Daily Herald report

Jasmine Sangster scored a career-high 26 points, as Grant's girls basketball team defeated visiting Glenbrook North 76-57 in nonconference action Tuesday night.

Sangster, a sophomore guard and second-year varsity player, hit 11 shots, including a 3-pointer. Grant (7-12), which hit its season-high point total, also received 20 points, including three 3s, from Kaylie Kanzler.

Taylor Drake and Jenna Pecorini (two 3-pointers) chipped in 9 and 8 points, respectively, for the Bulldogs. Kaitlyn Wold also made two 3s for Grant.

Stevenson loses twice: On Monday at DeKalb, the Patriots fell to the host school 47-39 and Oswego 41-38 in their last of four games in the two-day MLK tournament.

Sophia Way and Taylor Buford were named to the 10-player all-tournament team in the eight-team field for Stevenson (15-7). Buford and Way scored 16 and 10 points, respectively, against Oswego, which led 17-14 after one quarter and 28-20 at halftime. Janine Fajardo scored 5 points, despite playing only about a quarter, coach Tom Dineen said, after turning her ankle against DeKalb earlier in the day.

Ashley Richardson scored a team-high 12 points against DeKalb, while Way had 10. Buford tallied 8 points.

"I thought (Monday) was the opposite of Saturday," said Dineen, whose Patriots won a pair of games Saturday to stretch their winning streak to seven games. "Saturday we played well, (Monday) not so well. I thought the tournament itself was very good. There were lots of positive in going out there. I thought both were winnable ballgames (Monday). We just didn't get it done."

Grayslake North splits: On Monday at Washington in central Illinois, the Knights wrapped up play in the two-day MLK tournament by losing to Champaign Centennial 50-41 before defeating Illinois Valley Central 50-43.

Washington won the tournament going 3-1. Grayslake North's Kendall Detweiler was named to the five-player all-tournament team.
