Boys basketball: Week 11 MVP
Jacobs sophomore Cameron Krutwig has earned Daily Herald boys basketball MVP honors for his recent performance against Crystal Lake South, which helped the Golden Eagles clinch a conference championship.
Cameron Krutwig, Jacobs: This 6-foot-8 sophomore did a little bit of everything in a 61-38 victory at Crystal Lake South last Saturday. The second-year varsity center scored 15 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, blocked 6 shots and made 4 steals and 4 assists in a victory that allowed Jacobs to clinch its first Fox Valley Conference Valley Division title since 2007-08.
Matt Acevedo, Maine West: The Warriors' veteran guard has been drawing double teams all season but has still been effective. He finished with 25 points in a 66-64 win over Maine East, had 21 in a 47-46 loss to Hersey and capped his surge with a career-high 35 on Tuesday in an 84-77 overtime loss at Wheeling.
Ryuji Aoki, Stevenson: Easily overlooked considering his team boasts two Division-I-bound guards, he doesn't start and stands just 5 feet 10, but the junior showed off his shooting skills in a 102-47 win over Mundelein. He scored a career-high 30 points, which included a school-record-tying seven 3-pointers.
Jordan Glasgow, Marmion: The 6-foot-1 senior is now playing point guard for the Cadets, with success. He scored 17 points with 4 assists, 2 steals in a 52-25 nonconference win over Dundee-Crown. The next night Glasgow added 16 points and 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 2 steals in an 82-67 nonleague win over South Elgin.
Baylor Griffin, Naperville North: In two victories the 6-foot-3 senior forward took over when the Huskies needed him most. Griffin scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half of a 81-60 DuPage Valley Conference win over WW South, then tallied 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 54-44 win over Fremd.
