10:30am – Danville vs St. Charles North
1pm – Curie vs Joliet West
2:30pm – New Trier vs Plainfield North
4pm – Bloomington vs Warren Township
6pm – Benet Academy vs Peoria Manual
7:30pm – Bloom vs Pontiac
9:00pm – Oak Park vs West Aurora

Notes: The State’s No. 1 Tournament, Curie should roll in un-defeated with a wave of scrappy hard playing athletes led by Kansas State recruit Dajuan Gordon. Supporting cast of Ramean Hinton, Damari Nixon, Josiah Hammons, & Armond Williams Jr. New Trier looks to present some problems for opponents with its towering front-court of Ciaran Brayboy, a Harvard recruit and 6-8 SR Spencer Boehm, under-the-radar floor general Sam Silverstein. Bloom-Curie match-up would make this venue a frenzy affair to view. The Trojan’s Junior Trio, Keshawn Williams, Donovan Newby, & Martice Mitchell will exhilarate an audience. Watch-out for guard Justin Moore. Benet Academy will be angling to knock-off someone behind the play of Senior forward Kendrick Tchoua one of the state’s top un-signed seniors and Junior Colin Crothers. Usual perennial favorite Simeon having a slow start with a line-up of young players logging significant minutes will still be a much-watched squad, with senior scorer & top un-signee Antonio Reeves, senior guard Kejuan Clements, junior Bryce Hall, soph wiz Ahamed Bynum. Two prized freshmen A.J. Casey & Jaylen Drane. Bloomington will be a tough squad to deal with featuring SIU recruit Chris Payton and top un-signed guard Caleb Donaldson. Oak-Park comes in with a senior laden quartet of Chase Robinson, Anthony Roberts, Charlie Hoehne, & Dashon Enoch, and soph guard Isaiah Barnes should be someone to watch. Dark-horse team is Plainfield North who has a line-up of impressive juniors Kaleb Fenelus Williams and Colin O’Rourke.

Notes: This will be a good tournament to view, the location is in close proximity with the Proviso West Xmas event as well as York. DePaul Prep is playing at a high-level right now and could be the early favorite with Brown recruit Perry Cowan performing like an All-Stater un-song junior Lance Mosley. Sophomore to watch 6-8 Brian Matthews. Marian Catholic has junior Ahron Ullis averaging close to 20, senior Chris White junior guard Joe Green. Oswego East comes in with Boise State recruit Raymond Dennis & junior forward Sam Schultz. St. Rita will have un-signed senior Jeremiah Oden. Richards, Lincoln Park, and Homewood-Flossmoor should be entertaining to watch as well.

8:45pm – Niles North vs Maine West

Notes: The St. Viator squad should be the favorite with a line-up of Wright State recruit Trey Calvin and Kent State signee Jerry Hernandez and promising junior Connor Kochera. Buffalo Grove has sharp shooting frosh Kam Kraft, he’s a player to watch. Waukegan will be local heart-throb at the event with Bryant Brown, Jordan Brown, and Andre White Jr. Anthony Sayles of Notre Dame will likely draw the interest from College Coaches & Scouts. Geneva will have shooter Mitch Mascari. Glenbrook South has under-valued all-purpose performer Dom Martinelli who can score a variety of ways. Niles North carts in talented junior Aquan Smart and promising 6-5 sophomore Jalen Butler.

Notes: A few of teams housed at this Holiday destination, one thing is for certain the head-liners will be Marquise Kennedy of Brother Rice heading to Loyola-Chgo. He’s a Top 5 player in the State. Another Rambler recruit Tom Welch (Naperville North) on-hand. State’s No. 1 sophomore Max Christie is sure to fill the stands. Drake Univ. recruit Nate Ferguson (Lemont) will be some-one to view closely. Schaumburg stud, 6-7 Chris Hodges is legit. T.F. South will feature the Stewart twins Elijah & Andrew. St. Lawrence is one of the area’s surprising teams with break-out junior guard, Jeremiah Williams. River-Side-Brookfield has a solid team-oriented cast and will contend for the title. Wheaton North has talented senior forward Deng Reng who’s un-signed. York has Top 25 Junior PG Nate Shockey, an exciting player. Don’t be surprised at 6-7 soph Julian Campbell of Palatine, a rising player has some success.

4:30pm – Chicago Walter Payton vs Bartlett
6:00pm – Crystal Lake South vs Waubonsie Valley
7:30pm – Jacobs vs Streamwood

Notes: This is a Holiday venue that I was a frequent visitor there, an event where you could potentially notice some sleeper prospects. Cary Grove’s pair Beau Frericks a stellar junior guard & six-foot eight junior forward Frank Jakubicek. Northern Illinois signee Keenon Cole will be attraction coming in with his Streamwood squad. Quinn Peterson one of the area’s top young Coaches will be on-hand with his Walter Payton team, Barrington, South-Elgin, Dixon, & Rockford Jefferson has promising young talent.

Our area lost one of all-time great high-school players when former St. Francis De Sales stand-out Eric Anderson passed away last week-end at 48. Anderson led De Sales to a 29-2 record and a second-place finish in the Class AA 1988 Season. He went on to become a heck of player at Indiana where he led the Hoosiers to the 1992 Final Four.

The two-day Team Rose event at Mount-Carmel December 8th & 9th was a really good event. Some match-ups attracted a huge viewing with Bloom vs Morgan Park; St. Viator vs Oswego East; Brother Rice vs Uplift; Bloomington vs Leo; Kenwood vs Hillcrest; and Oak-Park vs Orr all were prime games and highly competitive. “It was the place to be in Chicago last week-end.”

• Myles Baker 6-3 WG MM Young – “Playing extremely well, stock-climbing.”
• Tujautae Williams 6-6 G MM Orr – “Nice length, likes to get up & down.”
• Kendrick Tchoua 6-6 F MM Benet – “Patriot League really interested.”
• Deonte Billups 6-4 G MM Moline – “He & his team are playing well.”
• Rashawn Agee 6-7 PF MM Bogan – “Had a monster week with double/doubles in some big victories.”
• Cortez Mosley 6-4 WG MM Peoria Richwoods – “Sleek player who can score.
• Antonio Reeves 6-4 WG MM Simeon – “Has game & savvy. Pontiac will be his outing to shine.”
• Dylan West 6-7 PF LM+ Hillcrest – “A sleeper type; rising prospect.”
• Jeremiah Oden 6-7 F LM+ St. Rita – “Xmas venue will provide answers.”
• Greg Outlaw 6-5 WF LM+ Orr – “A raw promising talent. Good defender.”
• Caleb Donaldson 6-5 G LM+ Bloomington – “Nice length, can handle & create for mates, good finisher.”
• Bryant Brown 6-4 G/F LM+ Waukegan – “Just a hooper.”

5:30pm – Hillcrest vs Proviso West
7:00pm – Whitney Young vs Crete-Monee
8:30pm – St. Joseph vs Morton

Notes: Not as strong as its been in previous years but a couple of match-ups might lure a sizeable crowd. New addition Chicago Leo could provide some healthy fireworks for this venue. Leo’s Fred Cleveland Jr. and Uplift’s Markese Jacobs (DePaul signee) will be fun to watch if the match up occurs, now the Anderson Brothers (Dechaun-Kendale) could be too much for Uplift. Bogan probably boasts more talent than anyone in the field with Rashaun Agee, Jeremiah Washington, Jordan Booker, Kyndall Davis, & rapidly improving junior forward Kennedy Brown. They could be the favorite. Whitney Young rolls in with top notch juniors D.J. Steward & Tyler Beard. Senior leader Myles Baker has been consistently good. Colleges will flock to this venue as well to get a close-up look at a few of these standout prospects, including highly touted sophomore Bryce Hopkins a 6-5 scorer from Fenwick.

10:30am - Farragut vs Butler Charter
5:30pm - Bowman vs Rich South

Notes: It will be a plenty of skin’n & grinning with laughter at this event. Morgan Park will likely be the favorite, even though they’ve hit some bumps of late. Some name Coaches will make things real colorful: Tai Streets (Thornton), Donnie Kirksey (Vocational), William Nelson (Farragut), Larry Moore Jr. (Hammond), Henry Cotton (Marshall), Marc Howard (Romeoville), Terry Head (Clark), Anton Harmon (Hope Academy), a couple of young up-coming Coaches Cornelius Crossley (Rich Central) & Paul Hobson (Butler Charter).

“Some under the radar High-School teams I’m looking to crack the area Top 20 racket.”

*Richards*Corliss*T.F. South*Rich-Central*Lincoln Park*Plainfield North*Cary Grove


“Slim pickings at the Division One level right now, the anticipation for others to emerge after Xmas are sure bet.”

• Tujautae Williams 6-6 G MM+-MM Chicago Orr
“Multi-dimensional performer with a huge up-side, best hoop days await. Will likely commit late, while Gonzaga seems to be very interested.”

• Deonte Billups 6-4 WG MM Moline
“A complete all-around player knows how to win. Lead his team to a huge win over Quincy Friday nite 23 points/12 rebounds & six assists! Has some flair & productivity to his play.”

• Myles Baker 6-3 WG MM Whitney Young
“Wiry wing has had an impressive start, he displayed the ability to make shots & be a willing defender. Cleveland State seems to be highly interested, had 18 points at the Chicago Elite Classic.”

• Kendrick Tchoua 6-6 PF MM Benet Academy
“This kid has been a handful to cover, good athlete who averages 19 pts & 11 boards. He’s been a refreshing addition to our area.”

• Rashawn Agee 6-7 F MM Chicago Bogan
“Plagued with foul trouble at the Chicago Elite Classic, which prevented him from showcasing his strengths. Rebounding & scoring inside/mid-range.”

• Cortez Mosley 6-4 WG MM Peoria Richwoods
“Sleek wing player with a silk-smooth game & jump shot; averages 19pts, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, & 4 steals thus far.”

• Jeremiah Oden 6-7 WF MM-LM+ St. Rita
“Likely red-shirt candidate, thin but has demonstrated flashes as a scorer who could blossom in a year or two.”

• Greg Outlaw 6-5 WF LM+ Chicago Orr
“The potential is there for him to develop into a legitimate mid-major recruit. Needs a year somewhere to polish his skills. Good athlete, shot looks like it could be effective soon.”

• Antonio Reeves 6-4 G LM+- Chicago Simeon
“Slender shooter who looks to thrive in a system-oriented setting, will have a slew of big game stages to express himself. Recorded 15pts/10 rebounds against St. Vincent at the Chicago Elite Classic.”


In the mist of the reported dust-up over at Leo High-School between Coaches Frison & Cleveland, its hoops business as usual in Chicago. Most of our locals thrive off of noise/confliction. “We witness drama/theatrics regularly around here, the masses just keep marching forward. Leo High School did hire a new Coach, Alum Jamal Thompson replacing Shawn Frison in a last-minute shake-up.”

Down in Central Illinois at the Decatur Team Soy capital Thanksgiving Tournament, fans were treated to a fast pace frenzy affair in the title game when Bolingbrook out-lasted Springfield South East 90-88. Lewis University recruit Kameron Leonard’s field goal with 2 seconds remaining won the thriller for the Raiders. Drake recruit Joseph Yesufu was the high-man recording 32 points, while Southeast guard Terrion Murdix registered a team high 25. Murdix will suit-up next season for Lance Irvin at Chicago State. Northern Illinois signee Tyler Cochran will be out 2 more weeks with a hand injury. He did not play at all in Decatur.

Over the Turkey break, I slid over to the Northwest Suburb and watched talented sophomore Chris Hodges’ Schaumburg squad go head-on with Bucknell signee Alex Timmerman and his Crystal Lake Central Team, where CLC ripped them 63-47. The six foot seven Hodges (19 points) is going to become a difficult cover soon, especially when his mates learn to toss the ball into him more frequently. He’s a good athlete who runs the floor & competes at a high-level. Sure, there are areas of his game that needs improvement, but in time he could develop into a mid-plus to high-major recruit. Timmerman, who finished with 25 plus was un-guardable in the paint, Bucknell landed a player who may contribute early, in fact the big fella looks like an All-State candidate this season. He has some really nifty moves & foot-work in the paint.

We just spoke about Hodges, there are some other 2021 prospects off to a fast start high-majors should begin processing/recording their growth & progress.

Ahamad Bynum 6-2 G 1 Chicago Simeon
Max Christie 6-4 G 1 Rolling Meadows-“saw him get 36”

                                                                               Game winning shot.”

Chris Hodges 6-7 WF 8 Schaumburg
Scottie Ebube 6-8 F 9 Mundelein-“Envision Big 10”

Ismail Habib 5-11 PG 13 Lincoln Park

Rockford East six-foot three wing Sincere Parker “is a bad dude” he’s had an impressive start; the junior is averaging close to 30 markers per outing, recorded 31 points vs Indianapolis Pike including 5 dunks. Parker has rapidly soared as a Top 10 rated prospect in the 2020 Class. He’s a high-riser athlete with the ability to score on perimeter in a variety of ways. 

Benet Academy has drawn some attention in the last week with the play of book-end interior players, Kendrick Tchoua and junior Colin Crothers. Tchoura, a 6-6 senior transfer from the Maryland area had a monster outing versus St. Charles East last week registering 28, 13 & 4 assists, then went for 16 points & 6 boards against DeKalb at the Ridgeway shoot-out on Sunday. The six foot seven Crothers amassed a double-double versus St. Charles 21-12 & DeKalb on Sunday came away with 26 pts/14 rebounds. Tchoua has several Division One Mid-Majors tracking his play. The real test for the pair will occur at the Pontiac Holiday Classic later in the month.

Friday, November 9, 2018


“Some un-heralded players we are anticipating having a break-out season. We identified 10 of them with brief comments.”

There’s been enormous amount of conversation of late regarding this group. Who are the top guys, whom must we see/view out the gate-opening the season. We here, will stay on the positive/optimistic side in an effort to identify our elite prospects. Several notable defections have hampered the depth of this once touted cast.

Jamari McClendon 6-1 G LM 47 Chicago Hope Academy
“Competitive thrives in clutch, one of my favorites.”

Robert Hobbs 6-4 F LM 48 Chicago Crane

Levell McIntosh 6-3 WF LM 49 Kankakee
“A rising player, big-time athlete, this season he will have opportunity to express himself.”

P.J. Edwards 6-4 G/F LM 50 Springfield Lanphier
“Lost some steam within the last year. The swingman has an opportunity to redeem himself as well as game this season.”


“Vast majority of our players today has become so fixated on rankings & hype, instead of focusing on growth & improvement. The youngsters we will identify aren’t finished products but have a wealth of potential. At the Spot-Liter we will observe closely with a watchful lens on the development of many of our prized youngsters. We’ve noticed in recent years a growing trend in our area where players have become cool & nonchalant on the court, compared to what Chicago once was noted for producing, kids whom were tough and played hard. There used to be a sense of urgency to their game. Now I witness dudes just strutting around on the hardwood not going hard. The sad irony is most don’t even understand the game, I’ll assume a lot contributes from reading their press clippings. This diminishing climate of hoops looks to been cultivated by the last few previous class. Hopefully we can create a new culture with this up-coming crop of prospects. We are certainly out in front of these two Classes 2021 & 22, as well as the next batch of up-comers.”

Ahamed “Black Cat” Bynum 6-2 G 1 2021 Chicago Simeon
“Exciting player already possess the ability to score; terrific perimeter shooter; MVP of the Pangos All-Star game a few weeks ago.”

“Has enormous potential, like most young players he tries to do too much at times; hype machine needs to tone it down a tad.”

Brandon Weston 6-4 WG 3 2021 Lake Forest Academy
“This talented New York native has a promising floor game to go with athleticism. Showed up one day at the Pangos event where he received a mixed views from national & area scouts.”

Jaylen Drane 6-1 PG 1 2022 Chicago Simeon
“Right now, No.1 in the class; electric floor game & innovative finisher at the rim. He & Bynum will pair up to form a frightening back-court in the next few years.”

Kimahri Wilson 6-0 PG 5 2021 Carmel
“Exciting prospect, floor game fun to watch, has tools to grow into terrific recruit.”

Chris Hodges 6-7 PF 8 2021 Schaumburg

Khaillied Terry 6-5 WF 4 2021 Champaign Central
“One of the state’s top athletes regardless of class; this high jumper can be a high-light reel performer some nights. Needs to improve some necessary skill areas.”

Kanye Smith 6-5 G/F 5 2022 Chicago Young
“Good shooter & rebounder, even though he’s a swing-man clone, he was impressive at the Pangos event. We like his game and up-side.”

Grant Newell 6-7 WF 7 2021 Chicago Young
“Slithery silk-smooth floor game; respectable perimeter shooter; stock is soaring.”

Bennie Slater 6-5 WG 10 2021 Springfield High
“A rising stand-out in Central Illinois, the best elite prospect in that area. Wiry fella who can drop 25 a night eventually. Confidence starting to emerge.”

Anthony Sayles 6-0 PG 6 2021 Niles North
“Slippery scoring guarding PG who has demonstrated star quality at times. Already possesses a pretty good understanding of how to play. Once pegged as the next Derrick Rose. Not so after being sized up closely, especially at his current state. D’Rose was a beast entering year two of high-school.”

Kameron Kraft 6-4 WG 6 2022 Buffalo Grove H.S.
“Some observers view him as the best pure shooter in the area; we are high on this kid’s potential.”

Nick Harrell 6-5 F 7 2022 Brother Rice
“Highly touted, the best lookin prospect to enter the South-Side Catholic School in recent years. Very skilled, has high I.Q. should see significant minutes immediately on the varsity.”

Xavier Amos 6-4 WG 4 2022 Chicago Young
“This kid plays above the rim, shoots the rock with a high efficiency. My reliable sources swear he will develop into a high-major recruit.”

A.J. Casey 6-8 F 2 2022 Chicago Simeon
“We need to turn-off the hype machine & give him time to develop into what his game will eventually entitle too. A raw talent but promising. He will add strength & his confidence will continue to grow. I personally want to see him shine.”

Jaylin Gibson 6-3 PG 11 2021 Evanston
“A big physical lead guard with a wealth of potential; it’s time for Gibson to separate himself from others. We are hoping he can channel himself away from the wild frenzy style that several of his mates thrive on. Understanding flow & pace should be his focus. If he does, you would see a modern-day Quinn Buckner.”

Marquan Jones 6-3 WG 9 2022 Chicago Farragut
“A youngster with potential to be a high scorer. Some observers compare him to former Simeon stand-out Talen Horton Tucker. Jones plays for coaches who do a fine job of developing their players. Things look good for him.”

Robby Avila 6-7 F 10 2022 Oak Forest
“A good lookin skilled prospect who people in the South Suburbs peg to be a break-out star one day.”

Jalen Butler 6-6 WF 12 2021 Niles North
“This versatile 15-year-old has awfully bright future. Presently he can defend four positions effectively. Offensive game coming along.”

Ismail Habib 5-10 PG 13 2021 Lincoln Park
“Ismail has demonstrated many times last season he may be ready to be un-leashed soon. A talented play-maker with the ability to hit huge baskets and make clutch plays.”


“Most indicators lead to these players opting to commit or sign later”

The loss of many close to my heart in a short period, including a family member in a span of 3 or 4 weeks have left me reflective & baffled, but mindful of many things in my daily surroundings. This last one has taken its toll on many of us, it’s a sharp reminder that every-one must have an expiration date at some point…

North Lawndale basketball Coach Lewis Thorpe passed away unexpectedly a week or so ago, leaving many us still mourning. His loss leaves a huge void not just in the Chicago hoop circles but in the North Lawndale neighborhood where he was the face of their school and a pillar in the community. Lew was a role model, and instrumental in influencing & guiding many students not only athletes. He was admired & loved through-out Chicago, it was on full display when over 1,400 people showed up to memorialize this beloved husband, father, and coach, it re-affirmed the affection so many had for Coach Thorpe. Lew accomplished some amazing achievements at the West-Side School where he was the architect behind the schools 30-4 State Title team in 2007-08; State Runner-up in 2006-07 with a 26-10 mark and the North Lawndale squad that captured the city title in 2008-09 finishing 30-6 record. We may have lost our friend for now, but he will always be fondly remembered for his kind spirit and compassion for others; I certainly will never forget the times we shared.

We can only imagine the vindication that hails with Uplift standout guard Markese Jacobs, especially after he gave DePaul’s Dave Leitao a verbal pledge last month to join the Blue Demon’s rapidly rising Program. It also marked a sign of maturity and an attitude adjustment for Chicago’s No.1 player. A 360-degree change was witnessed this summer in his overall game/makeup, after watching him last season hoist up ill-advised 30 footers while demonstrating bad body language and a reckless floor play. Now things look bright again and Chicago hoop connoisseurs feel gleeful about Jacob’s decision to stay home on the North side where we will assemble barriers around him. Kudos to his High School Coach David Taylor who continues to have a sturdy palm in developing and mentoring his young standout. We live in an era in Chicago where it’s essential that we touch our young people’s lives regularly.

“Celebrating individuals that have made a lasting impact on Chicago hoops history/scene.”



Dinos Trigonis came in town saddled-up for few days armed with my favorite contingent of national scouts including Van Coleman, Clark Francis, Frank Burlinson, and Nike’s top observer John Stovall. Scouting observers caught a birds-eye view of some of the top up-coming talent in the Mid-West. For us locals it was a golden opportunity to size up some of our areas’ highly touted 2021 & 22 prospects. The only sobering aspect for us local viewers was watching the nation’s No. 1 player – Pat Baldwin Jr. strut his game; the young fella grew up in the Chicago area and was often recognized as our up-coming phenom, now resides in Sussex, Wis. where he has reaffirmed his status as a prized recruit. We can’t help but create thoughts of what packed gymnasiums would look like when he suited up to perform nightly. Baldwin is a re-birth of former NBA star and University Tennessee stand-out Alan Houston. Now Chicagoans starting to feel really good about the development of Simeon’s six-foot one high scoring guard Ahamed “Black Cat” Bynum, who claimed camp MVP after recording a thirty-point performance on 6 of 8 shooting during the All-Star Game finale. Bynum is a terrific talent, he was draining jumpers from thirty, arguably the best player in our state’s 2021 Class. He has the perfect demeanor for stardom. Springfield-Missouri native Anton Brookshire was impressive, demonstrated excellent poise & court savvy while brandishing skills of a polished ball-handler/shooter & decision maker. He drew some MVP considerations. Good lookin’ prospect.
