The Matchup: No. 14 Morgan Park (Chicago) vs. Simeon (Chicago),
Morgan Park players to watch: Senior point guard Charlie Moore, a Memphis signee, is the team’s top scorer and leads its defense as well. Western Michigan signee Jarrin Randle, a senior guard, and athletic senior guard Jamal Burton give the team plenty of depth in the backcourt.
Simeon players to watch: Shooting guard Zach Norvell, who has signed with Gonzaga, junior point guard Evan Gilyard, sophomore guard Kezo Brown and forward James Gordon IV, who has signed with Toledo.
What to expect: This game was originally supposed to happen two weeks ago, but was postponed when Morgan Park parents objected to having the game moved from a home game to a neutral site, which would allow for more seats than Morgan Park’s 250-seat gym. The game is already a sell out and should be intense. The last time these teams met, on Dec. 11, Morgan Park took a 70-65 victory The game will be carried live on The Cube at 5:30 p.m.(ET).
