In the last seconds, after a timeout, Cohen kept Miles from getting by her, the West Aurora senior front-rimming a contested 3-pointer as time expired.
"There were moments of brilliant defense on [Miles]," Kasperek said. "Lauren took the challenge."
Count Bair as not surprised.
"Same exact as her sister," Bair said. "The Cohens know how to play defense. She's the most hard-working person I know."
Bair, for her part, is just fine with taking the challenge from her coaches to keep growing.
"They know what they're talking about," Bair said. "Them pushing us every day is good. They don't want us to get too comfortable. We're not going to get better if we're comfortable out there."
