A Tuesday Night Special: Mander helps JCA overcome Lincoln-Way Central for ninth straight victory

Mander went hard to the basket and scored 23 points Tuesday night as Joliet Catholic used a 13-0 run in the fourth quarter to beat nonconference foe Lincoln-Way Central, 67-55, in a battle between two of the top teams in the Joliet area.
