Naturally a team never wants to lose. But for the Lincoln-Way East boys basketball team, the fact that it was playing for a tournament title in the first week of the season was a very good sign.

In the end, the Griffins could not muster enough consistency and fell 65-40 to the host Tigers in the title game of the Joliet West Tiger Thanksgiving Classic on Saturday, Nov. 30.

With a bevy of returners and talented juniors stepping in, the Griffins (3-1) are expecting big things this season.
