Minooka basketball bounces back to beat Romeoville
JOLIET — After a tough 10-point loss Monday against Providence in pool play at the WJOL tournament at St. Francis University, the Minooka boys basketball team was able to bounce back, defeating Romeoville 52-36 to even their record at 1-1.
There was sloppy play from both teams early, as both Minooka and Romeoville ran into foul trouble in the first quarter. The Spartans went up 3-2 early on in the quarter before the Indians came back, led by senior Jake Hogen. Minooka went on a 9-4 run to close out the frame to take an 11-7 advantage. Hogen had nine of his game high 18 points for the Indians in the quarter.
"We really wanted to start out well, especially after losing Monday," Hogen said. "We played a really good team (in Providence) on Monday and we felt we needed to come out and dominate."
