The Streamwood girls basketball team usually likes it when an opponent plays a zone defense. But Friday night was not a night the Sabres would hit the like button. Geneva, which played a man-to-man defense against Streamwood in a 53-45 loss to the Sabres on Dec. 12, came out in a 2-3 zone Friday at Streamwood and challenged the Sabres to knock down outside shots. Streamwood didn't. Geneva overcame two starters fouling out and a 3-for-11 free throw performance in the fourth quarter to hold off the Sabres, 54-43, in an Upstate Eight Conference River Division game. The win brought the Vikings (13-10, 7-2) back into a virtual tie for the River lead with the Sabres (17-5, 8-2). The Vikings still have River games with Larkin today, then Elgin and St. Charles North next week while Streamwood plays Larkin and Batavia next week.
