Argo took advantage of the unique opportunity Friday to show Richards what the Argonauts are capable of just three days before the teams meet in the playoffs.
The Krob brothers, Dustin and Ryan, scored 23 and 19 points, respectively, and visiting Argo topped Richards 85-75 in the teams’ South Suburban Red finale.
The two will meet again at 6 p.m. Monday at Richards in a Class 4A regional quarterfinal.
“This was a big game for us,” Dustin Krob said. “We’re in their heads now and we know we can beat them now.”
Tyler Mitchell (17 points, 8 rebounds) and Jalyn Turner (16 points, 10 rebounds) also had big games for Argo (11-14, 7-6).
Josh Meier (15 rebounds) and Dedrick Shannon Jr. (8 rebounds) poured in 25 points each for Richards (16-10, 8-5), which still won the Red title outright thanks to Reavis’ loss to Eisenhower.
“I couldn’t care less about (the Red title) right now,” Richards coach John Chappetto said. “I’m worried about how we can possibly beat Argo. They exploited all our weaknesses.”
Argo, which used an 11-3 fourth-quarter run to go up 71-62 and take control for good, finished 32-of-55 from the field.
