Hillcrest 63, Rich South 57
Hillcrest boys are on the same path as their counter-parts, the Lady
Hawks as they knocked off their cross-town rivals 63-57.
“We want to have a trophy to go next to each other,’’
forward Eric Gaines said amid the celebration of players and fans on the
court. “That’s our goal.’’
The Hawks were led by Gaines, who buried 18, followed by
Herb Offord, who knocked down 13.
“We want to try and be like our girls and get Downstate,’’
forward Herb Offord said. “They’ve been telling us it’s our turn to get No.
1 because they couldn’t.’’
Hillcrest will face Robeson in the UIC Supersectional on
Tuesday @ 6pm.
The game was tied at 49 midway through the fourth quarter
when the Hawks put together a 9-3 run which secured the victory.
Hillcrest defeated Rich South last year for the regional
championship at Hillcrest, so the Stars had the revenge factor.
Macari Brooks led Rich South with 13 points followed by
Tyrone Allen and Darryl Hervy, who both had 10.

Rich South 57, T.F. North 51
The Stars are still shining in the Class 3A playoff run as they defeat
In this contest, an unlikely player gave them the push
they needed... and that player was Kendrick Evans, who came off the
bench and scored all 8 of his points in the fourth quarter.
"We came out in the fourth quarter, and we knew it
was time to step up and start making some plays," Evans said. "I felt
like I could get to the hoop, and I just attacked the rim."
The Meteors played a tough game as they tied the game at
41-41 when standout, senior Sean Montgomery put in an easy lay-up, but
down the stretch turnovers kept them from scoring.
Montgomery led all scorers with 22 points. He also had 12

Macari Brooks was the high man for South with 12,
followed by Tyrone Allen, who added 11.
As a whole, the Stars are looking forward to Friday
night's match-up against Hillcrest since last season when the Hawks
eliminated their playoff run in the regionals.
"Hillcrest knocked us out of regional play last
season," Evans said. "We've been hoping we could get them again. I know
we've been keeping an eye on them and they've been keeping an eye on
The sectional championship is scheduled for tip-off

Homewood-Flossmoor 55, Thornton 46
The Vikings kept fighting and didn't bow down
against last season Class 4A representative, Thornton, as they come up
with a big victory 55-46. As the sports clique' goes it's tough to beat
someone 3 times in a given season... This was so true Wednesday night.
The Vikings' play the Wildcats on the homecourt in front
of a packed gym. This seemed to give them the little extra they needed
as Tim Williams, knocked down 20 and
sophomore guard Tyrone
Sherman added 17.

"Things changed for us on Dec. 29 after a loss to St. Joseph at (the
Proviso West Holiday Tournament)," Vikings coach Jim McLaughlin said.
"We started to figure out that we weren't as good as we thought, and we
had to make a huge commitment to the defensive side."
Plus, Thornton just didn't play even close to their season averages at
every spot. They shot 15-for-60 from the field; 1-for-15 from the behind
the arc; 11-for-22 from the charity stripe; and were out-rebounded
"I kept hearing my guys talking about how long they were while battling
for rebounds, but we missed too many free throws," Thornton coach Troy
Jackson said. "Even with how poorly we played, if we just make a high
percentage of our free throws, it's a different game."
Marquette-bound Reggie Smith finished with 16.
