Westinghouse vs Lincoln Park. This is a rematch of their game at the Hinsdale Holiday Tournament in December. In that game Lincoln Park won 53-35. However, since then Westinghouse is 7-4 including wins against Farragut and Marshall. Westinghouse is led by 6-5 foward Coreyoun Rushin(jr-pictured above). The junior can do it all as he is 2nd on the team in points( 12.8ppg) and leads the teams in rebounds (8.1 rpg), steals (1.6 steals per game), and blocks (1.7 blocks per game). He is super athletic and plays above the rim. His play reminds me of a young Scottie Pippen. 6-2 guard Joshua Roberts(sr, G, 6-2) leads Westinghouse in scoring with 16.2 ppg. Also watch out for big man Alfred Evans(sr, 6-6, 305lbs). Evans, at 305lbs takes a lot of space down low. Lincoln Park beat Lindblom in the first round. Lincoln Park has been boosted with the return of Amari Freeman(6-6, F, sr). Freeman an all-city wide receiver was hurt for most of the season with a shoulder injury but he appears back as he looked good (including a slam dunk) in their win over Lindblom. Sophomore Julius Fancelino(so, 6-1, G) has emerged for Lincoln Park as he led the Lions with 16 points in their win over Lindblom. I like Lincoln Park in this game by about 10 points.
Red-North champion Uplift plays against a tough Farragut team tonight. If both Uplift and Lincoln Park win, it will give the Red-North a rare two teams in the CPS quarterfinals.
