Daily Herald report

St. Charles East senior guard Dom Adduci has earned Daily Herald MVP honors for his recent boys basketball performances.

Dom Adduci, St. Charles East: The 6-foot senior guard's 40 points in an 83-50 win over Elgin set a career high for the third time this season. He made eight 3-pointers and 14 of 27 shots overall. Two days earlier he scored 26 points in a 62-47 win over Glenbard West. All told Adduci made 24 of 46 field goal tries including ten 3-pointers.

Ore Arogundade, St. Viator: The Drake-bound senior came through when his team needed him most, scoring 21 points to help the Lions past Hinsdale Central 82-73 in overtime in a matchup of nonconference heavyweights. Arogundade scored twice in the final 18.7 seconds of regulation to force overtime, and became St. Viator's all-time leading scorer with 1,312 points.

Chip Flanigan, Glenbard North: The Panthers pulled out a 62-61 DVC win at Naperville Central behind a perfectly executed play by Flanigan, who scored a game-high 21 points. With two seconds left and his team trailing 61-59, the 6-foot-5 senior snagged a three-quarter-court pass, turned and banked in a 3-pointer as time expired.

Derek Parola, Mundelein: No. 12 popped for 12 3-pointers. The senior guard had a night to remember against Libertyville, despite the Mustangs' 93-81 loss. He scored a career-high 38 points, setting a school record by hitting a dozen 3s in 24 attempts from beyond the arc. He followed up with 39 points in an 84-82 loss to Chicago Little Village.

Jacob Schutta, Burlington Central: This 5-foot-11 shooting guard led the Rockets with 30 combined points in a pair of blowout victories. The senior scored 13 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in a 70-46 victory over Big Northern East rival Richmond-Burton on Friday. The next night he shot 4 of 4 from 3-point range and 6 of 7 overall and led Central with 17 points in a 67-43 win over Kaneland.
