Young is playing an unprecedented schedule. The Dolphins play in eight states: Illinois, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California and Ohio. They play national powers like St. Benedict, Oak Hill, St. Vincent-St. Mary, Mater Dei and St. Anthony.

But there will not be a bigger game all season than the conference showdown with North Lawndale at the Dolphin Dome on Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m. Get there early.

Please send all boys basketball schedules to preps@chicagosuntimes.com or fax them to 312-321-0122.

THE BIG QUESTION IS - WILL WHITNEY YOUNG STAND UP
PHYSICALLY TO THE RIGORS OF A SCHEDULE OF THIS
MAGNITUDE?
IF THEY DO AND DON'T WIN THE STATE, THEY WILL HAVE
TRAVELED 8 STATES FOR NOTHING!
WHITNEY YOUNG MIGHT BE A MAGNET SCHOOL, BUT THEY AREN'T
A PREP SCHOOL, THAT SPECIFICALLY GETS BUILT TO TRAVEL
LIKE THEY ARE TRYING TO DO, I HOPE IT WORKS OUT,
THEY HAVE TO STAY HEALTHY, THEY HAVE LET THE GENIE OUT
OF THE BOTTLE, THEY CAN'T CALL THE SCHOOLS AND SAY, WE
AREN'T GOING TO FINISH THE SCHEDULE BECAUSE OF INJURIES!
