Signature win for Stevenson at Round Lake
Jan 20, 2015 11:10 PM -
Round Lake guard Michael Green did not get Jalen Brunson's autograph, as his dad, Tony, joked he should do when Stevenson's star ran by him on the court. Green got something else, however. On the opening possession of Tuesday night's North Suburban Conference crossover, the 6-foot-2 Brunson penetrated the lane. Green, who's 6-3, blocked the shot, triggering a Panthers fastbreak. "I wasn't expecting it," Green said. Stevenson was expected to win the game, and the state's No. 1 team did so easily. Brunson rebounded from Green swatting his first shot of the night, Ryuji Aoki came off the bench to score a career- and game-high 19 points, and the visiting Patriots cruised to an 83-42 win.
