A.J. Fish scored a game-high 25 points to lead Grayslake North’s boys basketball team to a 76-57 win over visiting Johnsburg in Fox Valley Fox Division action Tuesday night.

Danny Mateling added 13 points, including three 3-pointers, for Grayslake North (10-5, 1-1). Nick Carmody and sophomore Dom DiProva had 11 points each. DiProva, who had his season-high point total, sank three 3s too.

Fish, who made 12 shots from the floor, scored 24 points in the first three quarters in helping the Knights build a 60-39 lead.

Glenbrook South 49, Palatine 46: For three quarters, there was admittedly something missing from a Palatine squad that won 9 of its first 16 games.

The Pirates trailed by as many as 9 in the third quarter against Glenbrook South after taking an early 5-point lead.

And while they made it interesting with some hot shooting in the final minute, Palatine ultimately suffered a 49-46 setback to Glenbrook South in nonconference action Tuesday.

“There was something missing tonight,” said Palatine coach Eric Millstone. “We couldn’t pinpoint what it was. I thought we were pretty flat for most of the night.”

“I feel like we didn’t step up as well as we should’ve, me and everybody else,” said Palatine guard Greg Grana, who led the hosts with 16 points and 7 rebounds. “Defense leads to offense. Tonight, the defense just didn’t start it up for us.”

Palatine (9-8) struggled offensively for three quarters, shooting just 28 percent from the floor and trailing 33-26.
