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 couldnt pinpoint what it was. I thought we were pretty flat for most of the night.
I feel like we didnt step up as well as we shouldve, 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 didnt start it up for us.
Palatine (9-8) struggled offensively for three quarters, shooting just 28 percent from the floor and trailing 33-26.
