The Ladue Lady Rams had dedicated supporters rooting them on Monday night.
There’s a very good reason why Reed School fourth grade teacher Karla Rigdon skipped grading papers and spent the evening cheering for the Ladue High Rams’ basketball team. A real simple reason for certain. Seems that star guard senior Kate Holloway is a Cadet teacher in her class. Ladue seniors get a chance to go into the classroom to see if a future in teaching might suit them. Frankly, Holloway adores her grade schoolers quite a bit. She put on the chalk board a schedule of home games in the new year. The students voted to attend Monday night’s game with the Summit Falcons. Armed with Skittles, Ropes, Twix, Laughy Taffy, bags of popcorn and canned soda, 15 fourth graders sat in the front rows of the bleachers and cheered heartily for No…

Christie Bergesh has 18 for Central. Rams hold on for two-point win.
Over the holiday break, the Ladue girls’ basketball team was a player short. Junior Lizzie Greenberg was vacationing in sunny Mexico with her family. Trip over, the 5-foot-10 forward has returned with determination and purpose. She played her heart out in a game the Rams eeked out over Parkway Central Tuesday night at home, 47-45. Greenberg led Ladue with 14 big points, most coming after the break. The game almost ended in a controversial dispute. With 1.3 left on the game clock, the referee under the basket handed the ball to Greenberg who dropped in the first of two free throws. Two ref’s were conferring at mid-court and they tried to wave off the free throw. After a long dispute, they said the first attempt counted. Greenberg missed the…

Rams get off to early lead, then fall to CBC in the D.C. Wilcutt Tournament semifinals, 78-57.
The Ladue Rams really wanted to beat the CBC Cadets on the Cadets' own floor in their own tournament. “I really think we can do it,” said assistant coach Todd Basler, prior to tipoff in the semifinals of the D.C. Wilcutt Invitational Wednesday night. For a while, Basler’s prediction was looking pretty good. The Cadets raced out to a 7-2 lead, allowing Ladue back into the game and confident visiting squad regained the lead and led at the end of the first quarter 16-9. In the second quarter, the Cadets steadily took control of the game, opening up a 26-18 lead and at halftime it was CBC 34, Ladue 24. By the time veteran coach Bob McCormack had cleared his bench, his Cadets won convincingly, 78-57. CBC plays Lutheran North in Friday’s 8 p.m …

Senior Darrion Harris had 15 points and 3 three-pointers in Warriors’ grind-it-out 43-36 win over Rams.
Even though his team fell behind by 10 points during the opening stages of Wednesday’s varsity basketball game against Ladue, Whitfield boys basketball coach Mike Potsou wasn’t concerned about his Warriors' ability to rally. The coach didn’t yell or even seem to raise his voice. He simply called timeout and pulled the Warriors together to regroup. “I don’t do a lot of ‘rah-rah’-type speeches,” Potsou said. “We just talked about what we weren’t doing right, and what we needed to do better.” And that simple talk led to a brilliant charge by the Warriors, that quickly led to them regaining the lead, and eventually led to a solid 43-36 victory over the visiting Rams. “I thought it was a good game,” Potsou said. “Both teams played well. Ladue …

Chaminade has won the school's Christmas tournament each year since 2007.
Chaminade Junior Guard Andy Kleinlein hit for 15 points Thursday night to lead the host Red Devils past Pattonville 37-31 to end round robin play in the Creve Coeur school's annual Christmas Tournament. Chaminade advances to Friday's championship game at 7 p.m. against John Burroughs. As the score might indicate, it was a low-scoring affair at the Athletictron. Chaminade led 19-15 at the half, giving up only three Pirate points in the second quarter but only scoring six of its own. The Pirates stayed in the game with timely three-point shooting and a pressing defense. Pattonville was led by Senior Guard Kavon Harvey with 14 points. John Burroughs advanced by defeating Parkway Central 46-41 in the late game Thursday. Chaminade has claimed …

Nationwide attention for high school basketball, and prolific years for local wideouts were among the stories which dominated the sports headlines in 2011.
As 2011 draws to a close, Creve Coeur Patch is taking a look back at some of the biggest stories of the year in a variety of categories, and we want to know what you think, too. Here are three we picked out, in no particular order: Bradley Beal's Senior Season The Chaminade standout brought a close to one of the most storied high school basketball careers in St. Louis basketball history with a senior season filled with accolades and nationwide attention. He led the Red Devils to the state quarterfinals, averaging 32.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.7 steals per game. Normally, "all-everything" is little more than a lazy writer's platitude, but in this case, Beal literally fit the bill. He was the Gatorade Basketball Player of the …

The Spartans fell to Maryville 69-50 Monday night.
Monday, December 19, 2011
Editor's Note: This game report is courtesy of the Missouri Baptist University Sports Information Department. Maryville’s Asa Toney led all scorers with 25, as the Saints men’s basketball team cruised to a 69-50 victory over Missouri Baptist University on Monday. The Spartans came into the game winners of their previous six games, but ran into a very disciplined NCAA Division II team. Missouri Baptist had a difficult time putting points on the board and fell victim to the high-tempo Saints’ offense. The Maryville offense was hot in the first half, shooting 65 percent from the floor to take a 43-24 lead into halftime. In the second frame, the Spartans began to raise their level of play, as the Saints could not maintain its high shooting …
