Check out Saturday's schedule:
Consolation: Bloomington 62, Lanphier 56
Championship: Morgan Park 69, Fenwick 67
Consolation: Fremd vs. Bolingbrook, 5:30 p.m. CSN+ -- Fremd (31-1) and Bolingbrook (29-2) try to compete for third place in Class 4A in this one. The Vikings saw their unbeaten season come to an end at the hands of Whitney Young but the Vikings have some talented seniors in Shaan Patel and Kyle Sliwa. Bolingbrook has one of the deepest teams in the state as seniors Nana Akenten and Malik Binns are playing in their final high school games.
Championship: Simeon vs. Whitney Young, 7:15 p.m. CSN+ -- The rematch of the two city rivals comes for a state title as the Wolverines (29-3) battle the Dolphins (26-5).
Simeon won the first matchup between these two teams at UIC Pavilion in December as they come in as the favorite here. Senior point guard Evan Gilyard is a steady floor general and juniors Kezo Brown and Talen Horton-Tucker are both playing well. Big man Messiah Jones has also been active throughout the state playoffs for Simeon.
Whitney Young is peaking at the right time as senior Lucas Williamson has plenty of help from juniors Javon Freeman and Xavier Castaneda. If Castaneda plays up to his vast potential then the Dolphins will have a chance at beating Simeon the second time around.
