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
(7) Simeon vs. (15) Morgan Park
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.
