Boys Basketball-Dundee-Crown breaks through at Jacobs
Dundee-Crown senior Jack Michalski turns 18 today.
The 6-foot-4 forward was 11 the last time the D-C boys basketball team crossed the Fox River and defeated rival Jacobs in Algonquin like his Chargers did Friday night.
Michalski scored 11 of his game-high 19 points in the second half and grabbed 8 of his team's 19 rebounds in a 53-44 Fox Valley Conference road win.
"He's been the heart and soul of our team," Dundee-Crown coach Lance Huber said. "He just doesn't stop. He has a motor and he just keeps going. Our guys feed off of him."
Huber compared the inner drive of Michalski -- also an all-conference football player and a state qualifying high jumper -- to that of 2009 graduate Jeff Beck, who led the Chargers to a fourth-place finish in Class 4A.
"Jeff Beck was like that with his energy and motor," Huber said. "Jack? Man, he's just go, go, go. It's awesome."
