Tipped Off: Michael O'Brien's hoops notebook

The next brother
Nobody is paying any attention to TEAM Englewood. I haven't seen them and don't know how good they are, but they are 7-2 and have a point guard with a serious basketball pedigree--Johnny Roland, the younger brother of Luther and Crandall Head.

Roland has been putting up impressive numbers all season. Tuesday night in a 62-49 win over Dyett he scored 24 points and dished out 10 assists.

Curie beats Hyde Park

Well, Curie certainly did prove me wrong Tuesday night. The Condors displayed a lot more patience in their win over Hyde Park than they did in the previous two games I'd watched them play. It was a huge win, possibly enough for the conference title. They also provided some nice proof that people are reading this blog, refusing to talk with me after the game because of yesterday's notebook in which I wrote that they were "a bit overrated right now."

Wednesday's games
It's a really good slate of games for a Wednesday. If I can get out of the office in time I'm going to head over to see Vocational at Bogan. Both teams have some top-notch guards.
Young at Orr is another great bet. There are only a few chances to see Young play this year, unless you want to buy a plane ticket.
Bolingbrook at Neuqua Valley should be the best bet in the suburbs.
