  • Bruising victory for Stevenson Dec 19, 2014 11:48 PM
    A hustling Jalen Brunson ran into a brick wall — Caleb Reams, actually — fouled and tumbled, landing on his left shoulder. Stevenson’s star won’t lose many battles. Most high school basketball players, however, won’t fare well when crashing into Reams, Warren’s 6-foot-3, 240-pound University of Illinois football commit. “I’m just icing it. It’s a little sore,” Brunson said of his shoulder. “It’s got a little bruise on it. I kept trying to stretch it out (during the game). But I should be fine.” At game’s end, all was well for Stevenson and Brunson, too. Brunson, who didn’t miss any time on the court after his first-quarter collision with Reams, scored 10 of his game-high 18 points in the fourth quarter, and Stevenson held off a furious rally by the visiting Blue Devils to win 50-41 Friday night.

  • Konkle, Metea Valley too much for South Elgin Dec 20, 2014 12:24 AM
    Metea Valley center Mark Konkle expected to see South Elgin’s 6-foot 10 center Tyler Hankins crowding him around the glass in the Mustangs’ 83-51 Upstate Eight Conference Valley Division boys basketball blowout of the Storm in South Elgin Friday night. Instead, with Hankins in street clothes until the end of January due to injury and Konkle’s 6-foot-6 frame giving the senior a 4-inch height advantage against his defenders, the cup was free and the game plan was to get the ball inside to the 235-pounder and the rest would take care of itself.
