Hinsdale South 59, Leyden 36
Hinsdale South used a 31-1 scoring run in the first half in building an insurmountable lead over Leyden in their WSC Gold contest. Leyden (10-9, 1-7) took a 2-0 advantage to start the contest but the Hornets (14-7, 5-3) led 20-3 after a quarter, 36-12 at halftime, and led by 30 points early in the third in cruising to the win.
The Hornets' big scoring run started when they began using their superior length to challenge Leyden’s outside shooters and control the offensive and defensive glass. “We’re very long, which is a good benefit, but teams with a lot of guards can worry us,” South coach Brett Moore said. “Defensively I thought we did a nice job tonight.”
