A pair of Lake County senior point guards had record-breaking nights for their respective schools Tuesday.

Both Grant's Logan Lewis and Grayslake North's Jamal Thomas became their school's all-time assists leader.

Lewis, a three-year varsity player, recorded 10 assists (and no turnovers) in Grant's 71-49 win over visiting Round Lake. That gave Lewis 392 assists, breaking the 37-year-old school record previously held by Pat Jaranson.

"Honored to have been recognized as Grant's all-time assist leader, a record that represents the hard work and selflessness of my teammates," Lewis said on Twitter.

John Kerr had 21 points and 14 rebounds, as Grant improved to 18-8 and 12-1 in the Northern Lake County Conference with its sixth win in a row and 11th in 12 games. Mike Huff added 16 points, Andy Kaye had 12 points and 8 rebounds, and Ben Kusiak contributed 10 points and 9 rebounds.

Thomas scored 32 points and dished out 11 assists (his ninth double-double of the season) to lead Grayslake North to a 73-59 win over visiting Antioch. In just his second season after transferring from Michigan, Thomas has 339 assists in just 51 games, five more assists than Aidan Einloth totaled in his four-year varsity career.

Ryan Connolly added 21 points and Jack Van Reck had 10, as the Knights improved to 16-7 and 8-4 in the NLCC.
