LANSING | Coming into their game against Ridgewood, Illiana Christian knew the Rebels were going to be pesky on the Vikings' offensive end of the court.

So a little patience and a little passing was what the Vikings were looking for on Wednesday night.

Illiana Christian received plenty of both at the offensive end, and the Vikings won 60-37 over Ridgewood in Metro Suburban Conference action.

Gabby Kreykes scored 21 points and had seven rebounds, seven steals and five assists. Janna Vree and Bria Cole each added 10 points for Illiana Christian, and Andie Durham came off the bench to chip in eight.

"We were passing a couple more times than we would previously do in games," Kreykes said. "Today we took more time and got more openings down low."

The Vikings (8-14, 3-6) showed good ball movement throughout the first half with 10 assists.

"Yesterday in practice that's all we did was work on moving the ball," Illiana Christian coach Dave Bosman said. "Quick passes and ball movement. We knew that Ridgewood wasn't big, but they're scrappy.

"We worked a lot on spreading the floor, and we had a great practice coming into this."

"I saw way more open people tonight and that's so much better," Kreykes said. "We need to just keep with what we did today. And play good, tough defense and not let other teams get second-chance rebounds."

Bosman is looking for more patience from his team at the offensive end and Wednesday, the Vikings delivered for their coach.

"When we played last Saturday, everything was rushed," Bosman said. "What we told them is if you don't execute your offense and get good shots, you're not going to score."
