  • 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.”

    Ellie Haviland’s buzzer-beating shot did more than allow Lakes’ girls basketball team to edge visiting Lake Forest on Monday night. With their 46-45 victory, the Eagles have the first four-game winning streak in their history. The win also avenged a 51-34 defeat on Jan. 17.

  • 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.

  • Hollywood finish favors Balliu, Lakes Jan 16, 2015 11:26 PM
    They’ve talked about it. A lot. One year, Antioch boys basketball coach Jim White and his players even got together for pasta and a “movie,” watching a tape of the Sequoits’ 94-88, triple-overtime win at Lakes on Dec. 16, 2006. The Sequoits probably won’t request a copy of Friday night’s North Suburban Prairie Division game. Seeking to beat its District 117 rival for the first time since that memorable winter night eight years ago, host Antioch led by 14 points with two minutes gone in the second half. But then the Eagles’ Benett Haviland started stroking 3-pointers. Jake Balliu sank a pair of clutch free throws down the stretch, and when Antioch missed a couple of desperation three-point tries in the final seconds, Lakes had stunned the Sequoits 45-42. Lakes’ players and several student fans stormed the court.

  • 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."

  • Lakes’ Solbrig happily says ‘Aloha’ to basketball Jan 15, 2015 7:59 PM
    Lakes forward Dalton Solbrig might have the most enviable college opportunity in all of Lake County. He'll hang up his hightops at the end of the winter and turn in his winter coat for good as he'll be off to play volleyball for the University of Hawaii.

  • Rohr, Lakes shoots past Wauconda Jan 13, 2015 11:14 PM
    Kyle Rohr’s four-point play cued a roar from Lakes’ crowd. “As soon as he shot it, I knew it was going in,” Eagles forward Ethan Sage said. “As soon as it came out of his hand, it looked good. And he sold it well enough to get the foul.” Even louder is the noise Lakes’ basketball team is making the court. The Eagles climbed within a game of the .500 mark on the season with a 48-36 win over host Wauconda in a North Suburban Prairie Division contest Tuesday night. The victory for Lakes (8-9, 4-1) hiked its winning streak to a season-best three games.

  • Zogran, Antioch extend streak against Lakes Jan 10, 2015 11:17 PM
    The home crowd roared after she blocked a shot with just under 3 minutes left in the game. Actually, Antioch senior guard Shannon Zogran got a kick out of it. “I’m only 5-4, so it’s awesome getting a blocked shot once in a while, especially on a fast break,” Zogran said after pouring in a career-high 19 points that helped Antioch cruise past rival Lakes 74-47 in North Suburban Prairie action Saturday night. And actually, the home crowd has had plenty to roar about not only on this night but for the entire season. So far the Sequoits are 16-2 overall and stayed unbeaten at 7-0 in the Prairie after the win over Lakes. Antioch is also on a current 13-game winning streak.

  • Lakes’ defense takes center stage against Grant Jan 9, 2015 11:49 PM
    A big group of alums, including T.J. Edwards, now a football player at Wisconsin, showed up to cheer on the Lakes basketball team Friday night. They really liked a fourth-quarter dunk by 6-foot-3 senior Ethan Sage, not to mention all the other baskets the Eagles got in running to a 67-52 North Suburban Conference Prairie Division victory over visiting Grant. But it was the Lakes defense that really stole the show, especially early on.

  • Lakes makes the time for a special challenge Jan 8, 2015 9:25 PM

The Eagles’ players, parents and coaches will help keep score of games, referee, run clocks, present awards to participants and distribute lunches. They’ll cheer, too. Games will take place on six courts simultaneously.
