Prospect's girls basketball team bounced back from its only loss with a 57-40 victory at the St. Viator Cahill Gymnasium on Tuesday night in Arlington Heights.
Junior Taylor Will scored a game-high 19 points followed by junior Catherine Sherwood (18) and senior Mallory Gonzalez (10) to lead the Knights to their ninth win in 10 games.
"Our fourth quarter was huge," said Prospect coach Ashley Graham, whose team outscored the Lions 21-13 in the final eight minutes. "That extended our lead.
"Taylor and Catherine had big fourth quarters. Marissa Pacini hit some free throws and Haley (Will) had a big 3-pointer."
The Will sisters had back-to-back 3-pointers in the period.
"And Mallory (Gonzalez) had one of her better games," Graham added. "She finished very well and we've been talking about that. She had two 3-pointers so she did a very good job offensively."
Juniors Kayne Stanley (8 points) and Susie Moynihan (7) led Viator (5-5).
Barrington 67, Jacobs 56: Bailee McDonald (17 points) Angie Kirchoff (15 points), Brooke Gunderson (13) and Carrie Madden all reached double figures for the visiting Fillies in Algonquin.
Kirchoff had two 3-pointers and Gunderson added 1.
"Bailee McDonald (4 rebounds) did a nice job offensively," said Barrington coach Babbi Barreiro, whose team improved to 10-1. "Brooke Gunderson was very steady and Angie Kirchoff really kind of took over in the third quarter and helped us pull away."
Aoife Callanan handed out 4 assists.
"Aoife had a really nice second half for us,." Barreiro added. "She made some heads-up passes, finished well when she had to and made her free throws."
Madden, who reached double-scoring figures for the first time, also had 3 steals.
"Carrie had a real nice game," Barreiro said.
"It was a nice team victory. I thought everyone contributed in some way, shape or form. We still haven't put together four good quarters of basketball lately so I think we have to be a little more focused on that as we get into our final conference game of the year (at Palatine on Friday) and for our tournament coming up (at Dundee-Crown).
Cary-Grove 52, Buffalo Grove 45 (OT): Courtney Meyer (four 3-pointers) and Maddie Welter (two 3-pointers) each scored 12 points to lead host Buffalo Grove (6-6) in the nonconference game.
