Here's the second group of season previews. Follow me on Twitter @michaelsobrien for more. Coaches, please send any info on your team to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Barrington: Could be a big season for second-year coach Bryan Tucker. Broncos have talent with guard Brad Zaumseil and 6-7 John Schneider.
Bartlett: Program on the rise, seems to get better every season. 6-2 soph guard Lance Whitaker might be the most talented player yet.
Batavia: One of the top programs--great fan support and a wonderful gym. Don't miss the Night of Hoops. Watch for 6-6 sr. Elliot Vaughn.
Beecher: Bad record last year, but competitive. Jake Hering and Aaron Mahnke return. Lineup tops out at 6-2, but they have speed.
Benet: Top 3 team. Led by point guard David Sobolewski (Northwestern) and center Frank Kaminisky (Wisconsin). Matt Parisi can play too.
Best Practice: Beat Austin and Collins last season, but unable to get it done against higher quality competition. Should be improved.
Bishop McNamara: Some interesting young talent. jr Jamar Rivera can score. Keep an eye on 6-3 jr Dave Roney and 6-4 soph Michael Hoekstra.
Bloom: Always a major factor in the south suburbs. Senior guard Donald Moore is one of the really underrated players in the state.
Bogan: Last season's Cinderella story has plenty of talent back, including a pair of sophs: 6-7 Moshawn Thomas and point guard Phillip Lee.
Bolingbrook: 6-7 twin towers Devon Hodges and LaTree Russell give them an impressive frontcourt, but guards are a major question mark.
Bowen: So much in the Public League Blue is a mystery. 8-8 last year with wins over no one impressive. Lost to Harper.
Bradley: 6-6 SR Austin Halcomb gives them some size, he's an NAIA quality player. Guards Jovaughn Shiers and Kurt Homberg can shoot.
Bremen: Coach Brian Flaherty had things moving in the right direction, but resigned to deal with family issues. Matt Meany takes over.
Bronzeville: Another mysterious Blue division team. They were 5-11 last season, 2-7 in the Blue-South. No reason to not expect the same.
Brooks: Bobby Locke takes over for Chris Head. This is the year for the group (Marshall, Powell, Grays) that has been starting 4 years.
Brother Rice: Things just haven't been the same since Bobby Frasor left. Aren't there any more Harrigans?
Buffalo Grove: Coach Ryan O'Connor has quietly put together an impressive 9 year run. He's 149-100 with 4 20-win seasons.
Burlington Central: Returns five players from last season's 13-14 team, including leading scorers Ray Hunnicutt and Sam Klein.
