It was an inside-outside combination Bartlett just couldn't contain.

Masroor Sahi provided the outside fireworks for Glenbard South (7-4, 4-2) with 18 points including four 3-pointers. He scored 15 in the first half while Harper Bryan dominated the paint with 14 points and 8 rebounds.

"We came out with high energy right out of the lockerroom,“ said Sahi. "We knew this was a big conference game on the road. The guys did a great job of getting me in good position to score. They trusted me."

Ryan was 7-of-10 from the field and scored 8 points in the first half and added 6 points in the fourth quarter.

"We came out with good energy and had good communication," said Ryan. "We are playing well and are on a nice win streak going into the Christmas tournament.“

A 3 at the buzzer by Sahi put Glenbard South up 13-6 lead after eight minutes.

The visitors from Glen Ellyn seized control of the game with an 8-0 run to start the second quarter. Bryan scored 6 points and PJ Lehr had a putback as the Raiders led 21-6 with 4:33 left in the first half.

The Raiders’ biggest lead was 47-27 on a 3 by Erickson with 7:22 left in the game.

Searce hit five 3-pointers scored 20 of his game-high 24 points in the second half for the Hawks.
