Prospect's girls basketball team was not all that thrilled with its play on Saturday at the 24th annual McDonald's Shootout in Villa Park.

"That loss to Wheaton Warrenville South (61-46) left kind of a sour taste," said Knights coach Ashley Graham.

So the taste of victory felt good on Tuesday in Glenview.

Junior Taylor Will scored a game-high 18 points and classmate Catherine Sherwood added 16 as Prospect (17-4) topped host Glenbrook South 40-38 in the nonconference girls basketball game.

Senior Mallory Gonzalez (4 points) had the Knights' only 3-pointer and classmate Marissa Pacini added a bucket.

"I thought we did an excellent," said Graham, whose team trailed by 3 points at intermission. "We did nice job coming out in the third quarter. Our defensive pressure was excellent the whole game."

The Knights have been held to 40 or less points only twice all season.

"Credit to Glenbrook South," Graham said. "We only scored 40 points. They played us 1-3-1 and we hadn't seen that since Dundee-Crown.

"I thought we attacked it well and we made a few adjustments at half. It was a really big win after the tough loss Saturday. Credit goes to the kids. They really put forth a great amount of effort."
