Monday, Proviso East, 56-47, last night to set up a third-round game with No. 3-seed Kenwood, which defeated Lane Tech, 38-30 (in basketball, not football).
Tied at 33 at the end of the third quarter, it was a close contest until the very end. (Both teams are very young, incidentally. If nothing else, keep your eye on them both for next year.)
Whitney Young, meanwhile, bested Lincoln Park on Tuesday night, 64-44. The Dolphins will now face No. 9-seed Morton, which upset De La Salle, 64-58.
Will the Wolfpack meet up with Young next Wednesday at Morton East in Cicero? Bragging rights in the neighborhood will be on the line! (My fiendish plot is coming together nicely.)
P. S. That's the Ignatius mascot, above. Does he have a name? Wolfie? I saw him in the hallway after the game with his "head" off. He looked like he'd been hot under there.
