Somber victory as Libertyville mourns Lipp
Dec 27, 2014 12:25 AM -
Alone on Libertyville's bench lay jersey No. 22, the one senior guard Jake Mansfield didn't want to wear any more because last season it belonged to Jack Lipp. "He texted me last night," coach Scott Bogumil said of Mansfield. "He said, I don't want to wear it the rest of the year,' " Libertyville played a basketball at Wheeling on Friday with heavy hearts and black tape on their white jerseys. Bogumil sported a "J.L. 22" patch on his shirt. The Wildcats then went out and, just a day after learning of the death of a former teammate, captured a 70-61 win over Niles North.
