Joe Henrickson, editor and publisher of City/Suburban Hoops Report, has been observing, scouting and evaluating high school basketball talent in Illinois since the 1989-90 season. Here are his selections as the top 10 teams of his era:
1. King 1990: Without question the most dominating team during my time. They just dominated, beat people up. Jamie Brandon became only one of five players in state history to score more than 3,000 points in his career.
2. Proviso East 1991: Had the Big Three of Donnie Boyce, Michael Finley and Sherrell Ford but was also deep with underclass guys like Kenny Davis, Jamal Robinson and Ray Gay who went on to win a state title the following year.
