Brad Zaumseil didn’t score from every inch of the court Saturday night — it only seemed that way.
The Barrington senior scored a career-high 31 points to lead the visiting Broncos to a 71-53 victory over Grant. Zaumseil hit 10 of 13 field goals and 7 of 8 free throws. The 6-foot-1 guard nailed 4 of 7 shots from three-point range.
“Brad is so versatile,” said Barrington coach Bryan Tucker, whose team improved to 11-7. “He can score in a lot of ways.
Zaumseil flew to the basket in transition. He hit a number of acrobatic layups, including a reverse in the fourth quarter to boost the lead to 59-48. He scored 18 of his points in the opening half to help the Broncos grab a 41-25 halftime lead.
“I just got hot in the beginning,” Zaumseil said. “I tried to keep going off of that.”
Tucker applauded his star for taking charge.
“That’s what happens when a kid has been on varsity for four years,” Tucker said. “That’s what we expect from him.”
Zaumseil also contributed seven rebounds, seven assists and five steals. The other standouts for Barrington included Zach Bart (21 points) and Scott Nelson (eight assists).
Grant fell to 7-10 despite the work of Ryan Noda (12 points), Tom Blanchette (10 points) and Steve Dunning (nine points).
