Big Tim's News, Notes, and Top performances for 3 FEB 2023!!!!!

I've been out of commission all week (bad cold) so have not written anything this week. This week has been the start of the Chicago Public League Playoffs for the boys which are not in quarterfinal round. Most of the last chances to set seeding positions were tonight as seeding meetings are Wednesday, February 8th, 2023. Still fighting this cold, but feeling somewhat better, so let's see how far I can get with what's been going down in the Chicago Area (and maybe beyond). Here we go:





New Trier (Winnetka) likely clinched the #1 seed in they Sectional with a tight win tonight at Evanston Township. Earned the regular season sweep in the long running series. They will have to clean up bad free throw shooting and some turnover down the stretch tonight to ultimately get to a Supersectional. They did survive tonight.


Lincoln Park (Chicago) gets booted out of the Chicago Public League Playoffs in Round of 16.....and never threw a punch. They was up 13 in the first round of the playoffs against Perspectives MSA with 1:39 left in the game. The officials stopped the game, and this is my opinion only should have awarded the game to Lincoln Park. Instead they called no contest hence the forfeit and Curie moves on to quarterfinals.


Favorites move to Chicago Public League Quarterfinals: Curie, Kenwood Academy, Simeon Career Academy, Hyde Park Academy, North Lawndale, Whitney Young, Wendell Phillips, and the only underdog to move on (at least seeding wise) Perspectives Leadership.


Bolingbrook beats Lincoln Way East for a second time this season. Takes a stranglehold over the Southwest Suburban Blue.


St Rita (Chicago) takes control of Chicago Catholic League Blue as they beat Fenwick (Oak Park) and Mount Carmel (Chicago) loses their second league game in a row, this time at Brother Rice (Chicago).

Palatine is Mid Suburban West Champs and possibly #1 seed in the Sectional.


Bloom Township (Chicago Heights) sophomore Elijah Lovemore drops a triple double tonight.


Illinois commit Morez Johnson Jr of St Rita (Chicago) scores his 1000th point tonight.


#1 Benet Academy (Lisle) picks up big road win at Marian Catholic (Chicago Heights).
