ROCKFORD AUBURN LOOKING FOR A RELOAD

Since the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic began in 2015, one thing has remained constant:  Rockford Auburn is a tough out in the first round.  The Knights are the only school to participate in the HCHC who have a perfect 3-0 record in opening round games.  Auburn brings to the Classic a lot of hallowed history in their program and they hope to continue that history making process this December.  The Rockford school will return a pair of athletic playmakers in 5-11 sophomore Joshua Ausler and 6-2 Demonde Barmore.  Ausler recorded a start for the Knights at last year's HCHC as a freshman and Barmore averaged nearly 10 points per game in his three starts in Hinsdale last Christmas.  As always, expect a tough in-your-face defensive effort from the Knights again this year.
