Belleville West solved some early bugaboos and turned into a dominant beast to avenge three straight Morris Shootout championship losses, though this game against Bolingbrook had so much more on the line.

The Maroons (33-4) earned a 72-60 win over Bolingbrook to continue its IHSA Class 4A title defense.

The Raiders (24-8) led 10-4 in the first quarter, in which it forced seven Maroons turnovers, but West closed on a 13-4 run over the last 2:27 to claim a 17-14 lead. They’d never look back, either.

Here are the 10 best things from Tuesday’s contest.
