Notre Dame 65 Hersey 48

The top-ranked Dons (25-3), led 24-15 after one quarter, 43-32 at the half and 59-41 after three quarters at Hersey (8-16) in Arlington Heights on Saturday.

Bolingbrook 68 West Aurora 56

The Raiders (21-5) bounced back from Friday's loss at H-F by rallying past West Aurora (8-17) at the Ernie Kivisto Shootout at East Aurora. The two teams were deadlocked at 15-15 after one quarter. The Brook led 29-27 at the half.

The Blackhawks soared into the lead at 34-32 after three quarters. Enter the Raider full-court pressure defense, which created numerous Blackhawk turnovers and saved the day.

Benet 51 Timothy Christian 39

The Redwings (18-7) led 12-7 after one quarter and 34-21 at the half versus their guests from Timothy Christian (19-6). The two clubs each scored 18 points in the even second half for the bounce-back win after Friday night's loss at Marian Catholic (19-7, 6-1).


Before an overflow crowd in Niles the Associated Press' Class 3A No.1 Dons of Notre Dame (24-3, 7-0) were indeed ready for their arch-rivals from St. Patrick (17-6, 5-2).

Leading 34-20 at halftime, the Dons rolled past the Shamrocks 58-43.

Louis Lesmond and Jason Bergstrom each hit three long-range bombs to give the Dons the 14-point halftime lead. Lesmond led the Dons with 15 points at the half.

With the win, the Dons clinched at least a share of the 2019-2020 East Suburban Conference Championship.

They will travel to Lisle on Valentine's Day and take on the Redwings of Benet Academy (17-7, 5-2). Marian Catholic (19-7, 6-1), who defeated Benet tonight, is hoping to grab a share of the ESCC title with a Benet win and a Marian Catholic win over St. Viator (17-7, 4-2) at Marian Catholic.


Joliet West 60 Plainfield East 49

Joliet West (21-4, 13-0) wrapped up the SPC East Conference Championship with the SPC East win on Friday.


Plainfield North 49 Minooka 40

Minooka (2-23,1-14) led this game 22-21 at the half. Plainfield North (16-7, 9-4) took a 35-31 lead after three quarters and rolled to their eighth consecutive win. With Oswego's (18-6, 8-4) loss at home to West Aurora, the Tigers move into second place in the SPC West behind Oswego East (17-8,10-3)


Lisle 60 Wilmington 53

The Lions (15-11, 9-2) picked up the huge win at Wilmington (9-14, 2-9) to stay atop the IC-8 with Streator (17-6, 9-2) and Manteno (16-9, 9-2).


Romeoville 63 Joliet Central 58

The Spartans (14-12, 9-4) slipped past the Steelmen (11-17, 5-8) to cement their hold on second place in the SPC East.


Downers Grove North 43 Glenbard West 40

The young Trojans won at historic Beister Gymnasium at Glenbard West (14-8, 1-7) to pull back to .500 on the season at 12-12. DGN is now in 5-4 in the WSC-Silver


Lockport 42 Andrew 40
