There’s a nice piece about Kukoc about halfway down the page: here
3/1: In a game that was close the whole way, and stressful due to one long possession after another, Deerfield (24-3) nipped Highland Park (17-11), 39-37. Kukoc ended his high school career at Highland Park by hitting 3 threes in the final minute (12-27 from the field) and scoring 29 of his team’s 37. “For a senior playing his final game, that was a spectacular individual performance,” said Bret Just, the coach of opposition Deerfield, in the Chicago Sun-Times.
3/1: Kukoc scored a game-high 21 points, all in the second half, as No. 15 Highland Park (17-10) beat beat No. 18 Carmel Catholic (10-17) 61-40, in an IHSA Class 4A Deerfield Regional first round game. The road gets a lot tougher Tuesday night when HP squares off against Deerfield.
2/23: Kukoc celebrated his commitment to Penn with a game-high 20 as HP beat Glenbrook South 39-32.
