ROCHELLE — The Hubs hit a few milestones on Tuesday in one of their more impressive victories of the season when they soundly defeated Geneseo 85-55 in front of a home crowd.

The win was the team’s 10th victory of the season, while Rochelle senior guard Grant Prusator eclipsed the 1,500-point mark of his Hub career.

“We just started out shooting the ball really well,” Rochelle head coach Tim Thompson said. “We were fortunate that Grant (Prusator) got hot real quick, and things just started going right for us right away.”

The Maple Leafs struggled to get the ball across half  court early on as Rochelle forced one 10-second violation on Geneseo and almost three more. On the offensive end Rochelle came out on fire with Prusator knocking down four shots from three-point territory in the first quarter alone. Prusator had 17 points in the period.
