Ottawa: The Pirates are unbeaten behind the talented backcourt of Wyatt Hill and Myles Tucker.

Simeon: The win against Homewood-Flossmoor gets the Wolverines back into the rankings after just one week away. Antonio Reeves has been consistently good this season. There is a ton of talk about the younger prospects, but Reeves is the rock that Robert Smith has really been able to depend on.


Riverside-Brookfield: The rollercoaster team so far this season. The Bulldogs fall out again after losing to Richards.

Glenbrook South: The CSL South is a total meat grinder. The Titans lost to Maine South and fall out for now.
