Games With Rankings Implications
Prospect at Stevenson
Prospect knocked off Hersey in its second try vs. Hersey this season. Did so on the road and up to 20 wins. Bordering on the rankings Had some rough bigger losses earlier in the season, but to good teams. A home game against Stevenson could be a really fun one. Stevenson has 4 straight wins, which included a conference win over Lake Zurich.
Lake Zurich at Libertyville
Finally mending some from injury. Won 2 games and lost by a point to New Trier. Big road game with NSC title implications Tuesday at Libertyville. Could find themselves back in the rankings as they get healthier Libertyville also hosts Maine South on Thursday.
Carmel Catholic at Benet
The Corsairs could boost themselves up the rankings a bit with a win in the ESCC tourney. Ashley Schlabowske seems to be playing good ball for Carmel lately. Anna Hartman is also back from injury, which is huge. The winner will play in the ESCC tourney title game on Saturday.
York at Lyons
York could tie for the WSC lead with a win at Lyons on Friday. The battle of guards Ally Cesarini and Mariann Blass could be a fun one.
Glenbrook South at Hersey
GBS is a very capable squad that could deal a blow to Hersey in Arlington Heights on Monday. Two of the area’s better guards in Sidney Rogers and Katy Eidle go head-to-head.
Richwoods at Peoria Notre Dame
Maybe Lexi Baer and Kamryn Heider are capable of making a splash at PND on Thursday?
