BATAVIA – The Crystal Lake South boys basketball team got its first win for new coach Matt LePage, defeating Kaneland, 66-55, on Friday in the Windmill City Classic.
Nick Geske led the Gators with 17 points, including three 3-pointers. Also in double figures for South were Austin Rogers (12), Max Meitzler (10) and Alex Bartusch (10).
The strength of his team, LePage said, is the ability to get scoring out of his whole lineup.
“Every night I think that anyone who steps on the court is capable of scoring,” LePage said. “We have a real balanced attack.”
Also for the Gators, Nick Schiller had eight points.
