Tuesday Nov. 21

(3-0) New Trier 41, (2-1) Loyola 46

It was a low scoring affair as both teams struggled to find the hoop in the first half. Loyola missed countless three and even New Trier’s 6’8″ Ciaran Brayboy missed a few point blank layups.

The shooting troubles turned around in the second half as Loyola started raining three pointers and New Trier followed suit.

New Trier would erase a six point fourth quarter deficit, to win 46-41 while hitting clutch free throws down the stretch.

New Trier’s Griffin Ryan led the Trevians with 12 points. Cirian Brayboy added a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Connor Barrett had a game high 13 points, and Kevin Cunningham added 9 shooting 3-3 from three point range.

(3-0) Niles North 76, (2-1) Lane Tech 60

Once again, Niles North were led by the trio of Dravon Claybourn, Damaria Franklin and Demarion Smith.

Claybourn led all scorers with 29 points and Franklin added a double-double of 18 points, 10 rebounds to go along with four blocked shots.

After shooting  5-6 from the field for 14 points and 7 rebounds, Smith brings his shooting percentage through the first three games of the season up to an astounding 73%.

(2-0) Niles North 82, (1-1) Jones 51

After a sub-par performance in Niles North’s opening game, Damaria Frankin led all scorers with 19 points and added 4 rebounds and 3 assists.

Julius Francellno also had a nice all around performance with 14 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.
