South Elgin girls basketball coach Tim Prendergast probably won't see a game the rest of the season where his Storm turn it over 23 times, shoot a 32 percent clip from the field and still come out victorious. He also might not get to interrupt Hampshire coach Ed Haugens during his postgame interview insisting Ruth's Chris Steakhouse again, either. Luckily, all smiles came from both coaches, which was a contrast of how the Storm and Whip-Purs played in the season opener for both teams Wednesday night. In South Elgin's 48-40 win at Hampshire in a game that was a part of the Dundee-Crown Thanksgiving tournament, the Storm were the ones who coughed it up less, made more free throws and played better defense.
