X-citing finish again favors Williams, Fremd
Feb 7, 2015 9:19 PM - One way to gauge the character of a boys basketball team is if that team can bounce back after a disappointing conference loss on its home floor, to its neighboring rival. Fremd showed it has that bounce-back ability after a tough defeat to Palatine on Friday night. The Vikings got back on track with a thrilling 53-49 nonconference win against Evanston at Loyola Academy's War on the Shore shootout in Wilmette on Saturday. Xavier Williams and Kyle Sliwa came up with the big plays that made the difference in the game. Williams finished the 'X-citement' with a 3-point basket with 1.8 left on the clock to give Fremd (15-6) the lead at 51-49 on an assist from Patrick Benka. Williams finished with a game-high 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field.
