Daily Herald report

Waubonsie Valley senior guard Jared Brownridge and Burlington Central freshman guard Shelby Holt have earned Daily Herald MVP honors for their recent basketball performances.

Brownridge had 33 points in a win over Bartlett and 26 to help the Warriors beat Peoria Central.

Holt had 6 3s, 21 points, 4 steals and 2 blocks to help Burlington Central clinch a conference championship by winning at Richmond-Burton.


Jared Brownridge, Waubonsie Valley: The 6-foot-2 senior guard enjoyed two of his top games in two of the Warriors' best wins. He began with 33 points in a 69-47 Upstate Eight Valley win over Bartlett. He followed with 26 points and 3 steals in a 68-45 win over Peoria Central. Overall, Brownridge made 74 percent of his field-goal attempts.


Antonio Domel, St. Edward: This 5-foot-7 senior guard helped the Green Wave draw within a game of the lead in the Suburban Christian Gold with his clutch second-half performance in a 68-64 victory over league-leading Montini. Domel scored 15 of his game-high 20 points after halftime, including 12 in the fourth quarter when he sank consecutive 3-pointers to open the period. His 3 steals and 4 assists helped St. Edward improve to 17-4.

Riley Glassmann, Fremd: The junior standout delivered a career-high 28 points in a 56-51 victory over Hoffman Estates that kept the Vikings tied for the MSL West lead. Two nights later, Glassmann had a game-high 10 points as Fremd's win streak hit three in a 35-30 victory at Carmel.

Johnathan Harrell, Aurora Christian: It's hard to make a bigger splash than this 6-foot-3 junior guard. Harrell went 6-of-6 on 3-pointers and scored a career-high 28 points with 6 rebounds in a 64-62 win over Timothy Christian. Three days later he scored 14 points and sank his sole 3 attempt at the horn to defeat St. Francis 54-53.

Danny Reed, Grayslake Central: Call it a great Reed. The book on the senior guard? He can flip jump shots. A three-year varsity player, he had fun against his old St. Gilbert buddy A.J. Fish and Grayslake Central. Reed scored a career-high 29 points, including three 3-pointers, but Fish (28 points) and the more-balanced Rams prevailed 72-57.


Shelby Holt, Burlington Central: After scoring 8 points in a 54-19 win over Harvard earlier in the week, Central's 5-foot-9 freshman forward came back on Saturday and lit up the gym at Richmond-Burton. Holt hit five 3-pointers on 7 attempts, and six in the game on 10 attempts, scoring 21 points and adding 4 steals and 2 blocked shots as Burlington Central won 56-34 to secure the Big Northern East conference championship, the Rockets' first conference title since 2006-07.


Chrissy Baird, Wheaton North: The Falcons' 6-foot-1 junior forward powered in a personal-high 27 points along with 17 rebounds, keying Wheaton North's 65-55 overtime win at West Aurora to remain a game back of WW South in the DVC. Earlier in the week Baird had 12 points and 7 rebounds as Wheaton North beat Glenbard East 67-22.

Alex DeCraene, Aurora Central Catholic: The Chargers won three straight games led by their senior captain. DeCraene scored a team-high 10 points in a 42-35 victory over Immaculate Conception, then totaled 19 points, 2 assists, 4 rebounds and 1 steal to help beat Guerin 51-50 and finished with 18 points, 1 assist, 6 rebounds and 2 steals in a 39-37 win over Glenbard East.

Alex Fracek, Antioch: A ferocious Fracek played fearlessly. The junior rebounding whiz was never better on the glass than she was against Round Lake. All she did was pluck a career-best 24 rebounds, including 18 on the offensive boards. She also scored a team-best 13 points, as the Sequoits captured a 56-37 victory.

Casey Weyhrich, Hersey: The senior point guard orchestrated the Huskies' offense to four wins in a span of a week. Weyhrich was an assist machine with 6 apiece in wins over Prospect, Glenbrook North and Elk Grove and 3 against Wheeling. She capped things off with a team-high 13 points in the big 39-22 win over Elk Grove on senior night.
