  • Warren grows weary of near misses Feb 5, 2015 4:30 PM
    Getting close just isn’t cutting it anymore for the Warren boys basketball team. The Blue Devils (8-12, 2-6 North Suburban Lake) are getting tired of competing with some of the best teams in the state, even pushing them to the brink, and then falling short. In a total of five games against Zion-Benton, Lake Forest and Stevenson, three of the top teams in Class 4A, Warren has lost all five games by a combined 31 points, or about 6 points per game. The Blue Devils’ two losses to Zion-Benton have been by 4 and 3 points, respectively. A loss to Lake Forest last month was by 3 points. On Tuesday at Lake Forest, Warren was down just 1 point at halftime and by just 3 points with three minutes remaining before falling 46-34.

  • Warren’s Falish gets it right for senior year — and beyond Feb 5, 2015 4:25 PM
    Warren guard Jake Falish was tortured last year when he decided not to play basketball so that he could spend more time working on baseball. He regretted his decision right away and struggled to watch his teammates play on without him last winter. He returned to the hardwood this season with modest expectations and instead has blown the roof off at Warren. He's the team's leading scorer (20 ppg) and is one of the top 3-point shooters in the area. Oh yeah, and he's going to play sports (yes, plural) in college, where he won't be forced to choose between baseball and basketball.

  • Stevenson edges Grant for first NSC title Jan 31, 2015 8:45 PM
    A new rivalry was born Saturday in the 60th annual North Suburban Conference wrestling meet. Upstart Stevenson and perennial power Grant went toe to toe the entire weekend at Warren, before the Patriots ultimately won their first NSC championship by the slimmest of margins, 225.5 to 225.0, over the Bulldogs. “I don’t think there has ever been a tournament that defines team effort more than this tournament did for us,” Stevenson coach Shane Cook said. “It took all 14 guys working together. We knew how strong Grant’s guys were at certain weights, and we knew every match mattered.”
