THE SKINNY

Glenbard West (2-3) took control early thanks to some hot shooting and kept a comfortable lead over Hinsdale South (3-2) for the entire contest. The Hilltoppers sank eight 3-pointers, and their stingy, aggressive defense frustrated Hornets sophomore center Barret Benson.

TURNING POINT

Late in the first half, the Hornets trimmed the Hilltoppers’ lead to 24-18. Senior forward Will Reedy responded with a pair of 3-pointers in the last 40 seconds to put the Hilltoppers up 30-18 going into halftime. The Hornets weren’t able to get close the rest of the game. Reedy finished with nine points—all of them in the first half.

THE STAR

Hilltoppers sophomore forward Justin Pierce led all scorers with 17 points—11 of them in the second half. He sank three 3-pointers in the game and made some key rebounds and steals in the fourth quarter when the Hornets put on the fullcourt press.

BY THE NUMBERS

Senior guard Corey Davis had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Hilltoppers and sophomore guard Brian Cochrane added 12 off the bench. Benson led the Hornets with 16 points and five blocks. The Hornets shot 17-for-57 from the field and 10-for-23 from the free-throw line.

QUOTABLE

“We have a lot of shooters on this team. Will (Reedy)knocked down a lot of big shots and our guards Corey (Davis) and Alex (Pasci) were able to create a lot of plays for us. I can’t take all the credit for this win tonight.” – Pierce on the team effort
