Hustle plays are Michael Pasquella’s calling card, and he doesn’t always have to score a lot of points to help Lake Forest High School’s boys basketball team. 

And on a night when the senior was battling foul trouble, his characteristic hustle epitomized the team’s gritty comeback effort against North Suburban Conference rival Zion-Benton Friday, January 11.

So it was fitting that Pasquella’s last-minute steal and layup gave Lake Forest its first lead of the game.
