Ranked opponent, transportation problems can’t slow New Trier girls basketball team

The school bus that was slated to drive New Trier’s girls basketball team to its quarterfinal game at the Dundee-Crown Charger Classic tournament never arrived Saturday afternoon.

A second bus eventually got the Trevians to Dundee-Crown at 7:25 p.m., 35 minutes before New Trier was scheduled to tip off against Burlington Central. The two previous games went to overtime, buying the Trevians extra time. After a sluggish start, New Trier started rolling in the second quarter. The Trevians pushed the lead to 20 by the end of the third quarter and went on to earn a 62-41 victory over the Rockets.
