Glenbrook South's girls basketball team started slowly this season, as the Titans they lost all five of their games in Schaumburg's Thanksgiving tournament.

They're turning it around, however, and Libertyville was the victim Saturday.

Glenbrook South won its second game in a row, defeating visiting Libertyville 51-34 in nonconference action.

"Our team has really improved our shooting, and that will be our key ingredient if we're going to be successful this season," Titans coach Steve Weissenstein said.

Carly Weinman, who led all scorers with 16 points, opened the game with four 3-pointers, and the Titans led 14-4 after the first quarter.

"Carly is one of those girls who is good in all four facets of the game -- shooting, defense, rebounding and passing the ball to the open shooter," Weissenstein said.

Libertyville (2-6) tried to claw its way back with an 8-0 run, as Rosie Lynch and Jessica Van Roeyan opened the second quarter with 3-pointers. But Glenbrook South outscored the visitors 15-12 in the quarter to take a 29-16 lead into halftime.

Caitlin Morrison added 13 points for Glenbrook South.

Becky Deichl led Libertyville with 8 points.

"(Glenbrook South) is a very good team and they execute very well," Wildcats coach Greg Pederson said. "We have a lot to work on. Once we start to produce, we'll be fine."
