The players from rival schools honored the memory of Brother Rice graduate Andrew Weishar who died at age 21
The stands were filled with blue shirts printed with the number 45. It was Andrew Weishar's number, and they played for him. The longtime rivalry between Brother Rice and Marist was forgotten for several minutes as the two schools came together to recognize a young man lost too soon. Andrew Weishar died in October after a three year long battle with colorectal cancer. The Brother Rice graduate was just 21 years old.

Kevin Walsh is accused of pushing a police officer after a basketball game at Stagg High School.
Although "a healthy rivalry" exists between Andrew and Stagg high schools, incidents such as the Dec. 7 brawl in which one student is accused of pushing a police officer aren't representative of the relationship the District 230 schools share, a district spokeswoman said. In these cases, the "poor decisions" of a small group of students take away from the positive things that go on between Stagg and Andrew, said Carla Erdey, spokeswoman for District 230. "The students work together on a lot of projects in their communities," Erdey said. Kevin P. Walsh, 18, is charged with battery to a police officer, resisting arrest and mob action following a Dec. 7 basketball game at Stagg High School in Palos Hills. Two juveniles also face charges …

Jamila McClinton used her signature spin move to her advantage in the Astros' 41-32 girls regional basketball victory on Monday night. But she knows it's going to take more than one move to keep Shepard going in the playoffs.
Shepard's Jamila McClinton looked like a ballerina instead of a basketball player. She was spinning around Eisenhower's players all night in the Astros' 41-32 girls basktball regional victory on Monday. But for McClinton, her moves are just part of the way she learned to play ball. "It (the spin move) started when I was a little bit younger because I started off playing against boys," she said. "They were always bigger than me, so I had to figure out some way to get it up there. Spinning was what I would always go to." McClinton, a senior forward, led the Astros with 15 points and seven rebounds. She scored three of the five points Shepard was limited to in the third quarter and came up with a big block under the basket to help keep the …
