Massive week for boys' basketball

What a difference a week makes – yet again.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team – riding high after a home win over Rockford on Monday, Feb. 1, only to be cut down in a 63-49 home loss to Litchfield four nights later – is riding high once more.

Faced with a grueling three-game week against a trio of teams with a combined 53-14 record, the Panthers pulled off two wins and nearly earned a clean sweep to improve their own record to what could be called a “red hot” 8-17.

“It was a huge week,” coach Robb DeCorsey said. “After that Litchfield loss, I doubt anyone gave us much of a chance to win two of three last week.

“It just shows what happens when these guys play hard, play together and for each other. These past few games went how I‚Äąthought our whole season would have gone.”
