Winners of their last four out of five North Suburban Conference games, the Scouts come into their second to last home game peaking at the right time. On the other hand, the Zee-Bees have lost five of their last six conference contests, with their lone win coming in a recent rivalry matchup with the Waukegan Bulldogs. After a thrilling win over Libertyville, Lake Forest (9-13) arrives with a lot of momentum, especially hoping to carry that over into March’s IHSA Sectional playoffs.

Zion Benton (10-13) defeated the Scouts 44-40 in Zion on January 12, so Coach LaScala’s team will surely be hungry for the revenge win. The Zee-Bees are led by freshmen sensation 6’4” Amar Augillard, who does it all for Zion. He rebounds proficiently and can score from all areas of the floor, so if the Scouts want to defend their home court they’ll need to shut down the multipurpose freshman.

Tonight’s game will go a long way for both sides, as the Lake Zurich Sectional coaches will seed the area’s teams after tonight’s action. After a rough start to conference play, the Scouts have turned it up a notch and another win could really improve their seed, especially considering their likeness in record to Z-B. In their last game against Libertyville, Ben Gibson had a career-high 32 points and Michael Pasquella won it for Lake Forest with a tip-in at the buzzer. They’re still without starting guard Jake Fisher, who remains sidelined with a wrist injury.

Come out to the Competition Gym to support your home Scouts in one of the last opportunities for the Competition Crazies to watch a win.
