2017-18 record: 29-4, 9-0 in Public League Red-South/Central
Postseason results: Lost to Whitney Young in Class 4A super-sectional.
Players to watch: Senior guard Kejuan Clements has been a consistent presence for the Wolverines the past few seasons. Transfer guard Antonio Reeves is a senior Division I prospect who started his career at Kenwood before moving to Arizona for his junior season. And Simeon's young trio of sophomore guard Ahamad Bynum and freshmen A.J. Casey and Jaylen Drane will all be players to track during the season.
Why they're in the power rankings: Simeon might have some growing pains to start the season with such a young team. But the Wolverines possess the talent to compete with anyone in the state. The key will be integrating Reeves seemlessly into the lineup while also developing the young trio that has so much promise and potential.
Did you know? The freshman duo of A.J. Casey and Jayeln Drane competed in the USA Basketball junior national minicamp during October as they were among the best high school players in the country.
