Should I go and watch...
Or should I see No. 13 Taft (7-4, 11-12) at No. 4 Niles North (10-0, 24-4) at 6:00 and No. 12 Evanston (1-9, 9-18) at No. 5 Loyola (7-0, 21-6) at 7:30 (both at Loyola)?
While the former might be the better game, the latter combination should set up a good contest on Friday night between the Vikings and the Ramblers. (And I don't want to go into that gym cold.)
That way, I could get a good look at Malachi Nix of Niles North (above, shooting against Loyola two years ago), the conference scoring leader (442) before he takes on the Wilmette squad. Nix leads a high-scoring offense, including B. J. Beckford (307 points), Billy Voitik (154) and J. J. Myles (138).
The Ramblers, meanwhile, will rely on the steady play of Jack Morrissey (182 points) and James Clarke (95).
I think I've answered my own question.
