| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Here's the fifth group of season previews. Follow me on Twitter @michaelsobrien for more. Coaches, please send any info on your team to mobrien@suntimes.com.

East Aurora: See them at least once this year. Ryan Boatright is entertaining and electric. He's a top Player of the Year candidate.

Eisenhower: Young and ready to run. Led by SR guard AJ Bridges. It's coach Mike Curta's third season. He feels they are ready to win.

Elgin: Bad record last season, but made a nice little run in the playoffs. Watch junior Kory Brown.

Elgin Academy: Trying to rebound from a rough season. Lost 76-10 to Westminster Christian in the playoffs. Played a game with just 6 guys.

Elk Grove: Will be looking to build on last season's strong second half. Played well once the entire team was back and healthy.

Ellison: One of the better new programs, riding a wave after winning the Chicago Prep conference last season.

Elmwood Park: New coach Mike Wasielewski has talented JR guard Julian Molina. Led the team in points, boards, assists, steals, blocks.

Evanston: New coach Mike Ellis was a great hire. Hehas a point guard (Garrett Jones) and a big (6-8 James Farr). Should be a Super 25 team.

Evergreen Park: Lost a lot, will be led by senior guards TJ Cobbs and Dillon Knight. Watch for 6-2 forward Marcus Kemp to contribute.

Here's the fourth group of season previews. Follow me on Twitter @michaelsobrien for more. Coaches, please send any info on your team to mobrien@suntimes.com.

De La Salle: Everyone knows about Shaw. Dre Henley is back, and the last time he was at De he was fantastic. Young guards are the ? mark.

Deerfield: Dukan is at Wis. After leading them to a dream season last year. This year will be rebuilding, but the stakes have been raised.

Downers North: 12 players back from last season's 8-18. Boys soccer player of the year Paul Hogan also plays basketball

Downers South: Will challenge Proviso East for conf. title. Likely Super 25 team led by JR guards Jerron Wilbut and Jamal Millison.

Dunbar: Star football player Dervall Harris also a major hoops player. He's a 6-5 JR. Add 6-3 JR Bill Davis and this is a team to watch.

Dundee-Crown: Coach Lance Huber says "looking to rebound after a tough last season.Hope the team blends together and everyone accepts roles.

DuSable: Legendary program has falling on some hard times. Loads of talent surrounds the school, but most of the players end up elsewhere.

Dwight: AAU guys love to say Jens Kennedy, a 6-8 senior, is the type of player they give exposure to. S-T did cover him 3 times last year.

Dyett: Possible state darkhorse in 2A. Solid starting 5 including Steven Summerall, Anthony Clinton and 6-5 SR Cagette Reggs.

Here's the third group of season previews. Follow me on Twitter @michaelsobrien for more. Coaches, please send any info on your team to mobrien@suntimes.com.

Carmel: The Corsairs went out and got a very good coach. Tim Bowen was the defensive mastermind behind Waukegan the past three seasons.

Carver: 6-4 SR Deshawn Delaney is one of the state's hidden gems. JR Michael Howell is a player too. They could be a surprise force.

Cary-Grove: NW Herald readers named the 2001 team the best team in their area in the 2000s. Good team, but didn't even make state.

Chicago Academy: New coach Randy Stonewall is hyping FR guard Jeremy Williams. Also got 2 top players back: Conner Hooper and Darrick Scott.

Chicago Christian: At least 6-4 at all 5 spots. Led by 6-6 Adam Lindemulder, 6-5 Jason VanderLaan and 6-5 guard Dan VanGroningen.

Chicago Math & Science: 6-3 FR starter Jajuan Jackson will team with 4 returning starters including brothers Jonathan and Brian Barbee.

Chicagoland Jewish: 15-11 last season, haven't been able to get any info on this season.

Christian Liberty: Another fail. They finished 14-10 last season, but don't even have a coach listed.

Clemente: Dropped to the Blue. Will be led by three transfers, O'Neal Gates, Greg Turner and Kendall Harrison. Follow @osetag22 for updates.

Coal City: Coalers have a new coach (Brad Boresi), a new gym and and a new Thanksgiving tourney, featuring Morris, Gardner and St. Bede.

Collins: 12-6 overall and 6-3 in the Blue-West. Finished fourth, so another year in the Blue is ahead.

Conant: Tom McCormack (the only coach I know that practices before school) is back for his 26th season. Always well-coached and dangerous.

Corliss: Coach David Keys says they will win the Blue-South. Led by 6-5 Devonte York, athletic junior getting DI looks.

Crane: Underrated Kieran Woods is back and people are talking about FR Marlon Jones. Also watch 6-9 Crete-Monee transfer Kaylen Shane.

Crete-Monee: Loaded with Jamie Crockett, JR Mike Orris and SO Marvie Keith. Injury to 6-8 SR Greg Mays is a huge setback though.

Cristo Rey: Christian Mendoza (9 ppg) and Noe Macias are back from last season. Cristeros were 4-19 last season.

CL Central: Promising summer, lost to North Lawndale by only one point. Led by Joe Pijanowski, Chase Cane and Jake Chrystal.

CL South: 4 out of 5 starters back, including Kevin Rogers (13 ppg) and Ethan Breitenstein (9 ppg).

Curie: 4-year starting PG Greg Travis, a #UIC recruit, is back. Sophs won city last season. Watch 6-8 FR Cliff Alexander.
