Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

ROCKFORD – East kept its unbeaten record and claimed sole possession of first place in the NIC-10, beating Boylan, 59-50, Wednesday night in East’s home gym.

Sincere Parker led the way with 23 points, while Chris Burnell capped off the action with a thunderous slam in the final seconds.

East is ranked 10th in the first Associated Press poll of the basketball season, which came out Wednesday afternoon. They’re 7-0 overall this season.

The E-Rabs built a 17-6 lead after one quarter, thanks to some hot outside shooting. They hit five three-pointers in the first quarter. But Boylan chipped away, cutting it to a two point game at halftime before taking a three point lead after three quarters. But the 4th quarter belonged to the E-Rabs, as Parker stepped up and hit some big shots to help lead his team to victory.
