  • Tall order? No big deal for St. Viator Mar 8, 2014 12:02 AM
    The shorter team from the smaller school came up big. St. Viator, playing with the energy, desire and fight that is personified in its coach (former Lion point guard Mike Howland,) somehow survived being outsized by Zion-Benton and came away with a convincing 81-64 victory to win the Rolling Meadows IHSA Class 4A boys basketball regional on Friday night. Next up? Last year’s state runner-up, Jalen Brunson and Stevenson at the Lake Zurich sectional on Tuesday night. But first, the Lions (23-5) will savor a win over a tall, talented team that features a college-size front line and Lake County’s leading scorer, Milik Yarbrough.

  • Vernon Hills wins on Bahlmann's big shot Feb 13, 2014 12:13 AM
    From the top of the key, Monica Bahlmann, No. 33, who already had hit two 3s, shot another 3. “As soon as it left her hand,” Vernon Hills girls basketball coach Paul Brettner said, “I'm like, 'Oh, my gosh. That's going in.' ” Must be. It splashed the net, sure enough. And 13 seconds later, Vernon Hills was celebrating a stunning 43-42 win over visiting Zion-Benton in the North Suburban Conference championship game Wednesday night. Bahlmann's heroics gave the Cougars their second NSC title in a row.

  • Emotional outcome as Zion-Benton clinches Lake Feb 8, 2014 11:51 PM
    Zion-Benton’s girls basketball players had an important game to play Saturday. Which meant they couldn’t attend a benefit in Winthrop Harbor for a teammate’s ill stepdad. But, oh, did the Zee-Bees ever show up against host Stevenson in a winner-take-all North Suburban Lake Division finale. Zion-Benton played with poise down the stretch and pulled out a 61-54 win that earned the Zee-Bees a berth in Wednesday’s 7 p.m. NSC championship game at Vernon Hills.

    The Stevenson Patriots hosted the Zion-Benton Zee-Bees for boys basketball action on Friday, February 7 in Lincolnshire.

  • Full recovery for Stevenson against Z-B Feb 8, 2014 12:05 AM
    It could have been some bad fast food from earlier in the afternoon. “Or it might have been this morning’s breakfast,” Stevenson star guard Jalen Brunson said. “It might be the stomach flu. I just didn’t feel good the entire game.” But Brunson did his best on Friday night to ignore his weak stomach and guide Stevenson to an 81-63 North Suburban Conference victory over Zion-Benton in front of a standing-room-only crowd that included admirers such as Michigan State coach Tom Izzo and the entire coaching staff from the University of Illinois.

  • Yarbrough’s milestone night helps Z-B to victory Feb 4, 2014 11:13 PM
    It was a record-setting night on multiple levels at Mundelein. Needing 30 points to catch former Deerfield star Ryan Hogan and become the all-time leading boys basketball scorer in Lake County history, Zion-Benton senior forward Milik Yarbrough scored 32 points to lead the Zee-Bees to a 70-64 win over the Mustangs in North Suburban Lake Division action Tuesday night.

    Tramone Hudson poured in a career-high 27 points, and Lakes’ boys basketball team earned a 73-60 win over visiting Vernon Hills on Saturday night. Lakes improved to 9-11 and 5-2 in the North Suburban Prairie Division. The Eagles received 11 points apiece from Ethan Sage, Jake Balliu and Michal Tomasiewicz. Robby Nardini led Vernon Hills (10-8, 3-4) with 18 points. Sam Rattner and Bo Manso added 13 and 12 points, respectively, for the Cougars, who lost their fifth in a row.

  • Winning wears well on Mundelein Jan 25, 2014 10:26 PM
    Practice won’t stink for Mundelein’s girls basketball team Monday. Not only should the Mustangs have a bounce in their step after their 10th win in 11 games — the latest being Saturday night’s 46-44 victory over Zion-Benton that knocked the Zee-Bees from the unbeaten ranks in the North Suburban Lake Division — but they won’t have to wear those ugly, smelly, reversible, PE-class tops.

  • Starring role for Z-B’s Admiral Jan 24, 2014 11:44 PM
    Credit this Zion-Benton win to the Admiral. No, not the former Navy star David Robinson, but a real Admiral. In the first half of the Warren vs. Zion-Benton matchup, Zee-Bees oversized guard Admiral Schofield (6-foot-5) had one dunk shot and 6 missed free throws. Zion-Benton (18-1) opened a double-digit lead in the first quarter over Warren in this NSC Lake Division battle on Friday night. The upstart Blue Devils went on a 15-0 run, taking a 50-46 lead with three minutes to play. And then Schofield took over the game, scoring 12 of his game-high 21 points in the final quarter. Warren (12-9) went home empty-handed after a painful 61-57 loss.

  • North Chicago perfect in Prairie Jan 24, 2014 10:50 PM

  • Webb returns as Vernon Hills tops Antioch Jan 18, 2014 11:32 PM
    Vernon Hills flexed the muscle of a two-time defending division champion on Saturday. The host Cougars, who have won the last two North Suburban Conference Prairie Division girls basketball championships, rolled to a convincing 55-29 win over Antioch, which held a slight edge in the current division standings. Now, Vernon Hills and Antioch are tied with North Chicago for first place in the Prairie, all three at 6-2. Vernon Hills improves to 15-5 overall while Antioch drops to 16-6. Sydney Smith paced Vernon Hills with 16 points while Kasey Firnbach and Monica Bahlmann each chipped in with 9 points apiece. Bowling Green recruit and reigning Daily Herald player of the year Lauren Webb, who has missed most of the season with a foot injury, returned to the lineup and scored 8 points for the Cougars.

  • In the end, momentum favors Z-B against Libertyville Jan 17, 2014 11:17 PM
    One 3-point shot could’ve been the momentum-changer for Libertyville’s boys basketball team against Zion-Benton on Friday night. The Wildcats had clawed back from a 14-point second-quarter deficit to tie the game on Jack Lipp’s jumper with five minutes left in the final quarter. He finished with a team-best 21 points. When Libertyville got the ball back following a Zion-Benton turnover, Matt Reed (14 points), who had hit 3 straight three-pointers in the fourth quarter, lined up a try at a fourth straight. But Libertyville’s momentum ran out at that point, as Reed’s shot went in and out. After the Wildcats missed that opportunity at the lead — the first such chance since the first couple minutes of the first quarter — they didn’t get another. Zion-Benton never relinquished the lead and held off host Libertyville 67-64 in the North Suburban Lake game on Friday night.
