SULLIVAN -- Behind an electric Zach Hrvol, and an off-the-charts fourth quarter of offense, Sullivan came away with a highlight win.
The Redskins beat St. Teresa 70-54, and Sullivan coach Chet Reeder was more than pleased.
"I thought our kids played really well and this was one of our best all-around games," Reeder said. "I felt like we rebounded the ball well, and offensively we played with a purpose tonight."
Hrvol scored 31, making four 3s and shooting 11 of 12 from the line, while grabbing 10 rebounds as well.
"(He) was on fire tonight," Reeder said. "I felt that tonight, he played his best game in a Redskin uniform so far."
Isaiah Bond led St. T with 16 points and JaColby Boston added 11 more.
Sulivan's Ty Molzen had 15 points, collecting his 1,000th point along the way.
"It's a real tribute to the dedication that he has put into the game at such a young age," Reeder said.
Arcola 72, LSA 69
ARCOLA -- Kollin Seaman scored 31 points as Arcola held off LSA in a LOVC Tournament warmup.
After jumping out to a 10-point lead in the first quarter, Arcola saw that disappear in the second when LSA tied the game at halftime.
"We got off to a great start, and then we just kind of relaxed a little bit," Arcola coach Mike Shaffer said. "LSA just wouldn't go away. When they caught up with us, I knew it was going to be a dog fight to the end, and it was."
Parker Nichols scored 19 points to pace LSA, and Shannon Houser said to play the top seed in the LOVC tournament so close was a positive.

"It was a great game, and I think it's a good momentum builder for the rest of the season," Houser said.
It's a quick turnaround for LSA, which plays this morning at 10 a.m. to kick off the LOVC Northwest tournament.
Altamont 80, Patoka 43
PATOKA -- A month ago, Altamont had to hold off Patoka for a four-point win.
On Friday, that was ancient history.
"We were hoping to make a statement," Altamont coach John Niebrugge said. "We knew we could play better than we've played."
Altamont's Adam Mayhaus has one of best games, scoring 28 points. But Niebrugge said Mayhaus' defense on Patoka tough outside shooter Jered Cain, who scored 26, made it better.
"(He) made Jered Cain work for every point. There were maybe three or four layups the whole game." Niebrugge said. "With Mayhaus himself scoring 28, he had a whale of a game."
Monticello 76, Maroa-Forsyth 45
MAROA -- The Trojans' fast-paced offense couldn't get much going against the Sages' stout defense.
After Maroa scored 13 points in the first quarter, Monticello kept squeezing, not allowing as many points any quarter afterward.
"Monticello is good," Maroa coach Robert Kreps said. "They are winning because of their defense. We could not run anything tonight."
Zach Fisher led Monticello's offense with 27 points and Calvin Fisher added 13 more.
