During the fall season, the Lyons Township football team stunned Glenbard West 31-13 to snap the Hilltoppers’ 27-game winning streak. In a role reversal of sorts, on Saturday the underdog Glenbard West boys basketball team hoped to derail the West Suburban Silver Conference-leading LT boys basketball team.

It never happened as the Lions coasted to a 76-38 win in LaGrange. Lyons celebrated its lopsided victory in front of a huge home crowd on Pack the Place Night.

“I really didn’t expect that margin of victory,” said LT coach Tom Sloan. “It was a total team effort. We had a great atmosphere [tonight] with all the support from our fans.”

Lyons (16-2, 7-0) scored nine points to open the game, seized a 19-8 lead after one quarter, and built its lead the rest of the way en route to a sixth straight win and 12th in 13 games. The Lions used their customary balanced attack, placing five players in double figures to overwhelm the Hilltoppers.

Senior guard Mark Sewall led LT with 15 points, followed by Nick Burt (14 points) and Nick Zeisloft, Dylan Fiedler and Henry Wilson with 11 points each. With Eric Powers inactive due to injury, Wilson picked up the slack by scoring seven of his career-high 11 points in the first quarter. Senior guard Spencer Mahoney contributed eight points for the game.

Six-foot-6 forward Michael Mache led Glenbard West (6-11, 1-5) with 14 points, including 10 in the third quarter. Fiedler scored seven points and Burt added six points in the third to counter Mache as the Lions lead swelled to 58-30.

“Glenbard West has some big guys in the post,” Burt said. “We just had to play good team defense and share the ball offensively. We have a bunch of seniors so I don’t think we’re caught up in a lot of the hype and rankings. Our focus is on just improving each game”.

The Lions hold a two-game lead over York and Oak Park in the conference. The Lions travels to Elmhurst on Friday (7:30 p.m.) to take on York. The Dukes feature guard Will Sullivan, one of the premier scorers in the conference.
