Week 7 MVP
After all-tournament props at East Aurora, the 6-foot-3 senior forward scored 45 points in two wins. Schuetz scored a career-high 34 with 6 steals and all 17 of ACCs second-half points in a 51-47 win over Joliet Catholic. He followed with 11 points, 14 rebounds in a 63-60 SCC Blue win over Marmion.
The Blue Devils brought their "A" game (Aarias Austin) to Libertyville. The senior point guard scored 14 of his game- and career-high 24 points in the fourth quarter, helping Warren pull out a 66-59 win. He followed up with 11 and 14 points in victories over Deerfield (66-30) and Round Lake (90-34), respectively.
In a season made more difficult by injuries, Dolan has been a steadying force for Rolling Meadows. The junior forward helped the Mustangs start the new year by scoring a game-best 21 points in an impressive 63-56 victory over Buffalo Grove in Mid-Suburban East play.
Rickette excelled at both ends of the court while leading the Raiders to a 2-1 record. The 5-foot-9 junior guard poured in a personal-high 37 points in an upset Metro Suburban Conference win over Ridgewood. He averaged 25 points for the week while hitting 23 of 27 free throws and totaled 13 steals.
This 6-foot-2 guard sank a pair of 3-pointers in a 10-point performance in a win over Crystal Lake South, but he was just getting warmed up. The senior sank nine 3-pointers a Huntley program record in a 76-51 victory at Prairie Ridge. Wagner connected on his first 6 attempts from long range and finished 9 of 12 from beyond the arc en route to a career-high 32 points.
