeated Mt. Carmel team in a non-conference contest.

"The bottom line is we have to follow directions," RHS head coach Mack Thompson said. "We wanted to play 75 percent of the game on offense by working the ball around until we found an opening. Instead, we were making one or two passes and chucking up a shot. We were playing right into their hands."

The Lady Panthers grabbed an early lead, then pulled away in the second half for a 51-29 victory over Dieterich in a non-conference contest.

Maroons score LIC win over Olney, 72-46
The conference and home schedule couldn't have started much better for Robinson High School's boys' basketball team.

The Maroons were dominant from virtually start to finish in their home and Little Illini Conference opener Friday (Dec. 2) and rolled to a 72-46 victory over visiting Olney.

"We played well in the first quarter, then we had some bad combinations out there due to foul trouble and gave up 19 points in the second quarter," RHS head coach Mack Thompson said. "But, we came back in the third quarter and early in the fourth and we played really good defense. We went to a (1-3-1) zone and I think that threw them off. We wanted to work on that and see what we could do and the kids did a good job with it."

More than a half-dozen Robinson High School wrestlers placed among the top six in their respective weight classes, including five in the top four at Saturday (Dec. 3)'s Lawrence County Tournament.

"I am so proud to be these kids' coach. They work very hard and represent very well what high school athletics should be about."
