  • Carmel can’t catch up to quick-starting St. Patrick Feb 6, 2015 11:06 PM
    In the week leading up to Friday night’s East Suburban Catholic Conference matchup with visiting St. Patrick, Carmel boys basketball coach Zack Ryan emphasized the importance of a good start. The Shamrocks, however, had a similar game plan. And during the long rush-hour bus ride, senior Nicolas Coleman and his Shamrocks teammates had plenty of time to think about it. “Last year we had trouble starting fast,” Coleman said. “It’s something we have really focused on this year — getting started fast.” St. Patrick did start fast, much to the dismay of Ryan and the Corsairs. The Shamrocks jumped on Carmel 19-4 in the first quarter and stayed in control the whole way in an impressive 67-42 win in Mundelein on Friday night.

  • Warren’s Falish gets it right for senior year — and beyond Feb 5, 2015 4:25 PM
    Warren guard Jake Falish was tortured last year when he decided not to play basketball so that he could spend more time working on baseball. He regretted his decision right away and struggled to watch his teammates play on without him last winter. He returned to the hardwood this season with modest expectations and instead has blown the roof off at Warren. He's the team's leading scorer (20 ppg) and is one of the top 3-point shooters in the area. Oh yeah, and he's going to play sports (yes, plural) in college, where he won't be forced to choose between baseball and basketball.

  • Carmel edges Fremd in double OT Jan 31, 2015 11:08 PM
    It was back-to-back games for both Carmel Catholic and Fremd on Saturday night, so neither team particularly wanted to play extra periods in nonconference boys basketball on Saturday night.

  • Lakes taking visual approach to game-readiness Jan 29, 2015 11:12 PM
    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos work nicely, too. Instead of just telling all his seniors to play like they’re savoring every last moment of this dwindling basketball season, Lakes coach Chris Snyder decided to show them how others have done so. “We’ve been watching some inspirational movies, like ‘Hoop Dreams,’” Snyder said. “I liked it when we got to the part about William Gates’ last game. I wanted to give our seniors a sense of the season being over and what that feels like and just how you have to play like you’re cherishing every moment, because it will be over soon.”

  • Stevenson gets a humbling national-level reminder Jan 22, 2015 9:47 PM
    Top-ranked Stevenson is still unbeaten. In Illinois, that is. The only two losses for the state’s best team have come at the hands of top-notch, out-of-state competition, teams that are ranked nationally. Just like the Patriots (16-2). Stevenson’s most-recent loss, and its most lopsided loss of the Jalen Brunson era, was last weekend in the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. The Patriots lost to Findlay College Prep out of Nevada, 84-58. Findlay College Prep is the No. 1-ranked team in the USA Today Top 25 national high school poll.

  • Ultimately, Carmel Catholic able to finish off Streamwood Jan 19, 2015 7:14 PM
    A lot of times this season Carmel Catholic’s boys basketball team has played well in spurts, but at times finishing games has been an issue. On Monday afternoon, Corsairs coach Zack Ryan left it to the boys to take care of business themselves. Carmel had control of the game against Streamwood but almost let the game out of their hands. Ultimately, the Corsairs got past Streamwood 75-68 in their final game of Lake Zurich’s MLK tournament.

  • Carmel overcomes slow start against Elgin Jan 17, 2015 6:37 PM
    Clearly, some of the credit goes to Shareif Belser-Bailey. If Carmel’s junior guard had not made good on a 3-point play late in the first quarter on Saturday afternoon, the Corsairs’ boys basketball team would have been shut out for the entire quarter. Carmel missed 10 of 11 shots in the period in this matchup against Elgin at the 3rd annual Martin Luther King Classic held at Lake Zurich. However, there were plenty of reasons for this poor shooting. The Corsairs (8-10) had played Friday night at Marist, and got home late. Carmel also had already played host Lake Zurich on Saturday morning. OK — enough of the bad news for Carmel. The Corsairs outscored Elgin 24-6 in the fourth quarter, had three starters score 11 points and put away the Maroons 56-35.

  • Lake Zurich outduels Grayslake North at Palatine Jan 17, 2015 6:00 PM
    They saved the best wrestling meet for last Saturday at the Palatine megaduals. Trailing Grayslake North 25-9 with six matches to go, Lake Zurich made a dramatic late comeback to capture an exciting 32-28 nonconference victory over the Knights and cap off a 3-0 day. The Bears (15-6) opened the day with a lopsided 54-15 victory over West Chicago (13-14), before posting a similar 57-18 win over short-handed St. Charles North (3-12) in the second round. Despite also being at less than full strength, Carmel (6-13) managed to go 2-1 on the day, as the Corsairs fell to Grayslake North (12-9) 48-24, before beating West Chicago 35-30 and nipping St. Charles North 27-26 on a forfeit victory in the last match.

  • Warren’s Basara on winning path Jan 17, 2015 6:57 PM
    Emily Basara opted to join Warren’s girls gymnastics team, and she’ll eventually compete collegiately at Northern Illinois. On both levels, she’s following the lead of Warren graduate Kim Gotlund. And Basara is also achieving at a level similar to that of Gotlund, who finished high school as the state all-around champion. On Saturday, Basara hit a career-best in winning the all-around with a 38.20 and also had her best vault (9.87) at the Lake County meet held at Lake Forest High School.

  • Out-of-state setback for Stevenson Jan 17, 2015 11:42 PM
    While Stevenson’s boys basketball team remains undefeated in games played in Illinois this season, the Patriots on Saturday suffered their second loss out of state this month. Playing in the prestigious Hoop Hall Classic at Blake Arena in Springfield, Mass., Stevenson lost to Findlay College Prep 84-58.

  • Grayslake North takes aim against Washington foes Jan 15, 2015 10:47 PM
    Although there’s no scientific data as proof, there does seem to be anecdotal evidence that high school basketball in each area of Illinois is styled a bit differently. Just ask the Grayslake North boys basketball team. The Knights are preparing to return to downstate Washington High School this weekend as part of the annual Martin Luther King tournament there that they participated in last year. They are ready for what they weren’t quite ready for last time. “We couldn’t believe the shooting we saw there,” Grayslake North coach Todd Grunloh said. “It’s not like it is up here. Literally any kid who checks into the game down there can shoot from two to three feet outside the 3-point line and with great form."
