By Joe Henricksen

The Jack Tosh Holiday Tournament at York High School will tip off Dec. 27, and defending champ Downers Grove South will have a big-time challenger in De La Salle, which earned the No. 1 seed.

A title tilt featuring DGS, led by the senior tandem of Jerron Wilbut and Jamal Millison, and De La Salle and its young talent, including 6-8 Gavin Schilling and 6-7 Alex Foster is an easy prediction. But the likes of Waubonsie Valley with sharpshooter Jared Brownridge, St. Ignatius and others hope to make a difference in those plans.

Here is a look at the first-round matchups at York (in bracket order).
