"I was disappointed with how we played and disappointed in how we competed," Brost said. "The caveat is we got a W when we didn't play well.

The young Bolingbrook point guard has University of Illinois recruiting him while he impresses his coaches and teammates alike.
Freshman year terrifies many students, but Prentiss Nixon is taking the challenging year head on. The Jane Addams Middle School-product has already made the varsity basketball team at Bolingbrook High School as a shooting guard and has the prestigious University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign trying to recruit him. All this attention might be challenging for a youngster, but Nixon is humble throughout. “I just can’t get big-headed,” said the 6-foot Nixon, who has been to Champaign three times in the last two months. “Even though I’m a freshman and getting looked at, I have to stay humble and keep doing what I do to make myself, teammates and the program better.” Nixon played AAU basketball for the Illinois Wolves from 5th through 7th grade…
