Boys' hoops earn two much needed wins

As the calendar turned from 2015 to 2016, so did the fortunes of the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team. The Panthers, who entered the new year mired in a four-game losing streak, won two of three games in the first week of January while putting to use some lessons learned at the Tartan Holiday Tournament.

“Maybe that tournament wasn’t as bad as it looked,” head coach Robb DeCorsey said. “We were playing against bigger, stronger, faster teams and that has helped us now that we are playing teams more on our level.”
