Some of the topics include:

-How could the IHSA and Peoria fix state?
-How good is Belleville West’s EJ Liddell?
-Rants on Leo, Loyola, the Public League playoffs and more.
-Which team that has never been ranked could make a playoff run?
-Where are the top eighth graders heading to high school?
-Who are the top five senior point guards?
-What is the season’s biggest disappointment?
-What star player has been under the radar all season?

    Really? I looked back and didn’t see them. They also weren’t in the preseason top 80.

    • Michael O'Brien

      Then you are probably right. I didn’t go back and check.

      Looking forward to checking Carmel out the last month of the season, with all the underclassmen they are playing I’m guessing they will be a preseason ranked team next year.

    To add to the Wheaton Warrenville South-Naperville North controversy this is the last year they are in the same conference but the hack-a-shack in last years playoffs really took the excitement out of the sectional and personally ruined the game.
    Although WWS is very good they have to play almost perfect to win as they have no size and take almost all 3’s.

      “Personally ruined the game”, heck, I haven’t slept for more than hour since that fateful night in Hinsdale.

      Although the better team didn’t win, the more talented team did.

    3A? Carmel? 15-7. Tough schedule. Top half of ESCC. Looking at their losses worst lost might be Notre Dame in December.

    • Michael O'Brien

      Agreed Randy. Didn’t mention them because I think Carmel might have snuck into the rankings early in the season for a week or two. It’s been a wild year, hard to remember everyone that has cracked it.
