Lady Maroons hold off Red Hill, 42-36
A strong finish to the first half was enough - barely - for Robinson High School's girls' basketball team to pick up a win to open play in the Little Illini Conference Tournament Thursday (Jan. 16).

The Lady Maroons broke open a close game late in the first half, then had to stave off a late rally to pick up a 42-36 win over Red Hill in the opening round game of the LIC Tournament in Robinson.
