Reid Berman, a senior point guard, had 10 assists and nine points in the victory at Loyola. The Amherst recruit scored an acrobatic lay-up and assisted on another basket on consecutive possessions early in the fourth quarter.
New Trier senior Aaron Rosen made a heads-up switch on a screen on the perimeter that prevented St. Viator sophomore Mark Falotico from getting a clean look on a three-pointer that would have tied the game in the final seconds. Jordan Thomas then made one free throw to secure the Trevians’ ninth win in a row.
“I made some mistakes on screens earlier in the game, but I was happy I could help the team win.” — Rosen
