I'm off to Hoffman Estates...

...tonight to see the 3A Super-Sectional game between Orr (27-3) and North Chicago (28-3), two No. 1 seeds.

I'm going to go with the Spartans of Orr, mainly because its current building was designed by the firm of the legendary architect George Costanza Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, above. (That, and the fact that Orr is ranked higher than the Warhawks in all three polls I watch.)

According to the Trib:

1. Simeon
2. Young
3. Morgan Park
4. Proviso East
5. Orr
6. Oswego
7. Benet
8. Marian Catholic
9. Curie
10. Stevenson
11. North Chicago 


1. Simeon
2. Morgan Park
3. Young
4. Proviso East
5. Orr
6. Marian Catholic
7. Stevenson
8. North Chicago 


1. Whitney Young
2. Simeon
3. Morgan Park
4. Proviso East
5. Edwardsville
6. Benet
7. Neuqua Valley
8. Marian Catholic
9. Stevenson
10. West Aurora
11. Cahokia
12. Washington
13. Oswego
14. Orr
15. East St. Louis
16. Curie
17. Belleville East
18. Springfield Southeast
19. Lincoln
20. New Trier
21. St. Rita
22. Bloom
23. Harrisburg
24. North Chicago

Now, MaxPreps ranks every team in the state so Orr and North Chicago appear much lower than in the Chicago papers. But they are certainly two of the best teams in the area, and tonight's contest may very well be the Game of the Night. (Mike Helfgot thinks so, too.)

By the way, MaxPreps still ranks Whitney Young No. 1 over Simeon. After Friday night's game? Really, MaxPreps?
