Red-South conference capsule


Outlook: The beat goes on for Simeon. They may have lost three prime-time players but they have reloaded with a group of potential stars. Morgan Park and Bogan will be hot on the Wolverines’ heels with their tenacious style of play and Vocational is much improved. The home-and-home series will be a major factor in conference play.

Top five players

Josh Cunningham, Morgan Park, F, Sr.; Donte Ingram, Simeon, F, Sr.; Ed Morrow, Simeon F, Jr.; DJ Williams, Simeon, F, Jr.; Luwane Pipkins, Bogan, PG, Jr.

Did you know? There is one team that has defeated Simeon on its home floor in the past four years: Bogan.

Quote: “The other two teams in the conference seem to get all the respect, but look at our record and tell me why we are not mentioned up there too?” — Bogan coach Arthur Goodwin.

Predicted finish: Simeon, Morgan Park, Bogan, Vocational, Harlan, Brooks.
