Week 11 MVP
Reed was ready. The sharpshooting junior guard came off the bench to spark the host Wildcats’ 87-80 upset of rival Mundelein on senior night, as he shot a crazy 8 of 8 from the floor, sinking five 3-pointers. He finished with a season-high 25 points and contributed 3 steals, as well.
One reason 20-win Hampshire is competing for a conference title in the season’s final two weeks is the steady play of point guard Ryan Cork. The 6-foot-1 junior opened the week by scoring 19 points in Hampshire’s 58-53 nonconference victory at South Elgin. Cork later dished out 4 assists and scored 19 more points in a 76-57 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division victory over Grayslake North.
The 6-foot-6 sophomore swingman totaled 29 points, 19 rebounds and 8 assists in a pair of games last week. He scored 11 points with 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in a loss to Larkin. Geneva bounced back with a 69-62 win over St. Viator behind Navigato’s 18 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists.
Prospect’s Devin O’Hara produced his best game when his team need him most. The Knights’ 6-foot-4 senior produced 16 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists in a 70-68 double overtime victory against visiting Elk Grove which clinched the MSL East title for Prospect — its fifth in the last six years.
The 6-foot-3 senior guard scored a personal-high 29 points in a 66-46 win over Kaneland. Roy made four 3-point baskets and hit 9 of 12 free throws. That came on the heels of a 55-42 win at Walther Lutheran for the Warriors’ fourth straight SCC title overall. Roy added 4 points, 3 assists and 3 steals.
