    Good segment as usual. I love when people are passionate about hoops.. The 1 issue I have, is when Ridgewood was brought up and the Antioch Sectional.There was some laughter that came up when the Teams werementioned that Ridgewood will face. Remember at this point that Saint Viator is 2-0 in probably a top 3 conference in the ESCC. Beating Benet and Marian! What conference does Ridgewood play in? I don’t think they’re going through the same level competition? I guarantee Saint Viator will be battle tested by this time of year. We also beat Ridgewood in the summer by 30…

      St Viator may have beaten Benet and Marian Catholic but look at who they have lost to and how much they have lost by. Good teams do not loose by as many points they do against some of those schools. They are what they are a sub 500 team. ESCC is tough again this year and I don’t see Viator coming away with a top 3 finish.

    Great podcast again. Disagree with you about a couple of those outside the top 25. Ridgewood has 3 losses in a bad conference. Not sure about Hinsdale South also – they didn’t show well at York – a 20 point loss. Loved the format.
