She also grabbed 8 rebounds. Rogers followed up with 29 points and 16 rebounds in a victory against Batavia in the DuKane Conference opener.

She followed with 18 points in a win over St. Edward, adding 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocked shots.
Piper Bedell, Vernon Hills: Looking to a snap a three-game losing streak, the Cougars went to their three-year varsity guard for some offense. The senior posted 18 points and 4 rebounds in a 46-30 victory over Maine East, then followed up by equaling her career high of 20 points and grabbing 5 rebounds to lead the Cougars to a 48-39 victory over Barrington.
Megan Murray, Elk Grove: Murray saved her season-best for the Grenadiers' Mid -Suburban League East opener as the 5-foot-5 junior guard scored half of her team's points (23) in a 46-43 win over Buffalo Grove. Murray's big game included three 3-pointers (equaling her season-high) and she went 2-for-2 at the free throw line.
