  • McClaughry and Co. help Lake Zurich get win No. 20 Feb 14, 2015 10:23 PM
    It’s hard to be sneaky when you stand 6 feet 7, but that’s exactly the way that Lake Zurich senior Will McClaughry hurt host Highland Park Saturday night in a nonconference contest. McClaughry sneaked by the Giants’ stingy defense when he drained a long 3-pointer in the first half. He finished with a team-best 14 points as the Bears hung on for a 49-46 win. Lake Zurich (20-8) won its 20th game in a season for the first time since 2005.

  • Highland Park’s 3-pointers do in Dundee-Crown Jan 17, 2015 11:16 PM
    Why employ an inside game offensively when the 3-point shot is a better option. That’s the philosophy of the Highland Park boys basketball team. Connecting on 10-of-25 shots from beyond the arc for 40 percent, the Giants’ outside sniping produced a 54-26 nonconference win over Dundee-Crown in Carpentersville Saturday night.

  • Warren celebrates Stanczykiewicz’s 300th win Jan 10, 2015 11:04 PM
    As its way of acknowledging girls basketball coach John Stanczykiewicz for recently winning his 300th game, Warren gave him several gifts before Saturday night’s tipoff against Highland Park. By game’s end, his players nearly presented him something else. A heart attack. Up 12 with less than two minutes left in a low-scoring nonconference game, Warren saw the visitors pull within 3, before hanging on for a 42-37 win.

  • Liwag leads the way in Maine West’s win Dec 13, 2014 12:06 AM
    When discussing Monica Liwag’s floor game in Friday’s 57-38 come-from-behind win over Highland Park, Maine West coach Derril Kipp said the Warriors junior guard was steady, made big shots when needed and made steals. And one more thing. “She gave us some leadership that we have been lacking,” he added. If ever the Hall of Fame coach needed leadership, it’s this season. For the first time in his 34 seasons, he is playing three freshmen regularly on the floor.

  • Wheeling sharpens up against Highland Park Dec 4, 2014 11:28 PM
    Thursday was a practice day for all Mid-Suburban League girls basketball teams except Wheeling, which played against visiting Highland Park. The Wildcats used the nonconference game as a tune up for today’s 6 p.m. Mid-Suburban League East opener at Buffalo Grove and at the same time they picked up their fifth victory in the young season. They made sure this one would never be in doubt after surging to a 25-3 lead after one quarter en route to a 66-41 decision.

  • Defensive focus helps St. Viator stop Highland Park Nov 28, 2014 8:34 PM
    Despite its lofty record a year ago, St. Viator’s boys basketball team struggled throughout the season on the defensive end. This season, without quite the same offensive firepower as a year ago, St. Viator and new coach Quin Hayes have emphasized the importance of defense. And their lesson has seem to taken hold as the Lions held Highland Park scoreless for over 10 minutes in the first half and came up with a huge stop at the end as the Lions held off the Giants 48-46 Friday in Arlington Heights.

  • Lefevre’s cold-blooded goal lifts Fremd Oct 31, 2014 10:10 PM

The victory moves the Vikes (18-5-1) into Tuesday’s Barrington supersectional against the winner of the Niles North sectional (New Trier vs. Evanston, Saturday).

  • Fremd passes Highland Park's test Mar 12, 2014 11:25 PM
    No wonder his next stop is the Ivy League. On a head-scratching night at Lake Zurich, considering he struggled finding the net as much as Highland Park, Fremd senior Riley Glassmann still found a way to help his team pass its Class 4A sectional-semifinal test. “D” sufficed for the “A” student. “Anyone is willing to do whatever it takes to win,” Fremd center Ben Carlson said. For Carlson's Cornell University-bound teammate Glassmann, that meant playing defense and finding his open teammates. Glassmann's team-first approach helped explain how Fremd won 47-26, despite its season-long scoring leader shooting just 1 of 10 from the floor.

  • Sachs’ big game helps Highland Park sink Libertyville Mar 4, 2014 11:14 PM
    It seems ludicrous, but it did come up: Was Highland Park’s David Sachs going to score all his team’s points in the Giants’ matchup at Libertyville? Sachs opened up this regional semifinal with back-to-back 3-pointers. And with less than three minutes to play in the first quarter, the scoreboard could have read: Sachs 10, Libertyville 7. Sachs didn’t really slow down that much. The junior scored a career-high 30 points as the Giants (21-7) eliminated Libertyville 60-50 on Tuesday night. The Giants will meet Lake Forest for the regional crown Friday night. The Scouts ended Barrington’s season 62-49 in the first game of the night.
