    The host Redhawks then tried to focus a little more on the Wheaton Warrenville South sharpshooter in the second half, but the points kept on coming.

    Looking for clues in league races

    A lot about boys and girls basketball, specifically how some of these tight conference races in DuPage County are going to turn out. Eyes on Five is just as confused as you about the most heated races, but it'll take little more than a wink of a wait to get to the bottom of it all.
