Week 8 MVP
Harvey helped the Rams claim sole possession of first place in the DVC by scoring 26 points in a 58-56 win over West Aurora. The 6-foot-2 senior guard added 24 points in a win over Plainfield East. In the two games Harvey shot 18 of 26 from the field and made all 8 free throw attempts.
The 6-foot-1 junior guard hit a 3-point shot with 24 seconds remaining in overtime to defeat crosstown rival St. Charles North 56-55 in the Upstate Eight River. Adduci, who scored all 6 of the Saints’ points in overtime, finished with a game-high 27 points, including five 3s and 8-of-11 foul shooting.
The Golden Eagles needed a boost and they got it from their 6-foot-4 senior forward, who hit a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer to send Jacobs’ game against rival Dundee-Crown into overtime. Ledinsky then hit two more 3-pointers in the extra sessions and scored 20 points on the night as the Eagles outlasted D-C 76-66 in double OT. Ledinsky then came back with 14 points in an 80-67 win over DeKalb at the Hononegah MLK Shootout.
The junior guard gave new meaning to the term "Lipp service." In helping the Wildcats upset visiting Zion-Benton 63-60, Lipp poured in a game-high 26 points. He netted 12, including two 3-pointers, in the third quarter and added 10 more in the fourth. His performance helped Libertyville snap a four-game losing streak.
The senior led a balanced Wheeling scoring effort with a game-high 16 points along with 3 rebounds and 3 assists in a 62-54 victory at Elk Grove, the Wildcats’ first triumph in divisional play this season.
