OK, take away Kendall Stephens and the Vikings win this game by 11 points.
Maybe not that much, but the Purdue-bound junior forward for St. Charles East made himself look like a future Hall-of-Famer on Geneva's Hall of Fame night. The Saints beat the Vikings 61-47.
Geneva actually led 15-14 at the end of the first quarter, but St. Charles East pulled away to lead 34-21, lead by Stephens' 11 points. Geneva guard Phil Lorenz kept the Vikings in the game with 9 first-half points.
In the third, St. Charles East extended their halftime lead, although Geneva's Connor Chapman kept the Vikings in the game with 7 points.
Geneva cut it 53-43 at the 3:51 mark in the fourth, but Stephens closed it out with two baskets and two free throws to slam the door.
