Morgan Park, Blackshear...Shows it is the Real Deal vs Notre Dame
Morgan Park 57 Notre Dame 45
I traveled down to Niles,IL to the Notre Dame High School for Boys to check out this great match up : an undefeated Morgan Park, fresh off a victory in the St. Rita Thanksgiving Tournament vs Notre Dame (4-1) who won the Lane Tech Tournament over state powers Zion Benton and Mt. Carmel.
When I got there the frosh-soph game was still going on. I was impressed by the Notre Dame gym. It is a sunken gym with permanent attached seats. Great views in every seat and a great concession stand.

Notre Dame cheerleaders were in the house.
Here is a video of the first 10 minutes of the game (coming soon...)
Morgan Park controlled the entire game. They jumped out ot a quick 5-0 lead then never looked back from there. Pictured above is Quinton Chievous of Notre Dame (6-5, 190lb, jr) and Russell Smith 96-3, 17plb, jr) of Morgan Park.
Tim Hirsch (6-6, 180lb, sr) of Notre Dame tries to guard Wayne Blackshear of Morgan Park.....
....but Notre Dame had no defensive answer to Blackshear as Blackshear lit up Notre Dame with 28 points and 10 rebounds. No wonder people are talking about him as the top player in the junior class and maybe the top player in the state.
