LISLE - In Benet's regular season finale victory over Carmel on Feb. 26, Glen Ellyn resident Sean O'Mara became the all-time leading scorer in program history.

Earlier in the year, O'Mara had gone over the 1,500-point plateau for his career in a victory over Nazareth on Feb. 14.

Headed to Xavier in the fall, the 6-foot-9 senior is averaging over 24 points and 13 rebounds a game this winter.

As a team, the Redwings were awarded the No. 1 seed at the East Aurora sectional and were set to begin the postseason on Tuesday at the Lemont regional against the host Indians. A victory in that game would send Benet into Friday's regional championship against either Waubonsie Valley or Naperville North.
