HP Sports Brief: Boys basketball advances to regional title game with thrilling win over New Trier

The Highland Park (IL) boys basketball team eked out a 44-41 win over New Trier on Wednesday night after David Hammes’ three-point attempt rimmed out at the buzzer for New Trier. With the victory, the team clinched its second back-to-back 20-win seasons in school history and advanced to the regional final against Lake Forest, who they beat in the same game last year and have played twice already this season.
