Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

PEORIA (WREX) — The East E-Rabs journey for a state title is over.

The E-Rabs lost to the Evanston Wildkits in the 4A semifinal Friday at Carver Arena at the Peoria Civic Center.

Evanston won 94-82, The E-Rabs fall to 34-3 on the year.

The E-Rabs will play in the third-place game at 5:30 p.m. in Peoria.

Evanson got a big push ahead in the first half, leading East 48-29. But the E-Rabs showed the ability to come back from a deficit against Geneva in the super-sectional. Coach Roy Sackmaster said Evanson is a team that’s very similar to the E-Rabs’ athletically and in style of play.

This is the first trip to state for the E-Rabs boys basketball team in 41 years.
