St. Viator hosted Evanston on Saturday afternoon in a battle of two of the better programs over the last decade from the Chicago suburbs.  Both teams have quality squads again this year.  Evanston jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first couple minutes of the game behind their defense and perimeter shooting.  St. Viator made a valiant effort to come back, but it wasn’t quite enough as they would fall to Evanston by a final of 59-51.  Here are our 5 Takeaways: Evanston vs St. Viator!


Jaylin Gibson is Mr. Versatile

Evanston 2021 shooting guard Jaylin Gibson is one of the ultimate stat sheet stuffers in the state of Illinois.  He is such a well-rounded player.  In this particular game he lived at the free throw line.  The top 10 junior is a tough slasher that plays with physicality at the rim.  Best move of the day was on one drive late in the third quarter when he shook his man for a score in the lane.  Capable spot up shooter.  Went for 15 points.  He can defend all three perimeter positions at a high level.
