Rend Lake Advances to Elite Eight


By WSIL Sports

DANVILLE -- After going 0-2 in their first appearance at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament last year, the Rend Lake Warriors wanted to make sure to stay around longer this year.

The fourth seeded Warriors opened tourney play with a 98-75 beat down of Cecil College Tuesday night.

Rend Lake led by 12 at the half, and put it away early in the second courtesy a 19-5 spurt before cruising to the 23-point win.

The Warriors advance to the quarterfinals Wednesday night where they will play South Suburban--the team that beat them in the opening round a year ago.
