The Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary basketball team played in the Mundelein Seminary of Chicago’s basketball tournament on Feb. 1 and 2, which resulted in three injured seminarians.
Senior Randy Vette took an elbow to the forehead during the second half of the first game against St. Paul Seminary. He was out the rest of the game.
With 3.8 seconds left in the game and the score tied, freshman point guard Alex Kren was fouled while attempting a deep three-point shot. This gave the IHM team a chance to win the game. With no time left, Kren made one free throw to win the game. The final score was 26-25.
The next day, Kren broke his ankle five minutes into a game against St. Joseph Seminary from Louisiana.
In the second half, sophomore Dan Mykleseth was elbowed underneath on his eyebrow. The IHM team ended up losing the game, which meant they were out of the tournament.
