Fast Facts: Both teams find themselves in a five-way tie in the MSL West with 3-2 mark records. One of Fremd’s conference wins came against Barrington, a 39-34 road win earlier this season. Junior guard Glassmann leads the way for the Vikings, averaging 14.7 points per game. He is flanked by senior forwards Carlson (8.5 points per game) and Benka (7.1 points per game). Zaumseil has emerged as a star this season for Barrington, which took third place at the Jacobs tournament over the holidays. Bart handles the scoring in the post for the Broncos. Head coach Bryan Tucker won his 300th career game earlier this season. Among Barrington’s big wins this season was a buzzer-beater from Vollman over highly-touted Bartlett at the Jacobs tournament. The Broncos are coming off a nonconference win over Huntley on Tuesday.

Quotable: “Barrington provides a difficult challenge this week,” Fremd coach Bob Widlowski said. “Zaumseil and Bart are very good scorers for them.”
