  • 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.

  • 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.

     
  • North Chicago turns back Grant Jan 29, 2014 11:33 PM
    Grant’s boys basketball team flirted with an upset Wednesday night. The Bulldogs were tied with host North Chicago 60-60 with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the Warhawks prevailed 85-79.

    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.

     
  • Despite OT loss, Warren likes the outlook Jan 15, 2014 10:58 PM
    After coming tantalizingly close to a huge upset at Zion-Benton on Wednesday night, Warren’s girls basketball players could have hung their heads and muttered about what might have been. Instead, with heads held high, the Blue Devils wondered aloud what still might be. Warren (5-14, 1-6) hung tough with the Zee-Bees (15-3, 7-0) all night in the North Suburban Conference Lake contest, finally succumbing 57-55 in overtime after Zion’s Auri Hampton sank a pair of free throws with 3.7 seconds remaining following a crucial turnover by the Blue Devils.

     
  • Postgame tussle tarnishes Z-B’s OT win against Stevenson Jan 10, 2014 11:21 PM
    Well, the key North Suburban Conference Lake Division contest between Zion-Benton and Stevenson certainly exceeded the hype. For two teams that hadn’t seen live game action in 24 days combined, they made up for it with four thrilling quarters and one extra overtime session. It all ended on a runner by Zion-Benton senior Fred Calvert with :09 seconds left, stinging the Patriots with their first loss of the year 70-69 in overtime. The great finish and fantastic game was marred by a skirmish between the two teams during the handshake line immediately following the contest. Coaches, players, and fans from both teams ended up in a melee that ended with both teams clearing the gym and Stevenson boarding its team buses without making comment.

     
  • Zion-Benton stops Carmel in Hinkle finale Dec 29, 2013 12:00 AM
    They started it and ended it. And while Carmel Catholic’s Corsairs didn’t finish the way they wanted in the championship game of the Hinkle Holiday Classic, losing to Zion-Benton 61-49 Saturday night, they’ll start the new year still a confident basketball team. Carmel played the first of 40 games in the Jacobs tournament and earned a berth in the finale exactly one week later. The Corsairs (10-3) went 4-1 from Saturday to Saturday.

     
  • Geneva wins out at Montini Dec 28, 2013 8:45 PM
    After losing its opening-round game of the Montini Catholic Christmas Tournament, Geneva’s girls basketball team made a goal for the remaining three contests. “We decided right after that first game we lost that we were going to win the consolation bracket,” said Geneva junior Janie McCloughan. The Vikings (11-3) accomplished their goal with Saturday’s convincing 64-37 victory over Zion-Benton in the consolation championship of the prestigious 4-day tournament in Lombard.

     
  • Zion-Benton gives Larkin a taste of its own medicine Dec 28, 2013 8:59 AM
    Athletic Larkin thrives via the fast break, but the Royals were beaten 78-72 by a taller version of themselves in a semifinal of the Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs Friday night. In what might have been a preview of the Class 4A DeKalb supersectional if each highly regarded team goes on to win its respective sectional, Zion-Benton (12-2) overcame an early deficit with a 14-0 second-quarter run fueled by 10 fast-break points.

     
  • Batavia recovers from slow start Dec 23, 2013 9:26 PM
    The Batavia girls basketball team is evidently not accustomed to playing a holiday tournament game on a Monday morning. "We had a five-minute run where we weren’t awake,” Batavia coach Kevin Jensen said. “After that, I was pretty pleased (with their play).” The Bulldogs spotted Zion-Benton a 15-8 lead after the opening quarter of the Montini Christmas Tournament but more than recovered behind senior standout Liza Fruendt for a 49-34 victory.

     
  • Zion-Benton chews up Bartlett Dec 23, 2013 6:02 PM
    Deviating from the recipe left a bad taste in the mouths of the Bartlett boys basketball players following a 66-34 loss to Zion-Benton at the Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs Monday morning. Facing a team with Division-I prospects Milik Yarbrough (6-foot-6) and Admiral Schofield (6-5), Bartlett’s goal was to slow cook the Zee-Bees by playing deliberately on offensive, according to coach Jim Wolfsmith’s cookbook. That meant eating clock with 5-8 passes per possession before looking for slips, curls, backdoor layups and wide-open, popout 3-pointers.

     
  • Zion-Benton hands Crystal Lake South 1st loss Dec 21, 2013 9:46 PM
    A sizzling start by Crystal Lake South senior Austin Rogers inadvertently sparked Zion-Benton in Saturday’s first-round boys basketball game of Jacobs’ Hinkle Holiday Classic in Algonquin. Rogers scored the Gators’ first 11 points to give them a 3-point lead after three minutes. The tall, talented and deep Zee-Bees didn’t waste much time showing they got the message. It took Z-B eight minutes to open a 15-point as Division I recruits Admiral Schofield and Milik Yarbrough led the way to a 79-65 victory despite a game-high 27 points from Rogers.
