In simplified form, here’s what happened in the second round of the big city tournament Wednesday:

Bogan 87, Uplift 54

Foreman 81, Farragut 71

Hyde Park 71, Orr 69

Marshall 68, Julian 66

Morgan Park 72, Young 53

North Lawndale 57, Curie 53

Robeson 40, Lincoln Park 49

Simeon 47, Von Steuben 37

Here are the quarterfinal matchups (with seeds):

(1) Foreman vs. (9) Robeson

(4) Bogan vs. (5) Marshall

(3) Hyde Park vs. (11) North Lawndale

The big upset was Wayne Blackshear-led Morgan Park’s 19-point win over Young, the top-ranked team by the Sun-Times.

I’ve looked around, but I can’t find out when the quarterfinals are played. I assume they will be played next week. FYI: The boys Class 3A and 4A pairings will be released Friday.
