Steinhaus (22 points), Libertyville turn back Lake Forest
Josh Steinhaus scored 8 of his season-high 22 points in overtime, and Libertyville's boys basketball team stayed hot with a 65-60 win over visiting Lake Forest in a North Suburban Conference thriller Tuesday night.
It was the fourth win in a row for Libertyville (5-3, 3-0), which got 17 points from Drew Peterson.
Ben Gibson had 22 points for Lake Forest (3-5, 0-3).
"Both teams made some big shots tonight, as it was back and forth for the most part," Libertyville coach Brian Zyrkowski said.
Peterson's second 3-pointer of the fourth quarter came with less than 20 seconds remaining. In OT, Steinhaus hit a big 3 -- his fifth of the game -- and key free throws to seal it.
Chase Eyre had a big night on both ends of the floors, Zyrkowski said, finishing with 12 points. Libertyville also got 9 points from Travis Clark.
