Fremd's boys basketball team protected its lead in the Mid-Suburban West with a dominant showing Friday.

The host Vikings topped Hoffman Estates 57-16, prompting coach Bob Widlowski and his crew to head for the record books about a possible fewest-points-allowed record.

In any case, he was pleased with the all-around effectiveness of his 16-0 team's performance.

"We played a complete game at both ends of the floor," Widlowski said. "We had 12 kids score, and I thought our effort was consistent the whole way through."

Brian Dompke had a game-high 12 points, while Kyle Sliwa finished with 11 and Shaan Patel 9 for the Vikings.

Junior guard Marshall Davis had 8 points, including a pair of 3s, to lead Hoffman Estates (6-9, 1-4).

Fremd improved to 5-0 in the MSL West and next hosts Conant on Friday at 6 p.m.

Prospect 64, Elk Grove 44: David Swedura scored a team-high 20 points to help the host Knights (13-4, 4-1) keep their share of the Mid-Suburban East lead with Hersey.

Deerfield 51, Maine West 50: The visiting Warriors dropped a heartbreaker on the road in Central Suburban North play.

St. Viator 56, Marian Central 33: The Lions stayed perfect in the East Suburban Catholic, improving to 6-10 overall and 3-0 in the league with a win on the road.

Sam Ohlrich was the top scorer for the Hurricanes with 13 points.

Marist defeated Marian Catholic on Friday, and St. Patrick edged Benet. That leaves St. Viator in a first-place tie for the league lead with St. Patrick.
