SHARE No Shot Clock, Ep. 65: Beware of the suburbs

Michael O’Brien and Joe Henricksen’s weekly Chicago high school basketball podcast. On this week’s episode we give our two takes and then dive into a big mailbag.

Matt Troha from the Illinois High School Association followed up with some info on how/why the supersectional assignments were changed, so there is plenty of state tournament format talk. We get intothe big Curie-Orr showdown from last weekalong with the Chicago Elite Classic. Also a look ahead at a big week of hoops including the Team Rose shootout at Mount Carmel on Saturday and Sunday, the Collins shootout and some big conference matchups on Friday.

Questions anwered include:

-Is Waukegan still a Super 25 team?

-Which teams are the biggest early-season surprises and disappointments?

-Underrated teams

-Best high school gyms

-Is Morgan Park sophomore Adam Miller the state’s next big thing?

-Why isn’t Belleville West’s EJ Liddell ranked higher nationally?

That and so much more….
