Fremd boys basketball coach Bob Widlowski has always been a proponent of going deep into his bench, regularly playing as many as 10 players. And that approach paid huge dividends for Fremd on Saturday in the Vikings’ 67-53 victory of Hoffman Estates in Palatine.
After a lethargic start, Widlowski quickly went to his bench to spark the Vikings. And they didn’t disappoint. Led by Kyle Sliwa, the Fremd reserves accounted for 18 of Fremd’s 30 first-half points.
