E-Rabs win Galesburg MLK tournament

GALESBURG – The East E-Rabs went 4-1 to win the Galesburg MLK tournament, improving the team’s overall record to 14-7.

East, which is tied for third in the NIC-10 race at 6-2, won four games by blowout margins over Galesburg, Dunlap, Maine South and Minooka. Only a two-point loss to Peoria Saturday morning kept the E-Rabs from going undefeated.

Sha’den Clanton, Scott Gowan and Chris Burnell were all named to the all-tournament team and Devontae Sims had a strong case to be on the team as well.

Gowan led East with 69 points over the five games, Burnell added 67, Sims scored 60 and Clanton 57.

The E-Rabs are back in action Friday when they host Freeport.
