Prospect's girls basketball team reached double digits in wins, and almost did the same in 3-pointers on Friday night at Elk Grove.

The Knights (10-1, 2-1) connected for nine 3's en route to a 50-28 victory over the Grenadiers in the Mid-Suburban East contest.

Taylor Will (game-high 19 points) hit four 3-pointers while her sister Haley (9 points) had 3 and Mallory Gonzalez (6 points) added 2.

Catherine Sherwood added 14 points for the Knights, who raced to a 22-5 lead after one quarter.

"Obviously, we got off to a nice start," said Prospect coach Ashley Graham. "We've been working hard on zone offense the past few days and the kids executed wonderfully.

"You've got to be happy with nine 3-pointers. That really opens up the inside-outside game and forced them to go to man-to-man defense, which we are accustomed to seeing.

"I'm proud of the kids offensively and defensively. It's a good way to go into the Dundee-Crown tournament and the Christmas break."

Junior Amber Lindfors led the Grens (3-7, 0-3) with 12 points.

Conant 62, Hoffman Estates 29: Nireet Dillon (9 points), Sarah Mazurek (16 pts, 3 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals), Lexi Zades (7 points), Brie Murphy (4 rebounds), Haley Anderson (10 points, 4 rebounds), Alissa Wachal (8 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists) and Jorie Wachal (3 rebounds) were among the leaders for visiting Conant which improved to 6-5 and 2-1 in the MSL West.

Freshmen Monraia Wilson and Maya Bowens each scored 8 points for Hoffman (0-10, 0-3).

Rolling Meadows 78, Buffalo Grove 52: Jackie Kemph (24 points, 11 assists), Jenny Vliet (23 points, 8 rebounds), Alexis Glasgow (8 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 assists) and Ashley Montanez (8 points, 7 rebounds) were top scorers for the host Mustangs (11-1, 3-0) in the MSL East game.

Maddy Callahan (18 points) and Maddie Welter (17) led BG (6-7, 1-2).

Fremd 82, Schaumburg 48: Host Fremd improved to 9-1 and 3-0 in the MSL West win over Schaumburg (1-9, 1-2). Haley Gorecki (30 points), Bryana Hopkins (18) and Brianna Lewis (11) led the Vikings.

Maine West 45, Deerfield 43: All-time leading Maine West scorer Brittany Collins tossed home 20 points with 12 rebounds as the host Warriors improved to 9-3 and 4-0 in the Central Suburban North.

Kayla Pociejewski (three 3-pointers) added 11 points and 3 rebounds for the hosts while teammate Erin Ross scored 8 points with a pair of 3-pointers.
