    Third-quarter run sparks Glenbard S. past Elgin
    Brian Schaumburg

    The Glenbard South boys basketball came out off the locker room after halftime Tuesday night ready to forget about a lackluster first half.

    Elgin coach Mike Sitter said his team didn't come out for the final two quarters and play with much of an effort.

    The Raiders scored 8 points in a 9-second span in the third quarter during a 16-0 run that turned a 9-point deficit into a 7-point lead. Glenbard South led by at least 4 the rest of the way in a 74-65 victory at Chesbrough Field House in Elgin.

    "We played with a little bit more confidence," Glenbard South coach Wade Hardtke said. "We were able to throw some pressure on them and I think that was the turning point."

    The Maroons (9-18) led 36-27 after a Donte Harper 3-pointer with 6:16 remaining in the third quarter. After a Mark Murbach basket made it 36-29, Tyler Scott had a steal, made a layup, was fouled and hit the free throw with 5:45 to go in the third. Scott stole the ensuing inbounds pass and again completed a 3-point play 4 seconds later. He stole the inbounds pass again and assisted on Chaun Rickette's basket with 5:36 remaining as the Raiders (14-11) scored 8 points in 9 seconds to take a 37-36 lead.

    Scott had another steal on Elgin's next possession and that led to an Alex Jeske layup with 5:22 left in the third for a 39-36 Glenbard South lead.

    "We're physically incapable of playing four quarters of basketball," Sitter said. "We played a good first half and then came out and didn't feel like playing in the second half. I refuse to coach effort. I can coach Xs and Os."

    Rickette and Jeske each hit a pair of free throws to cap the 16-0 run as the Raiders took a 43-36 lead with 3:02 remaining in the third quarter.

    Glenbard South led by 5, 49-44, heading into the fourth and increased the led to 10, 54-44, 1:15 into the quarter. Desmond Douglas' 3-point play with 4:52 remaining got Elgin within 4, 56-52. That was as close as the Maroons would get. The Raiders hit 13 of 15 free throws in the final quarter.

    Jeske led Glenbard South with 21 points, 19 in the second half. Rickette added 18 points and 10 rebounds. John Marks had 11 points.

    Isaish Butler scored a game-high 24 points, 17 in the first half, and had 6 rebounds for the Maroons. Desmond Sanders finished with 11 points.
