  • Basketball mourns coaching losses, but their lessons will endure Feb 12, 2015 5:41 PM
    Two college coaching giants died this week, Dean Smith and Jerry Tarkanian. Their influence on the game of basketball and other coaches is widespread. In that vein, Patricia Babcock McGraw polled boys coaches in the Daily Herald's Lake County coverage area about their biggest influences in coaching.

     
  • Sweet finish for Grayslake North Feb 10, 2015 11:10 PM
    The cake was laid out for the Grayslake North seniors. It was stationed in a nearby room, awaiting the party for the six Knights’ seniors. All North had to do was to dispense of 2-game winner Grant on Tuesday night in Grayslake. Evidently, the Grant team didn’t get the same memo. Especially Bulldogs senior Jacob Hanlin. He went to halftime with 17 points in his back pocket. On two more free throws from Hanlin, it looked like the North party might turn sour. The Grant lead was 16 points at 49-33 in the third quarter. “We let up a bunch of easy shots,’’ said North senior Lucas Buckels. “We were able to score the whole game. But we started a concerted effort to stop them.” Buckels and teammate Aidan Einloth both scored 18 points as Grayslake North (13-8) tied this nonconference game early in the fourth quarter and went on to post a 63-57 win.

  • Grant makes its point in regional triumph Feb 7, 2015 8:14 PM
    One week after watching its dream of a North Suburban Conference wrestling title dashed by a miniscule half-point, Grant had a day to remember. This time, the Bulldogs won the matches that mattered, giving them the edge they needed to lift Class 3A regional trophy. The Bulldogs rode individual championships from Christian Kanzler (126), Cristian Coronado (138) and Mike Kouvelis (152) along with five third-place finishes to edge Barrington (183.5-167.0) and the rest of the field to win the team title on their home floor in Fox Lake.

     
  • Novak, Warren savoring this sectional trip Feb 7, 2015 10:42 PM
    Rolling right along, there’s Warren coach Rich Novak. He’s been coaching in the Blue Devils girls bowling program for the last 20 years, the last 10 as head coach. But all rolls must end eventually, which means Novak will especially enjoy this season and one last trip to the sectional round. Novak’s squad was one of four to advanced from the Warren regional at Bertrand Lanes on Saturday. “Getting to the sectional was one of our goals,” Novak said. “They all stayed together and worked together through everything.” Novak will retire after this school year. He’s looking forward to a bright future, both for the Warren program and himself. “Retiring is hard to do,” he said, “but I know it’s time to get younger people out here — and I want to do some traveling.”

  • 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.

  • Stevenson edges Grant for first NSC title Jan 31, 2015 8:45 PM
    A new rivalry was born Saturday in the 60th annual North Suburban Conference wrestling meet. Upstart Stevenson and perennial power Grant went toe to toe the entire weekend at Warren, before the Patriots ultimately won their first NSC championship by the slimmest of margins, 225.5 to 225.0, over the Bulldogs. “I don’t think there has ever been a tournament that defines team effort more than this tournament did for us,” Stevenson coach Shane Cook said. “It took all 14 guys working together. We knew how strong Grant’s guys were at certain weights, and we knew every match mattered.”

     
  • Antioch reaches out, grabs outright Prairie title Jan 30, 2015 11:59 PM
    In their postgame speeches about Carly McCameron on senior night, Antioch juniors Kelly Johnson and Alexis Duehr shared with the home crowd what they love about their teammate. Johnson recalled their first day of tryouts two years ago. Duehr noted the 6-foot-1 McCameron’s long arms. “They’re the best,” a smiling McCameron said of Johnson and Duehr. “They’re smarty pants. Both of them.” McCameron and her Antioch teammates continued making memories Friday night. Thanks to a 60-33 win over short-handed Grant, which played without leading scorer Jasmine Sangster (stomach flu), the Sequoits clinched their first outright North Suburban Prairie Division title. Antioch (24-2, 10-0), which shared the crown with Vernon Hills last year, will play in its first NSC championship game when it visits Stevenson on Feb. 11.

The history-minded Bears followed that theme on Friday in claiming the program’s first-ever North Suburban Conference title at Sunset Lanes in Waukegan.

Warren was the runner-up at 5,498 and Stevenson took third at 5,431 in the 12-team field.

     
  • 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.”
