Auburn girls basketball seek wins record, first regional title since Reagan administration

MACHESNEY PARK – The Auburn girls basketball team can pass a couple big milestones tonight in the IHSA Class 4A Harlem regional final against DeKalb.

Although the Knights have won 20 or more games four times in the prior 11 seasons, Auburn has not won an IHSA girls regional title since the 1986-1987 season. That season the school won it for the second straight year behind the play of Jametta Bland.

Also, at 25-6, the Knights already have the second most wins in a season by any Rockford Public Schools girls bsasketball team. They can tie the state-qualifying Jefferson team of 1990-1991 with a win tonight.

Here is the complete list of RPS girls basketball teams that won 20 or more games.
