Steinhaus, persistent Libertyville top Zion-Benton
Jan 16, 2015 11:02 PM -
After a long 3-point attempt front-rimmed for Libertyville junior Paul Steinhaus, he took both hands and banged them right to his forehead in frustration. Another long 3 rimmed out, and his arms went right in the air as he wondered why the iron was so unkind. So when he had a third attempt at a 3-pointer with the Wildcats trailing host Zion-Benton in a North Suburban Conference Lake Division contest Friday night, Steinhaus didn't hesitate. The long ball from the right side of the arch was perfect, and the only arms in the air were his teammates'. The long 3 gave Libertyville the lead, and a running layup by Steinhaus with 1:56 left secured a big 62-59 win, the Wildcats' third straight.
