Hit up to give some money to Evanston's First Night celebration, Evanston aldermen got into a wide-ranging debate about the project this week before agreeing to have taxpayers cough up the dough.

It started with Alderman Coleen Burrus, 9th Ward, who complained about the request for $5,000 from the city -- which the non-profit group said would be used to cover the cost of event admission buttons to be distributed to low-income residents through several other non-profit groups.

Elliot Whitefield already has Friday, Jan. 23, circled on his 2015 basketball calendar.

Why? Because the ETHS girls cage coach can’t wait for the rematch with New Trier, even after the Trevians scored what looked like a convincing 62-43 Central Suburban League South division triumph Tuesday night as part of a basketball doubleheader in Winnetka.

Whitefield believes in his young squad and is only convinced that the Wildkits could be a different --- and better --- team by the time the two rivals meet again in Beardsley Gym.

Evanston’s coaching staff caught a glimpse in practice over the past week of a basketball team that is starting to put all phases of the game together.

That performance carried over and helped the Wildkits dominate arch-rival New Trier 57-35 in the Central Suburban League South division opener for both teams Tuesday night in Winnetka.

Head coach Mike Ellis called it “probably our best game at both ends of the floor” as the Kits improved to 5-2 overall and held the Trevians (2-4) to 30 percent shooting on their home court.
