IHSA Class 4A Boys Basketball Sectional Pairings are out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just saw these courtesy of Michael O'Brien of the Chicago Sun Times. I have some observations:


1) Simeon is not in Bloom Sectional, they are in the Lyons Sectional with other Chicago Public League Powers Whitney Young and Curie. I say they might as well go back to giving the City just the one automatic bid Downstate to Peoria.


2) Bloom Township(Chicago Heights) or Marian Catholic(Chicago Heights) out of the Bloom Township Sectional will probably be playing a Chicago Public League Powerhouse out of the Lyons(LaGrange) Sectional in the Evanston(Northwestern University) Supersectional Tough road to get to Peoria.


3) Evanston Township vs Stevenson(Lincolnshire) could be a rematch of last years overtime thriller in the Hoffman Estates(Sears Centre) Supersectional if Evanston survives the Elk Grove Village Sectional and Stevenson survives the Mt Prospect(Prospect) Sectional. Stevenson's Matt Ambrose would sure love to get another open look at the end of regulation this time.


4) DeKalb(Northern Illinois University) Supersectional is wide open at this time.


5) Normal(Illinois State University) Supersectional could have a monster match up with Bolingbrook(Lockport Sectional) vs Collinsville(Pekin Sectional). A good thing for Bolingbrook, no EJ Liddell and Belleville West this time.


6) My favorites at this time to get to Peoria: Stevenson(Lincolnshire),Lake Park, Bolingbrook, and Bloom Township.
