Finally, the phrase “Happy New Year” has meaning in the Sandburg boys basketball locker room.

The Eagles put their best game of the season together on Feb. 8, a Friday festival of good shooting and hard rebounding that accounted for a 68-52 victory over Lincoln-Way East.

With that effort, featuring all five starters in double figures for the first time this season, Sandburg broke its seven-game losing streak in its penultimate home game of the campaign, advancing to 11-14 overall, 2-6 in the SouthWest Suburban Conference Blue.
