SHARE Matthew Meier, Naperville Central upset Plainfield East

Everyone was waiting for Plainfield East star Aaron Jordan to take over the game.

Instead, Naperville Central’s Matthew Meier seized control.

The junior guard utilized the moves that the Illinois-bound Jordan is known for — driving to the basket for pull-up jumpers or layups and drawing fouls — to score 14 of his game-high 22 points in the fourth quarter in leading the host Redhawks to a 47-43 upset victory on Tuesday.
