Superlatives in Chicago Area High School basketball tonight!!!!!!
I was at Proviso West for an event that was put together two weeks ago. The main event was #1 Glenbard West vs #5 Simeon Career Academy. Well….let’s just say Glenbard West made it a ho hum night. #1 smacked Simeon 60-32. That’s the correct score folks!!!!! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Simeon team get beat up like that by an in state team. There were two other earlier games. I missed the entire first game which was a Proviso West win over Fenwick 58-55. Then Proviso East pulled off the upset over #7 Hillcrest. Both Class 3A favorites lost on the same court tonight. I said two weeks ago no team in Illinois will beat Glenbard West, and I more feel that way after tonight. Here’s the superlatives for tonight:
