One of the problems for the Evanston girls team in an up-and-down basketball season so far has been a tendency to stray from a team approach on offense when it just seems easier to try to beat your opponent 1-on-1 off the dribble.

That problem persisted in the first half of Saturday’s showdown with Loyola Academy, but then the Wildkits all got on the same page in a 39-29 victory that boosted their season record to 7-5.

Twenty-four hours after falling short in an effort to close out one potential victory, Evanston’s basketball team finally found a way Saturday.

Defense delivered a 49-39 win over visiting Loyola Academy at Beardsley Gym as the Wildkits (7-3) limited the Ramblers to just three field goals in the second half.

Coach Mike Ellis’ squad converted 7-of-10 free throw attempts to keep Loyola at bay in the final quarter on a night where both teams only managed to score in spurts.

Evanston’s wrestlers haven’t won the Central Suburban League South division championship since back in 2004.

And if they’re going to accomplish that feat this year, the Wildkits are going to need some help after bowing to defending champion New Trier 36-32 in a key dual meet matchup Thursday night in Winnetka.
