Sincere Callwood and Simeon (19-14) defeated Marian Catholic, 48-46, on a shot in the final seconds to move on to the Class 4A Eisenhower sectional championship against Homewood-Flossmoor (23-7) on Friday. Homewood-Flossmoor upset Bloom, 64-61, in overtime in the other semifinal.

The early thought was it would be a Chicago Heights battle in the title game of this rugged sectional as Bloom and Marian Catholic were the top two seeds. But it's going to be the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds instead in a rematch of a game that took place in December.

Homewood-Flossmoor traveled to Simeon for an early-season showdown. Simeon came away with a 57-54 win.

You have to love the toughness and grit Homewood-Flossmoor is playing with right now. The Vikings were without their two leading scorers, Issac Stanback and RJ Ogom, in the regional final, yet still knocked off a 24-win St. Rita team. H-F then avenged their two regular-season losses to Bloom by beating the No. 1 seed in the sectional semifinal.

Simeon has beaten Brother Rice in overtime and Marian Catholic by just two points to get to this point. More importantly, the Wolverines are healthy and playing their best basketball of the season. H-F has the size and length to try and slow down 20-point scorer Antonio Reeves. But the contributions, both big and small and at both ends of the floor, are coming from a variety of players.

The meat-grinder of a sectional continues, with the reward being a matchup with either Curie, the No. 1 ranked team in the state, or state power Young in the super-sectional.

NBA Draft Combine Notebook: Nicolas Claxton Displays Versatility - 6 days ago
CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock. Regardless, there were a number of intriguing players who benefited this week. There were also some guys who struggled. Some of the more noteworthy perform...   [read more]
