Stagg 66, Andrew 35: Kevin White and Max Strus took turns driving around the Thunderbolts in the Chargers' big win Friday night in Tinley Park.
The Skinny: The question of how far Stagg’s two junior guards have come in a short time span was answered in the Chargers’ 66-35 boys basketball victory over Andrew on Friday night at the Thunder Dome in Tinley Park.

The Skinny: Glorind Lisha was Mr. Sparkplug. Jubril Adekoya was Mr. Stopper. Lisha and Adekoya combined forces to lead Andrew in a 63-45 boys basketball victory over Lincoln-Way West at The Thunderdome in Tinley Park on Friday night.
