Seneca beats Lisle in boys hoops to lock up league title
In area boys basketball action in recent days, Seneca defeated Lisle to claim sole possession of the Interstate Eight Conference title.
In a makeup game from mid-January, the Fighting Irish came away with the Interstate Eight Conference victory to clinch the league title outright.
“A very physical game. ... Lisle played hard but the boys kept their composure and continued to attack the rim,” Seneca coach Russell Witte said.
Carter Gallick led the Irish with 21 points against the Lions. Conlan Callahan added 18 and Alex Bott had 12.
Grant Park 29
Kyle Robison had 24 points to lead the Panthers while Tristan Noonan and Blake Marks added 12 and 10 points, respectively.
“We played a nice defensive game, showing Grant Park some different looks to try and take them out of their comfort zone,” GSW coach Chris Gibson said. “Any time you can hold a varsity team to 40 points or fewer, you know it’s a good defensive game.”
In a nonconference game, the Comets got the victory.
“We came out with some energy tonight,” R-C coach Mark Porter said. “We shot the ball very well from behind the 3-point line ... if we do that, we are a much more difficult team to play against.”
