About this Article
Downers Grove South senior center Robert Mara has the type of profile that gets NCAA Division III coaches excited. The 6-foot-8 Mara boasts plenty of athleticism and ability to run the floor. But because he's in his first year as a starter, he showcases improved skills virtually every time out and makes it fun for the coaches to project his ceiling. With Todd Raridon, leader of top-ranked North Central College, among the D-III coaches in the house Friday night at Willowbrook, Mara stacked up 24 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks to pace the Mustangs to a 59-48 West Suburban Gold victory in Villa Park.
