Detweiler's second 3-pointer of the game and 5 points from Thibeaux helped Grayslake North outscore Highland Park 16-10 in the third quarter to knot the score at 36-36.

Antioch 76, CICS/Northtown 28: At Chicago Northside, the fifth-seeded Sequoits won their Class 3A state playoff opener, ousting the 12th seed.
Megan Borries started the contest hitting two quick 3-pointers and a deuce to give the Sequoits a lead they would never relinquish. She wound up scoring 18 of her points in the first quarter and nabbing 3 steals in the process.
Because of the substantial lead the Sequoits developed, the second-string players saw ample minutes in the second half, earning what coach Tim Borries called a "true team victory." Amanda Cleven and Kristen Kelly came off the bench to score a season-high 10 and 8 points, respectively. Tiffany Gantz and Abby Augustin came off the bench to earn team-high rebounding honors with 7 apiece.
