2017-18 record: 21-9, 6-3 in Public League Red-South/Central
Postseason results: Lost to Class 3A sectional finals to Morgan Park
Players to watch: The Bengals have one of the deepest rosters in the state this season. Seniors Jordan Booker and Jeremiah Washington are both proven performers in the backcourt while senior big man Rashuan Agee is a double-double threat coming off of a solid summer.
Why they're in the power rankings: Although Bogan doesn't have the Division I star power of other Public League powerhouses, they make it for it with grit and toughness. The Bengals are never phased to play programs like Simeon and Morgan Park. But this season, they have the talent to be the best team in the area if they put it all together.
Did you know? Bogan has won five consecutive regional titles, but they've only won one sectional during that span. This season, the Bengals have high hopes that they'll be able to make a run to Peoria.
