No Shot Clock, Ep. 66: The surprise teams

SHARE No Shot Clock, Ep. 66: The surprise teams

Michael O’Brien and Joe Henricksen’s weekly Chicago high school basketball podcast. On this week’s episode we give our two takes and dive into a big mailbag. This week’s special feature is a breakdown of the season’s surprise teams: St. Laurence, Naperville Central, Sandburg, Glenbrook North, Mundelein, Latin and Schurz. We also make a plea for info about undefeated Westmont.

We look back at Orr vs. Danville and Romeoville vs. Hillcrest and look ahead at all of the week’s best games, including an extended preview of Bolingbrook vs. Romeoville.

Questions anwered include:

-Why weren’t more blue bloods involved with Derrick Rose’s recruitment?

-Has Chase Adams lived up to the hype?

-Where would Danville, Belleville West, Bloomington, etc. fit into the Super 25 if they were eligible?

-Who is the most entertaining player to watch in the city?

-Which teams in the north suburbs do you think could make a run to Peoria?

That and so much more….
