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.

Malcolm Farrington (191-G-99) and DME Academy (FL) could not stay with Minnesota Prep (MN), 66-53, Thursday evening at the Grind Session World Championship.
