Daily Herald report

St. Charles North senior guard Alex Goetz has earned Daily Herald MVP honors for his recent boys basketball performances.

Alec Goetz, St. Charles North: The senior guard scored 27 of St. Charles North's 49 points in a 49-46 Upstate Eight Conference River Division victory over Elgin. He hit four 3-point shots and added 4 rebounds, 2 steals. Goetz then scored 17 points with 2 more steals and 4 assists in an 87-66 nonconference win over Peoria Richwoods.

Matthew Bridges, Hampshire: This 6-foot-2 forward poured in the points, mostly from the lane, in consecutive games. Bridges led all scorers with 26 points in a losing cause against South Elgin on Wednesday. Three days later he scored 20 of his game-best 25 points in the second half as Hampshire won 72-59 at Woodstock North.

Kilian Brown, St. Francis: The 6-foot-4 senior forward averaged 18 points and 10.7 rebounds in a three-win week for the Spartans. Heading the list were a pair of double-doubles -- 20 points and 15 rebounds in a 74-67 overtime win at IC Catholic Prep, and 21 points and 10 rebounds to help beat Glenbard South 71-67.

Mark Falotico, St. Viator: After missing the first half of the season while recovering from injury, Falotico has steadily become a more important part of the St. Viator's attack. He scored 20 points in a victory at Notre Dame, and had 9 in the second quarter as the Lions took control and stayed there in a 80-58 decision that helped them stay in the East Suburban Catholic Conference title hunt at 6-1.

Robby Nardini, Vernon Hills: A consistent 20-point-per-night scorer, the junior guard hit that mark in the third quarter alone against Round Lake. His thrilling third also included him dishing out 5 assists. He finished with a career-high 32 points and 7 assists, as the Cougars won 84-66.
