Maine South has a very nice team, and will be highly rated in the 4A polls. This game got MS to an impressive 10-1 record. They are talented and well coached. They have a 6'4" center with a full ride to the University of Illinois, and their point guard has a full ride to St.Louis University. So they have a tough inside-outside combo at work.
It is a long trip to Chicago to play. Some would say, why go that far for a game.

Our surprise over the years is to see how many downstate teams go to Chicago to play.
