Joliet 62, Schaumburg 52

D. J. Dantzler’s signature shot is a rarity in the high school game these days. Joliet’s six-foot guard has mastered the mid-range jumper. He scored 21 points for the Steelmen, draining six jumpers.

“A lot of people say the mid-range game is lost,��? Dantzler said. “Everyone likes to shoot the three. That jumper makes me a better college prospect.��?

Joliet (5-4) opened the second quarter with a 19-3 run to lead 31-17. A basket from Grant Monroe cut the lead to 54-40 with 2:53 to play in the game, but the Steelmen shot 6 of 8 from the free throw line to seal the win.

Monroe and Brandon Moneyhun each scored 15 for the Saxons (8-3).

Joliet and Schaumburg played each other at the Hillcrest Shootout on Dec. 16. The Saxons won 56-54, it was the last game for both teams, who played rare back-to-back games.
