Maggie Mocchi or Mr. Magoo?

Buffalo Grove’s Northwestern-bound guard Maggie Mocchi admitted that she couldn’t play at 100 percent Monday night in the Class 4A Mundelein Sectional semifinal. Mocchi could barely see.

The All-Stater slept with her contacts in Saturday night and developed an eye infection. Mocchi’s eyes were noticeably red and watery after the 57-41 victory. She started the game wearing her prescription glasses, but then went against her doctor’s orders by placing her contacts back in between the first and second quarter break. How did she do? You decide.

Mocchi did not take a shot in the first quarter. She scored in every other quarter, finishing with nine points on 4-of-7 shooting and 1-of-2 at the free-throw line. She had five rebounds and all four of her fouls came in the second half. Mocchi’s scoring average this season is 14.3 ppg.

Mocchi said she hopes her eye infection will be cured by Thursday night’s sectional final game.
