On senior night at Wheeling, Jeremy Stephani showed he belongs among the best boys basketball players in the school’s history.
Elk Grove won the Mid-Suburban East finale, getting 12 points apiece from Tyler Ingebrigtsen and Bryan Alcazar in a 69-53 decision.
Stephani led all scorers with 21 points, including a pair of 3’s. That pushed him past the 1,500-point threshold in career scoring, as he now has 1,516 and will end up as the leading scorer in the program’s history.
Stephanie is averaging 24 points this season. Again Elk Grove, his best period was the fourth, when he made a 3-pointer and went 4-for-4 at the foul line for the Wildcats.
Ola Arogundade had 15 points for Wheeling, while Joell Melendez contributed 10 for Elk Grove.
Christian Liberty 61, Elgin Academy 58: Wes Swiderek made three 3’s and had a team-best 18 points to help the visiting Chargers pull out a victory. Sam Silva had 13 points and Paul Weiss 12 for Wheaton Academy.
Elgin Academy sophomore Dietrich Robinson made five 3’s and finished with a game-high 38 points.
