Lyons limited Kenwood to seven points in the third quarter and only one basket in the first four minutes of the fourth quarter to come from behind in the non-conference win in La Grange. The game featured an intra-family showdown between second cousins: Kenwood coach Jim Maley and Lyons junior guard Harrison Niego (15 points).

TURNING POINT

Lyons (12-6) took its first lead of the game, 35-33, on senior guard Jim Cullen's third 3-pointer near the end of the third quarter. The Lyons' defense took over to begin the fourth as Nick Robinson scored the only basket for Kenwood on a 3-pointer during a 15-5 Lyons run.
