Jordyn Hughes' game-high 13 points led a balanced attack, and Warren's girls basketball team beat host Lake Forest 58-40 in North Suburban Conference action Friday night to reach the 20-win mark.

The Blue Devils last won 20 games in the 2011-12 season.

Warren (20-4, 8-3) avenged a December loss, after also beating Lake Forest (18-9, 7-4) in its Blue Devil Classic.

Kaylen Dickson's spinning bank shot beat the first-half buzzer and put the Blue Devils up 26-19. It was Dickson's first basket and seemed to boost her confidence, as she scored 7 points, including a 3-pointer, in the third quarter. Warren took control in the third, outscoring the hosts 24-12 to take a 50-31 lead into the fourth.

Rebekah Foley and Dickson finished with 12 and 11 points, respectively, while Dana Lundtveit had 9 points and was a force on the boards for the Blue Devils.

Lake Forest was led by Grace Tirzmalis with 11 points and Ellie Pearson with 10.

Stevenson 61, Mundelein 49: Madison Wicklund led all scorers with 19 points, as the North Suburban Conference leaders won again.

Ashley Richardson added 17 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, for host Stevenson (18-5, 10-1). Klaire Steffens (13 points) and Kiana Cencula (10, two 3-pointers) also scored in double figures for the winners.

Mundelein (11-15, 3-8) received 15 points from Sarah Ouimet and 12 (two 3-pointers) from Morgan Frank.

Maine West 59, Vernon Hills 42: The visiting Cougars fell to the Warriors for the second time this season in Central Suburban North action.

Kayla Caudle had 15 points and 18 rebounds for Vernon Hills (11-12, 6-2). Becky Bahlmann added 13 points and 4 rebounds, and Katie Burrows had 10 points and 5 boards.

"We put ourselves in a good position by cutting a 12-point halftime lead to 7 at the end of the third quarter," Cougars coach Paul Brettner said. "Credit Maine West for stretching out the score to start the fourth. Coach (Kim) deMarigny does a great job, and they have some very good players."

Lake Zurich 51, Zion-Benton 32: McKenna Zobel scored 20 points to lead the host Bears, who improved to 11-12 and 7-4 in the North Suburban.
