Highland Park senior guard Jake Norcia made quite a name for himself this past weekend. Norcia hit a full-court shot at the end of the first quarter against Niles North on Friday night.
Norcia finished the game with 12 points before fouling out in his team's loss.
This wasn't the first buzzer-beater for Norcia. Earlier in the season, he nailed a half-court basket as time expired to give the Giants a victory over Elk Grove.
Take a look at his amazing shot in this video below:
The Cubs added just under $19 million in salary over the next four years when they opted for veteran Ben Zobrist at second base over Starlin Castro this past offseason.
After winning a World Series with the Kansas City Royals, Zobrist inked a four-year, $56 million deal with the Cubs, which prompted the North Siders to trade Castro to the New York Yankees.
So far the move has paid immediate dividends in 2016.
Zobrist is either tied or has better numbers than Castro in every major statistical category through 47 games this season.

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2016 NBA Draft we will provide profiles of more than 50 prospects, including video interviews with each player, what they're saying leading up to draft day as well as their potential fit with the Bulls.
Jakob Poeltl, C, Utah
7'0" | 230 lbs. | 20 years old
17.2 points, 9.1 rebounds, 64.6% FG, 1.6 blocks, 30.4 minutes
"I feel like I acvtually fit that style pretty good. Because the league's getting smaller but also you have to be more versatile as a big, you have to do more different stuff like step out a little bit, like be able to handle the ball, be able to pass the ball. And I feel like that's somethign I'm actually pretty good at. So I think I'll fit in pretty well."
Rotoworld mock draft selection:
10. Milwaukee Bucks: Jakob Poeltl, C, Utah – Greg Monroe hasn’t really seemed to gel with Jason Kidd’s offense and defense, but Poeltl has the potential to step in and help on both ends. He has above-average potential as a rim protector, and though not the most athletic player, he is skilled on the offensive end, comfortable in the pick-and-roll, and can make an impact on the offensive boards.
Fit for the Bulls:
It could be an offseason of change for the Bulls' frontcourt, as both Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol are set to become free agents. The Bulls hit on their Bobby Portis selection last year, and adding Poeltl to the mix would give a solid rim protector and post presence. Poeltl would be an excellent complement to Portis' stretch game. And if the Bulls opt to bring back one of Gasol or Noah, Poeltl would have a solid mentor to learn from. He'll become the first Austrian to ever play in the NBA, so the Bulls' fan base would grow exponentially in central Europe, for what it's worth.

School: Woodstock North Thunder
Head coach: Jeff Schroeder
Assistant coaches: John Fredericks, Matt Polnow, Chris Jackowiak
How they fared in 2015: 4-5 (2-4) Fox Valley (Fox). Woodstock North failed to qualify for the 2015 IHSA state football playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2016: How will the Thunder fare in the new Kishwaukee River Conference in 2016?
Names to watch this season: OL/DL Zach Schau RB/DB Collin Mergi QB/LB Matt Zinnen
Biggest holes to fill: The Thunder will need to get some numbers and depth this season with several starters planning to play on both sides of the football.
EDGY's Early Take: The Thunder, along with sister school Woodstock, move into the new Kishwaukee River Conference along with several former Big Northern schools. The conference should benefit Woodstock North from an overall enrollment standpoint. Expect the Thunder to compete for a conference title and a state playoff spot.
