Superlatives in Chicago Area High School Basketball tonight!!!!!
I was at the second #5 New Trier vs #2 Glenbrook South matchup at the Titan Dome. New Trier went in and controlled the second half for a 51-45 win. Senior Dartmouth commit Jackson Munro had 20 points and 7 rebounds. He took it to Nick Martinelli all night making him play defense. Junior guard Jack Fiegen had 13 points on 3 three pointers. Senior guard Josh Kirkpatrick had 12 points. New Trier did a great job on senior Cornell commit Cooper Noard who didn't score a field goal until the last 2 minutes of the game. He ended up with 11 points 5 rebounds. Martinelli, an Elon commit ended up with 14 points 8 rebounds. Junior guard Rodell Davis Jr had 14 points on 4 three pointers all in the first half. They split the season series both winning road games. Not sure who will win the tie breaker for the regular season title, but I think they will meet a third time in the Glenbrook South Sectional Final.
Here we go for the rest of the performances in the area.
Josh Hutchinson 17 points for Wheeling in win over Hersey.
Sophomore Jaedin Reyna 15 points for St Rita in win over Fenwick.
Will Grudzinski 19 points for Barrington in win over Schaumburg.
Daniel Hong 19 points for Barrington in win over Schaumburg.
Tavarius Vinson a triple double for Dyett 16 points 11 rebounds 10 blocks in win over Amandia.
Senior Davontae Hall 21 points 5 assists 4 steals for Hyde Park in win over Phillips.
I'll be headed out to Northwestern University tomorrow night to check out the most exciting college basketball player in the country Caitlin Clark. Yes that's Mens or Women's. Folks need to check her out in action. Drive home safely folks(shake keys).
