Saxons defeat visiting Hoffman Estates 56-52...
Senior Jon Cawley led Schaumburg with 17 points. Grant Monroe scored 13 points and 6-4 sophomore Blake Mueller added eight for the Saxons (6-1). Nick Pahl led Hoffman Estates (3-3) with 15 points and sophomore Tom Dombrowski added 14.
The Hawks played without their best player, 6-3 senior Michael McGahee. He's expected back for the next game.
A number of young players played very well for Hoffman Estates. Keep an eye on freshman point guard Joe Valadez and sophomore Luke Mead (Brian's brother). Dombrowski was the best player on the court. He fouled out with two minutes to play in the fourth quarter, a crippling blow for the Hawks.
