  • Dekorsi, Buffalo Grove top Prospect in OT Jan 24, 2015 10:27 PM
    Memo to the Mid-Suburban East: Buffalo Grove is on the move. The Bison played their best boys basketball game of the year Saturday night, rallying from down 38-21 in the third quarter for a stunning 62-59 overtime victory over visiting Prospect. Even at 5-12 overall and 2-4 in the division, you’d have thought the boisterous young post-game Bison had just clinched the league title. Sophomore point guard Collin Dekorsi stood tallest with 30 clutch points, including a pair of fourth-quarter 3-pointers that knotted the game and 4 overtime free throws that helped build a virtually insurmountable lead.

  • Poetker powers Stevenson downstate Jan 24, 2015 10:40 PM
    Only a 6-pin denied Matt Poetker perfection. The Stevenson bowler settled for a 299 in his fourth game Saturday as part of the Stevenson sectional at Lakeside Lanes in Mundelein on Saturday. After he rolled his final ball, he couldn’t even watch it spin down the lane. “It was something to experience,” said Poetker, who had a 300 game two years ago, but not in high school competition. “It really gave the team the push it needed. I got really nervous on the last shot. The ball stuck on the thumb. Whatever happened, happened at that point. I really didn’t look. I had my eyes closed.” Stevenson had highlights other than Poetker’s 299 game, as the Patriots qualified for state for the first time along with five other teams. Harlem won the sectional with one of the best 6-game pinfalls (6,552) in the state. Rockton Hononegah was a close second (6,537). Stevenson took third place (6,215), followed by St. Charles East (6,027), Lake Zurich (5,983) and Freeport (5,960) in the 16-team field. All six teams will compete in the state tournament beginning Friday at St. Clair Lanes in downstate O’Fallon.

  • Game effort, but no win for Grayslake North Jan 24, 2015 10:00 PM
    Grayslake North’s weekend in Washington included four games. And more games. “They made a game ‘American Idol’ and ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ” freshman guard Brandi Thibeaux said of her teammates. “It was just crazy.” The Knights got singing talent? Maybe not. “It wasn’t the best,” Thibeaux said with a laugh. “It was funny, though.” Winners of four straight games for the first time this season, Grayslake North flashed its basketball talents Saturday against visiting Woodstock. Unfortunately for the Knights, it went as well as their singing in central Illinois last weekend. Woodstock saw an 11-point lead early in the second half trimmed to one on three occasions, including twice in the fourth quarter, before capturing a 46-38 decision in a Fox Valley Fox Division contest.

  • Schaumburg finds winning blend against Niles West Jan 24, 2015 10:34 PM
    Sophomore Mallory Gerber was as quick to pinpoint the reason for Schaumburg’s most recent success as she was to deliver a team-high 5 assists in Saturday’s nonconference girls basketball game against visiting Niles West. “We have been developing better teamwork every game,” said the 5-foot-11 Gerber after the Saxons recorded their fifth straight win, 58-49, and eighth out of their last 10 games. “And better team chemistry.” Speaking of chemistry, Gerber has the right mix. With her 5 assists, she also scored 9 points and grabbed 3 rebounds.

  • Jacobs pulls away from Elgin Jan 24, 2015 10:34 PM
    With the seconds ticking off the clock at the end of the first half, and leading Elgin by just one, Jacobs’ Cory Boeckh lobbed a pass toward the basket where Kenton Mack snatched the ball out of the air. Instead of slamming it home, Mack let it gently roll off his fingers as time expired, giving the Golden Eagles a 3-point lead. Jacobs would expand its lead from there, rattling off an 11-0 run to start the third quarter before cruising to a comfortable 58-37 nonconference boys basketball win at Chesbrough Field House in Elgin Saturday.
