GLENVIEW — The Glenbrook South girls basketball team cruised to a 60-33 win over Niles West on Friday to remain in the CSL South hunt through the first half of the conference schedule.
The Titans, ranked No. 20 by the Sun-Times, led 17-3 after one quarter and 36-7 at the half before emptying the bench for the final two quarters.
“Defense has been what’s made us go,” said Glenbrook South coach Steve Weissenstein, who won his 400th career game Dec. 28 at Wheaton North’s tournament. “That made us go in the first half (Friday). That’s been our calling card.”
Senior guard Molly McDonagh led all scorers with 12 points. Senior guard Lindsey Oldshue and junior forward Cassandra Palmer each contributed eight points for the Titans (16-3 overall, 4-1 CSL South), who trail No. 15 Evanston in the league standings by a game.
Senior forward Jasmine Townsend finished with eight points for the Wolves (3-12, 1-4).
