Behind a barrage of 3-pointers from Pete Davis and Stefon Jauregui, Highland Park beat Jesuit 83-76 on Tuesday at Walsh Gym.
Davis and Jauregui combined for 60 points, sinking 13 three-pointers combined to lead the Scots to the nondistrict win. The two teams collectively made 25 three-point shots.
Jesuit (2-1) lead for most of the first half, but behind the hot shooting from the Scots backcourt, HP (3-3) went on a 12-0 run at the end of the third quarter to tie the score at 62-62.
“We’ve worked on getting them open,” said HP head coach David Piehler. “The atmosphere was amazing here and we responded really well.”
