Stevenson Soph Zimny No Longer a Secret to Foes Meadows' Kwiatkowski Rings 'Em Up


McGraw, Patricia Babcock, Maciaszek, Marty, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Stevenson coach Pat Ambrose wishes he could keep his little secret forever.

But he knows that if sophomore point guard Greg Zimny keeps playing the way he did Friday night against Mundelein, that won't be possible.

"Let's not tell anyone we've got him up on varsity," joked Ambrose, who promoted Zimny from the sophomore team over the holidays. "No one needs to know that, do they?" It's too late now.

Zimny's impact in Stevenson's 52-45 win over Mundelein was huge.

He came off the bench to hit four 3-pointers, including three in the second half that kept Stevenson in the game.

"He played really well for us," Ambrose said. "We owe a lot to (sophomore coaches Steve Wood and Matt Edstrom). They've taught him well."

Art of scoring: Rolling Meadows has had its share of high scorers over the years.

Mike Lipnisky averaged 30.8 points in 1990 and still holds the area's single-game mark with 54.

Last year, Rob Garnes had a 47-point game and averaged 25 points en route to breaking Lipnisky's career point record.

The latest to fill the role of filling it up at Meadows is senior Art Kwiatkowski, who is second in the area at 21.3 points a game.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound guard was held to 15 points on just 33 percent shooting in Saturday's loss to Buffalo Grove. But Kwiatkowski has been on the mark most of the year at nearly 55 percent overall and 50 percent on 3-pointers.

"He doesn't force a lot of shots," said Meadows coach Dave Brown. "And he's so strong that he can get a good look at the basket and be off-balance and still recover."

Looking ahead: It will be interesting to see if any significant trends develop out of that Stevenson-Mundelein game.

Of course, Ambrose hopes that his team's win over Mundelein is just a sign of things to come.

"I'm hoping we'll use this game as a springboard for the second half of the conference season," Ambrose said. "I thought we played really well at times and now we have our head above water. Hopefully, we'll stay there. It's better than (the alternative)."

Meanwhile, Mundelein coach Perry Wilhelm would probably love to head in a different direction. His team went just 2-3 in the Jacobs holiday tournament and proceeded to look sluggish against Stevenson in its first game since the break.

"We started the season so well, it was almost like we could do nothing wrong," said Wilhelm, whose team got huge North Suburban Conference wins over Antioch and Warren to take a 4-0 league record into the holiday break. The Stevenson loss was Mundelein's first in league play. "But we've struggled lately. The way we respond to this is going to show a lot about our character. We're going to have to show people what we're made of by handling some adversity."

Quote, unquote: Ambrose on the defensive job his two post players - David Simon and Lamont Holden - did on Mundelein center Graham Beatty, who scored 17 points in his team's loss but was held scoreless in the first half: "I think Graham is probably the best player in the conference but our defense did a pretty good job on him. …
