With a sour taste still in its mouth from its loss to North Lawndale in the Public League Championship, Hyde Park wasted little time taking out its frustration on host Brother Rice rolling to a 64-44 victory Wednesday in a Class 4A Regional semifinal.

The Thunderbirds (25-4) raced out to a 21-10 lead and scored 43 points in the opening 16 minutes. Malcolm Griffin and Aqui Shareef led the way for Hyde Park with 14 points each.

“This was a good game for us to have coming off our loss in the title game,” Hyde Park coach Donnie Kirksey said. “But we need to play better and execute. Every team is good from this point forward.”

Jerome Moore added 13 while Anthony Dixon had 10 for Hyde Park.

Here's a description of Hyde Park:
"...The Indians have a bevy of talented guards in Martell Jackson, Fabyon Harris and Malcolm Griffin. Plus they also have two aggressive big men in Jerome Moore and Anthony Dixon..."

Keep in mind that Anthony Dixon is 6-4 but maybe that qualifies as a 'big' in the prep ranks.
