Public League heavyweights Whitney Young and Simeon will battle in one semifinal, with fellow heavyweights Morgan Park and Curie locking up in the other. Whitney Young advanced with a win over Kenwood while Simeon defeated Farragut to advance.
Simeon will send Evan Gilyard (UTEP), Talen Horton-Tucker and Kezo Brown in to oppose Whitney Young’s Xavier Castaneda, Lucas Williamson and Javon Freeman.
Ayo Dosunmu of Morgan Park and Elijah Joiner (Tulsa) of Curie will line up opposite of one another in the other semifinal in a highly enticing backcourt match-up. Morgan Park defeated North Lawndale to advance while Curie held off Orr.
The match-ups are now set for the semifinal round of the Chicago Public League Playoffs this Friday at Chicago State.
