Seton Academy's Jaylin Clemons gets helped up after hitting the floor hard during a varsity basketball game against Illiana Christian on Friday, Feb. 22, 2013. | John Smierciak~for Sun-Times Media ORG XMIT: BBKseton-STS-022413-2

Seton’s Kamal Shasi knows a regional title is hopefully just one stop along the way to a state title.

But that doesn’t stop the senior from enjoying the ride.

Shasi scored 21 points on seven three-pointers and Mark Weems Jr. finished with 17 points and six assists as host Seton defeated Illiana Christian 92-61 in a 2A regional final Friday.

“We wanted to start the game off hard with a lot of pressure,” Shasi said. “This was our senior night. This regional was special, especially being on our home court. I guess I’m a little spoiled.”

The regional title was Seton’s seventh straight.

Alex Foster (12) and Armahn Mooring (10) contributed for the Sting (19-10).

Shasi hit four three-pointers in the first quarter as Seton opened up a 25-13 lead. His second quarter triple ignited a 9-0 run that gave the Sting a 48-27 lead.

“It all comes from playing hard,” Shasi said. “Things come easy when you play defense.”

Illiana Christian (19-10) was led by Caleb Jonkman (17 points) and Elijah Lares (15 points).
