  • Gillespie, Deere help Warren stay hot vs. Maine S. Jan 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    When rising Warren star Eric Gillespie hit one of those NBA-range 3-pointers midway through the second quarter on Tuesday night, Maine South coach Tony Lavorato, Jr. had seen enough.

His high-volume speech got through as Warren (10-6) never scored again before halftime. In a back-and-forth game at Warren, the streaking Blue Devils won their fifth game in a row, 48-43, and dealt just the third loss of the season to the visiting Hawks.

We were intense and really wanted to win bad.” Ross sure helped fuel the Warriors, connecting for four 3-pointers, en route to a career high 16 points, as West pulled away in the second half to a 47-26 victory.

  • Way has her say as Stevenson handles Maine S. Dec 26, 2013 12:00 AM
    In the season of giving, Sophia Way might have been giving too much. Of herself. So Stevenson coach Tom Dineen had a talk with his veteran junior before the Patriots’ game against Mundelein last week. “She’s been trying to do a little too much,” Dineen said. “I told her, ‘Just go play. Have fun. It’s high school basketball.’ She was trying to be the assistant coach, the cheerleader, the team mom, the captain.” In Stevenson’s first contest in Dundee-Crown’s Charger Classic since 2006, Way was the game’s leading scorer and best player on the floor. The sweet-shooting guard dropped in 13 of her 23 points in the opening quarter, as the Patriots bolted to an early lead and never trailed, pulling away for a 68-46 win over Maine South on Thursday.
