SOUTHWEST SUBURBAN BLUE
Outlook: Bolingbrook senior forward Ben Moore moved quickly up the recruiting charts during the summer and has committed to SMU, where he will play for Larry Brown. But while he may help make the Raiders the favorite, if they falter in the least, Homewood-Flossmoor, Joliet West and perhaps Sandburg and Lincoln-Way East will be waiting to take over.
Top five players: Ben Moore, Bolingbrook, F, Sr.; Morris Dunnigan, Joliet West, G, Jr.; Malek Harris, Sandburg, Jr. F; Marius Hill, H-F, F, Sr.; Mike Moss, Lincoln-Way East, G, Sr.
Did you know? Bolingbrook coach Rob Brost said Raiders sophomore guard Prentiss Nixon already has offers from SMU and Colorado State, and several Big Ten schools have been in to see him.
Quote: “Based on what I saw this summer and with all the publicity their kids have gotten, you have to think Bolingbrook is the team to beat. But H-F is right up there, and this league week after week is the proverbial grind,” — Joliet West coach Luke Yaklich
Predicted finish: Bolingbrook, Homewood-Flossmoor, Joliet West, Sandburg, Lincoln-Way East, Lockport, Joliet Central, Lincoln-Way Central.
