Taking one for the team

Taking one for the team — Triopia’s Zach Thompson is knocked to the floor while teammate Tanner Allen takes an elbow to the side of the head as Providence St. Mel’s Samuel Herenton (24)   flies to the basket.  Herenton was called for an offensive foul  on the play that set the tone for what would be a rough and tumble first half in the Trojans’ opening game of the IHSA State Finals played in Peoria over the weekend.
