  • Niles North outscores Elgin Jan 19, 2015 9:31 PM

  • Nardini (39 points) paces Vernon Hills’ OT victory Jan 17, 2015 10:04 PM
    Even the most optimistic Vernon Hills boys basketball fan had to be thinking the Cougars were in trouble when they trailed Niles North by 10 with four minutes left in their contest at the 3rd Annual Martin Luther King Classic at Lake Zurich. “I told them when they came to the bench that we had one more shot at this,” said Vernon Hills coach Matt McCarty. “To their credit, they still had their heads up and were confident.” Then again, with Wisconsin-Stevens Point-bound senior Robby Nardini around; the Cougars really aren’t out of any game. Nardini began to heat up and that meant bad things for the Vikings. Despite playing on legs that were cramping badly, Nardini was still able to find his shot. He scored 12 points for the Cougars over the final four minutes of regulation. Then, after teammate Matt Weaver forced overtime on a layup with 2 seconds left, Nardini went off in the extra session. His 8-point outburst gave him a career-best 39 points, tying the tournament record set by Duante Stephens of Niles North last season. That and a tournament record-setting eight 3-pointers from Nardini pushed Vernon Hills past Niles North 89-80 in overtime to keep the Cougars unbeaten in tournament play.
