There was little doubt after a half Cary-Grove would defeat Streamwood.

It was only a matter of whether the Trojans would break any tournament records in the process.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Defending Hinkle Holiday Classic champion Cary-Grove and leading scorer Beau Frericks got off to a torrid start in an eventual 87-61 victory in Algonquin Saturday.

Frericks, a savvy senior guard committed to Lewis, scored 18 first-quarter points as Cary-Grove (9-1) bolted to a 27-18 lead over Streamwood (4-6), a team that presses and plays up-tempo all 32 minutes.

Frericks seemed within reach of the tournament single-game scoring record of 45 points set by Marian Central's Jake Everly against St. Edward in 2010. He had 25 points at halftime and 31 after three quarters.

"We try to stick to team first," Cary-Grove junior Ryan Weaver said, "but when Beau gets hot we know what to do: get him the ball."

The back-and-forth pace played into the hands of a natural scorer like Frericks.

"We know they like to run and gun so we knew we were going to get open shots on the offensive end," Frericks said. "We just had to play decently on the defensive end. It was fun. I like it that way. You know you're going to get shots and open looks as long as you run to the right spots and play your game."

Frericks did not score in the fourth quarter. He was taken out with 5:30 remaining with his team ahead by 28 points. His 31 points on 13-of-23 shooting fell shy of his career high of 33.

"He was able to do whatever he wanted out there," Streamwood coach Kent Payne said. "We didn't shoot it very well so we couldn't keep it competitive. That's pretty much the bottom line for us."

Cary-Grove senior Frank Jakubicek scored 10 of his 25 points and grabbed 4 of his 10 rebounds in the third quarter to boost the Trojans to a 79-49 lead heading to the final period.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The tournament record of 102 points in a game set by Mundelein in 2010 was not endangered, thanks to a running clock throughout the fourth quarter.

The victory was the sixth straight for the Trojans since a loss to York on Nov. 29.

"We've had a nice run since that York loss," Cary-Grove coach Adam McCloud said. "Since then we've been getting better and better."

Streamwood sank 10 3-pointers. Junior guard Zach Marquez sank a pair of 3-pointers en route to 15 points. Junior Kyle Maybrun added 12 points

Senior forward Drew Szydlo finished with 10 rebounds and 4 points for Cary-Grove.
